Seasick Steve 2024 UK Tour

Seasick Steve recently released two new tracks ‘Funky Music‘ and ‘Let The Music Talk‘, the latest music to be taken from his upcoming new album A Trip A Stumble A Fall Down On Your Knees, which is due for release on 7th June via SO Recordings. On top of his June run of UK instore and outstore performances, a huge run of UK and EU tour dates has been announced, as well as additions to the main stages at Latitude Festival, Black Deer Festival and Wychwood Festival.

It’s been almost twenty years since Seasick Steve’s celebrated appearance on Jools Holland’s Hootenanny launched the unknown American singer-songwriter to worldwide fame, and his beat-up three-string Japanese guitar and old wooden stompbox made musical history. The overwhelming response surprised nobody more than Steve himself, and was like a lightning strike; the impact of which is still being felt close to two decades later, as he has gone onto play almost every major festival in the World, rack up over two million album sales, and release three UK Top 10 albums.

Following on the heels of the album’s lead single ‘Backbone Slip‘, Steve had the following to say about new cut ‘Funky Music’: “This track is super fun to play! It’s just about funking it up, I have always loved funk! Bands like ‘Sly & The Family Stone’, ‘Tower Of Power’ you know, that was the influence here, it’s a soul thang!”

Continuing about the album, he says: “This album was made by mistake, as the title suggests we just tripped and stumbled into it, and it became my favourite album ever and the piece of work I’m most proud of to date. There’s not a week goes by that I don’t thank my lucky stars for that night on the Hootenanny which has brought us here to this record”.

His new record A Trip A Stumble A Fall Down On Your Knees is released on 7th June 2024 via So Recordings and available to pre-order now. It’s a record he proudly says is his favourite to date.
