For SHADOW SMILE, independence is king. They crowd-funded their debut album ‘Signed In Blood’ so they could be free to create the music they are passionate about without interference from labels or management (funded by the fans, for the fans). Now they are taking this self-funded DIY attitude Live on tour.

Having dominated the main stages at esteemed UK festivals including Call Of The Wild, Winter Rocks and Mayhem Festival, as well as opening for bands such as Skid Row and Terrorvision, Sheffield’s Shadow Smile have now set their sights on headliner status.  The tour will cover much of the UK in two legs (or Chapter 1 and Chapter 2) with an individually curated line up for each city.

We really wanted to make sure we were supporting grassroots venues and artists with a similar ethos to our own‘ said frontman Connor McGovern. ‘‘We realised we had to be in full control of the tour to do that, so we’ve hired the venues ourselves, booked the bands ourselves and will be managing each event ourselves
