Sam Fender on Saturday 10th November 2018
Birmingham Promoters by arrangement with CAA Presents
+ special guests
Sam Fender releases Dead Boys, a devastating new track that laments the ever-growing global issue of male suicide. It is lifted from a forthcoming debut EP.
The new single launches alongside news of a new twelve date UK headline tour, running throughout November, including a second night at London’s OMEARA which sold out within 24 hours on announce last month. The tour concludes with a hometown show at Newcastle University on the 17th November.

The fast-rising young Tyneside musician knows his way around a hook and a melody, and he combines them here with knowing words that reflect issues both pertinent and pressing. Acerbic and poised, Sam’s ever-present eye, ear and mind for social consciousness, political awareness, and delivered with his cavernous vocal should declare Sam Fender as the real deal.
Recently signed to Polydor Records, Dead Boys is Sam’s most powerful statement to date. Raw, both in its subject matter and in its delivery, this silent epidemic of male suicide grows louder by the week, and this extremely likeable, driven new voice brings the topic to the fore. Crucially, the song’s poignancy isn’t at the expense of a brilliant, belting tune. A song for the masses.
Having sneaked on to the BBC Sound of 2018 longlist at the turn of the year, Sam has since spent most of it out on the road, which is where he’ll remain for the foreseeable future.
