Rising US star Stephen Wilson Jr. will bring his signature blend of indie, grunge and country to the UK for a headline tour this October before heading to Europe. Tickets (available here) go on sale Friday, June 14th, 10 am local.

Wilson says:

“The UK/EU has my heart & we are coming back this autumn for our first headlining tour. A dream that’s suddenly became a reality. My father has passed but his story is alive and well & being told all over the world. Can’t wait to see you all.”

The self-proclaimed “Death Cab For Country” singer will also be making his TV debut on Later… with Jools Holland this Sat 15th June, performing his song “Year to Be Young 1994” from his debut album søn of dad, which came out last year via Big Loud Records.

Wilson shares:

“If you’re lucky enough to have lived, you’re going to grieve something. It is the most human thing we have, and we grieve on a level that is unmatched. Writing and making this album has been very therapeutic for me to learn who I am and what my existence looks like after my father. Because life has to go on. I’m living my own life, but it’s like his death book ended what life he should have had onto mine and I’m carrying it around like a train car.”

Known for his rousing and emotive performances, the forthcoming headline tour follows his recent visit supporting The Cadillac Three and a standout performance at the CMA Songwriters Series at The O2 as part of the C2C Festival in March.

In February, Wilson Jr. also made his US television debut on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers with a raucous performance of his viral hit “Cuckoo” and more recently performed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
