Touring is important, just ask Bob Dylan.
On June 7th, 1988 Dylan performed live at the Concord Pavilion in California and pretty much hasn’t stopped since. Through decades of journeys and thousands of gigs, he has perhaps become the most obvious, and emphatic, example of embracing the medium which truly makes a musician tick. Today, it’s known as the Never Ending tour – and is showing no signs of slowing up.
Out on the road and up on a stage is where a musician really discovers what they’re about, where everything that makes a band or artist tick collides together. With adoring fans screaming back your songs, it all suddenly makes sense. It becomes a drug some find hard to kick. Dylan understands that.
And so do Twin Atlantic. After releasing their superb second album ‘Free‘ last year, the Scottish band have embarked on their own world-wide slog to show off a record which brilliantly tows the line between hard rock leanings and mass-pleasing anthems – an album that positively demands to be witnessed by millions. Over the past twelve months, Twin Atlantic have given that a damn good go.
