Paul Heaton drops some Acid
Paul Heaton releases his brand new single and album in September 2010 and will be touring the UK. Acid Country is released a week after a single 'The Ladder's Bottom Rung' on 13th September. Having recently made a headline appearance on the Leftfield Stage at Glastonbury in June and played a storming set at Latitude, shows at V Festival follow in August and a full tour in September. He has also just been announced as support on the Madness tour for November/December.
Paul previewed some of the songs from ‘Acid Country’ – as well as tracks from his previous solo outing and a couple of classic offerings from his Housemartin days - in May 2010 when he embarked on the ‘Pedals and Beer Pumps Tour’. He travelled to 16 pubs by bicycle, cycling over 1000 miles in the process and playing some of the best shows of his career. Starting off at the Rovers Return on Coronation Street and fitting in a quick date at the Woolpack in Emmerdale, the dates saw him highlighting the plight of local boozers and celebrating cycling as an environmentally friendly (and very healthy!) method of touring.
