FEDERAL CHARM / ‘Crossing The Divide’ Tour / 2016

‘No holds barred, fiery, inventive rock ’n’ roll’ – Classic Rock Federal Charm are back on the road in June with their own ‘Crossing The Divide’ tour. 17 dates stretching out from June 10th ’til July 23rd. Headlining each show each night and playing a 90-minute set per night minimum, supporting the release of ’Master Plan’ from the acclaimed new album ‘Across The Divide’. In the spirit of brotherhood and good intentions, Federal Charm have stretched out a hand and offered a leg-up to local support acts where possible. Night-by-night young budding bands will open the show. So, think on and support your local community… ‘Federal Charm are one of the most animated, loud, raucous bands on the UK circuit today’ – Blues Matters 2015 was a very fine year for Federal Charm : 1) ’Across The Divide’, their second album, was released and met with critical acclaim both here and abroad : ‘Across The Divide is huge - in sound and in talent. Nothing short of ear-candy’ – Fireworks 2) UK shows with Black Star Riders, Joanne Shaw Taylor and UFO to, again, highly positive reviews. and 3) Slots on the main stages at the Minehead Giants of Rock, The Rock & Blues Festival in Skegness, and at Hard Rock Hell 9 in Pwllheli to rapturous applause. 2016 is shaping up in a similar manner with Giants Of Rock (again), a Planet Rock sponsored UK tour in March with Australian rockers Tracer, and the second release from ‘Across The Divide’ – ‘Guess What’ – play-listed at Planet Rock for 6 week. ‘Master Plan’ will be released to coincide with the ‘Crossing The Divide’ tour with nationwide radio and media promotion in support. Federal Charm are full of twin-guitar twists and stop-start rhythms. Their original take and fresh direction on the classic rock curve has turned many. They draw from a deep well – from The Allman Brothers to Led Zeppelin, stopping off on the way to pay a call in at Free and Thin Lizzy, the revamp-blues of The Black Keys and the contemporary bluster of Rival Sons. But hey! Don’t just take our word for it… ‘Swaggering riffs, sleazy slide flourishes and cinder raw vocals with a confidence that is utterly winning’ – Classic Rock ‘You need big balls to do this stuff justice, and there are four XXL pairs here’ – Blues & Soul ‘Great riffs. Fantastic musicianship. Phenomenal vocals. Really good songs. Their big sound cannot be restrained’ – Amazon ‘Federal Charm raid the Delta masters, apply Seventies chest hair and frog march the result into the 21st Century’ – Classic Blues
