Introducing His Lordship!

“MAKES THE CRAMPS SOUND LIKE YACHT ROCK” – JOHN NIVEN

His Lordship, the new project from guitarist James Walbourne (The Pretenders, The Pogues, The Rails) and Kristoffer Sonne (Chrissie Hynde, Willie Nelson) have announced their first UK tour, kicking off with their rescheduled, sold out show at The Lexington on 20th April and taking in 11 cities across the UK, including a Harlow show at Burnt Mill Snooker & Social Club on 28th May. Already having made an indelible mark on London’s live scene, His Lordship is the sound of Walbourne unleashed as a frontman; a furious riot of raging guitar and perverted drums from another dimension.

In addition to the tour, the duo also announce their debut EP, a one take collection of rock ‘n’ roll covers, which came together in one evening after a long day of recording original songs (also coming soon). Deciding to let loose, they kept the tape rolling and filmed a set of rock’n’roll tunes they like to play. They didn’t even rehearse them. The finished EP is a first take 15 minute set of Stuff They Like. Gene Vincent, Jack Scott, Link Wray and The Killer.

The EP will be released on 16th April digitally, with a vinyl release to follow on Psychonaut Sounds.

Black Wax promoter Adam Smith – “I’m really pleased to be able to include a Harlow show as part of His Lordship’s first national tour. This is exactly the kind of show I’d have booked at The Square, and I’m keen to keep that spirit alive by using suitable venues in town. This show at Burnt Mill Social Club will be one of the highlights of the local live music calendar this year – don’t miss it!”

Tickets are ON SALE NOW
