Following the European tour with Zakk Wylde, the Wisconsin-bred guitar master that is Jared James Nichols returns to the UK this month for a series of headlining live concerts in June, including a gig at The Chester Live Rooms on Thursday June 23rd, followed by an extensive October UK tour supporting legendary blues guitarist Walter Trout.

To coincide with Jared’s return to the European stage, Listenable Records will release the Highwayman EP as an exclusive limited edition orange coloured 10 inch vinyl (500 copies).

On June 3rd, Jared digitally released a brand new single, Don’t You Try, accompanied by an official music video with a homage to the bikers of the 60s and 70s. “We’re really excited about the brand new kick-ass single,” says Jared. “I’m positive it’ll kick-start the shows into high gear.”

Written by Jared and producer/engineer Anthony Perry Jr., Don’t You Try was recorded at Swing House & Unison Music Group Studios in LA, and will appear on Jared’s next album in spring 2017.

“Basically, the song is about belief,” reflects Jared. “In all aspects of life. About, what you’re told when you’re young and how it has an impression on you. How strong other people’s words can be. How there is always something in the back of your mind, kind of chasing you. At the end of the day, you have to believe in what you want.”
The official music video is a celebratory homage to bikers. But how did Jared come up with the idea?

Says Jared – “It sounds crazy, but the idea came up when I was drifting to sleep! I remember the dream so vividly, I was cruising in my old Ford when all of the sudden I was taken over by a biker gang. We worked with L.A. Director Ben Strang and decided to make it a ‘homage” or “parody” if you will. It turned out funny as hell and undoubtedly a throwback to the classic exploitation Biker films of the late 60s early 70’s. We plan on opening our European shows with the song.”

Jared’s UK tour will see him kick things off at the Stone Free Festival in London on June 18th, followed by a series of headlining UK club dates where Jared will be supported by special guests Bad Touch and Dave Hanson.

Hailed as one of the most exciting new blues rock guitarists around, Jared is no stranger to UK audiences. In 2015 he supported Lynyrd Skynyrd in Germany, followed by an extensive UK tour supporting the legendary Glenn Hughes, where he won over critics with across-the-board rave reviews.
