Metropolis Music Presents: Wunderhorse, Live at The Louisiana, Bristol. Tuesday, 11th April 2023
+ support from Eades + The Outlines
Wunderhorse is pleased to announce his biggest headline tour to date, following the release of acclaimed debut album, Cub.
Tickets will be available from 9am Friday 28th October.
This tour announcement follows a breakout year which has seen Wunderhorse –AKA songwriter Jacob Slater –performing with Sam Fender,Foalsand Fontaines D.C; whom he supported throughout their USA and Europe tour upon the band’s request.
After a teenage Jacob Slater called it a day on fronting the much-hyped but ultimately ill-fated punk outfit Dead Pretties in 2017, he moved to Cornwall to take care of himself, indulge in his passion for surfing and live a less chaotic life.
The clean coastal air and slower pace of life quickly paid dividends, allowing Jacob to grow as an artist and apply himself to building an introspective and thoughtful songbook, without losing any of the bite from his previous endeavour.From the tightly-coiled claustrophobia of ‘Teal’,to the barnstorming blues-rock of ‘Leader of the Pack’, via to a bleary-eyed nostalgia of ‘17’, Cub’s tracks are the fruits of maturity: a testament to exiting the road to self-destruction, gaining perspective, and realising the potential of an abundant songwriting talent.In noteworthy extra-curricular, a busy 2022 was completed by Jacob making his acting debut as drummer Paul Cook in Danny Boyle’s PISTOL biopic series, which arrived on Disney+ in May.
Show starts at 7:00pm.
