I am really sorry to be pulling the show that you’ve bought tickets for. I see you as the avant-garde - quick off the mark to see me do my very first shows and I hugely appreciate the support.
As you can imagine launching a solo career in the midst of a pandemic and my previous band, The Correspondents, coming to an abrupt end has been a little complicated. Our schedule for releasing and touring has changed more times than we care to think about! But there is a lot of new material in the pipeline and a whole new approach to making music, videos and live shows which I can’t wait to share with you.
The former frontman of The Correspondents, one of Britains most in-demand festival acts for a decade, went solo in spectacular style last year, unveiling a new sound which draws on decades of UK dance music, from techno and jungle to garage and house. Mr Bruce will showcase his exciting new sound throughout the UK on a 12-date tour of some of the very best independent venues during March and April 2022.
On his debut release "Race To Nowhere!, Mr Bruce lets loose as never before. Lyrically candid yet flamboyant in delivery, as honest as it is inventive and as theatrical as we!ve come to expect from the bendy-bodied performer, the five track mini-album tackles issues from climate crisis and the death of Mr Bruce!s twin brother aged 20 to the breakdown of his marriage in 2019 and the sudden death in autumn 2020 of Tim Cole, his partner in The Correspondents for 13 action-packed years. The release comes with 4 music videos (many of which have been animated by Mr Bruce) that have been picked up by multiple film festivals and are already scooping up awards. The wheels are definitely in motion for this multifaceted artist.
Famed for his high energy antics and spectacular dancing # The Correspondents were named one of Glastonbury!s Top 10 acts by The Telegraph and the highlight of Wilderness by The Times # Mr Bruce was back on stage for a smattering of festival in Summer 2021 (Wilderness, Boardmasters, Solfest, ValleyFest, HowTheLightGetsIn & more), but this Spring tour will be his very first headline gigs to date. The brand new stage show featuring new choreography and some of his most flamboyant costumes to date will fuse together his latest material with a carefully selected handful of The Correspondents! hits to create a unique and unparalleled live experience.
Mr Bruce has something to say, stand up and act upon, and is able to express his love for dance music and his understanding of grief and loss with a deftness that he has acquired from more than a decade of writing hard hitting pop songs designed for the dance floor.
