Band set to fly into sunset with one last gig

THE Midlands will be one of several sites that will form part of a popular band's farewell tour.

For a full decade, Sam Duckworth has existed under the moniker of Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly.

His debut album 'Chronicles of A Bohemian Teenager' was released on Atlantic Records and went on to sell more than 100,000 copies in the UK, establishing Duckworth as a writer with something to say and opening the door to 10 years of adventure.

Support for all the final shows will be from Southampton's young folk-punk troubadour Seán McGowan, who recently released his debut single for Sunday Best Records.

The single was produced by Duckworth at his Amazing Grace studio in East London, and featuring friend and fan Frank Turner on backing vocals.

Sam and Seán are currently working on Seán's debut album, which should see the light of day in the first half of 2015.

Sam said: "Here we are, a month and a Glastonbury after announcing the end and there's a silver lining of some sorts.

"It doesn't feel right to just stay in London, as there are many of you around the country who I'd love to sing these songs with one last time.

"This will, however, be the only full band show of the tour – partly for logistics, a bit to make it less risky for promoters and mostly to close the chapter how it started."

The band will be stopping off at the Rescue Rooms, in Nottingham, on Wednesday, September 3.
