UK TOUR WITH MINI MANSIONS THIS MAY
ANNOUNCE UK FESTIVAL APPEARANCES AT HIT THE NORTH, NEIGHBOURHOOD WEEKENDER AND END OF THE ROAD
“Every now and then a band comes along with such panache that you have to wonder if the band are real at all. Sons of Raphael could be that band.” – Loud and Quiet
“The title track’s melding of Beach Boys-like vocals, Pink Floydian portentousness, choral harmonies, brass, woodwind and fairground organ is a statement of intent…” – Sunday Times Culture
Sons of Raphael – brothers Loral and Ronnel Raphael – announce they’ll be joining Mini Mansions on their UK tour this May. The 13-date tour kicks off in Glasgow on the 6th and ends in Liverpool on the 27th. The band have also been announced to play a handful of festivals this Summer including Hit The North in Newcastle (3/5), Neighborhood Festival in Manchester (25/5) and End of the Road in Dorset (1/9).
Full list of shows below and tickets available to buy here.
In September 2018, Sons of Raphael released their ‘A Nation of Bloodsuckers’ EP on Because Music. The four-track EP features the title track, which came accompanied by a stunning video and ‘Jesus’, alongside ‘Eating People’ and ‘Rio’, both taken from their debut AA single.
