GLASS CAVES ANNOUNCE UK TOUR
this troupe could be found on the streets of cities like York and Leeds, busking to get themselves known, whilst bringing in vital readies to self-fund recordings, CD’, PR campaigns and less important things, like food and rent.
Today you’ll still catch the four-piece still playing live, for free, on high streets across the region. Their ever-growing fan base remains home brewed, their tones unadulterated by label and management intervention. Honest as the day is young this combination of straight talk and natural talent is about to hit the road in April-June 2017, calling at

The tour follows the April 7th release of release the wonderful 'Swim' as follow-up single to 'Do you have a name'. 'Swim' is one of a brace of fine new tunes suggesting a departure from the 'indie rock' vibe of the first album, towards a fuller, more mature and accomplished sound. Though 'Swim' still retains the passion and ambition like other favourites such as 'This Road' or 'Breaking Out'. 'Swim' is anthemic, as many of Glass Caves' songs with an infectious chant that will no doubt be screamed by fans. The song reaches a massive climax that ends so timely and so cleverly that you might just need to play it again!
Musically, all their songs depict a more soulful and groove-based vibe, allowing for more space in the song arrangements than ever before. The main idea is to align great pop melodies with songs that reflect the current state of the nation. Being picked for band of the week on skiddle and picked up by legendary producer Tim Palmer. Glass Caves are of course performing at many venues and festivals this year which is a great follow up to their love of busking the only difference being a bigger crowd.
Drummer Elliott Fletcher, guitarist Connor Thorpe and singer Matt Hallas.
