The Ray Summers - Coming to a venue near you...

Alright man!
Just thought I'd give you a wee update on whit we're up to!
Following on from yesterday's announcement about more shows added to the tour with Kassidy, The Ray Summers are pleased to announce that they will headline King Tuts on Friday 9th April.
The band have played Tuts a number of times and will again take to the stage after 2 memorable sell outs, including the launch of their debut single on the famous venues's label, King Tuts recordings last August
Tickets are available from /or the King Tuts bar
After a successful 2009 that has seen the band release 2 singles, an EP, appear at festivals and perform countless gigs around the UK. The band have started 2010 off with a bang by performing 3 shows in London in February, whilst also playing a number of shows in Scotland with Vertigo Records latest signing - Kassidy. Between these gigs the band have been in the studio laying down the tracks that will make up their debut album scheduled for release in the summer.
The Ray Summers saw in 2009 with Paolo Nutini and Idlewild in George Square. They then went on to release their first EP in April with a full UK tour to mark this including a date at the Camden Crawl. Sessions followed on Radio 1, Northsound, TayFM and various student stations.
The Summer saw them taking to the stages at T in The Park, Rock Ness, The Edge, Wizard, Hinterland, Liverpool Sound City, Go North, Electric Bay and Perth Music Festivals.

King Tuts Recordings released debut single 'The Shepherd' in August and it charted at number 8 in the Scottish charts outselling Beyonce!
In The City in Manchester asked the band to play 2 shows, both ended up rammed and have been good for the bands profile.
2nd single 'Zagora Road' was released in November with a show at Glasgow's Oran Mor. On the same night the band played a special full band acoustic set that shows the amazing talent this band has.
The Ray Summers are looking forward to releasing their third single in April with the launch at King Tuts.

"Remember when The Coral used to write those tunes that would, without warning, skew off on another key, another tempo, another planet altogether? The Ray Summers do it better."
