High-energy punk rockers Nathan Gray and The Iron Roses have announced a string of UK and EU tour dates this November. With special guests Clowns and Smoke or Fire‘s Joe McMahon, the 15-date tour begins on 28th November in Austria and finishes up on 13th December in Manchester.
This tour marks the first time both Gray and McMahon have toured Europe since the Covid-19 pandemic, and is also Gray‘s first time touring with the full Iron Roses line-up.
Nathan Gray and The Iron Roses released their last full-length album, Rebel Songs, in 2021 via End Hits. Smoke or Fire recently released a collection of their rare and out-of-print material with Beauty Fades, featuring some of the best songs the band has ever written that Joe McMahon often still plays in his live sets.
With a sound as diverse as its bandmates, Nathan Gray and The Iron Roses deliver high-energy, punk-driven music for the excluded, unheard and unseen self-healers of the world. They seamlessly bring together three-part harmonies, doo-wop, reggae, heart-pounding anthemic punk guitars, and hip-hop into one set while bringing a message of love and support for all.
Led by Nathan Gray, a 25 year veteran of the stage, Nathan Gray and The Iron Roses’ latest release Rebel Songs is a melting pot of influences that Gray grew up on. For him, it was important to build a band that represents many, and the formation of the Iron Roses brought together a group of humans who share Gray’s passion for music and the human experience.
Many of them are very open about their own struggles with mental illness and trauma, and that vulnerability has made their live show and their fanbase what it is – a loving, inclusive gathering of people unafraid to be broken.
