The Jokers – Status Quo date and single release (UPDATED with new tour dates)

The Jokers - HurricaneVital British classic hard rockers, and a highlight of this year’s Wildfire Festival, The Jokers perform as Special Guests of Status Quo at Parc Y Scarlets Stadium, Llanelli on Saturday August 27th.

Singer Wane Parry states that:

We are thrilled to be opening for the legendary Status Quo at the Parc Y Scarlets Stadium. Being from a Rock ‘n’ Roll background ourselves, The Jokers have looked up to Status Quo ever since we were kids. Being a Welsh man myself it is an honour to be playing such a venue in my beautiful home country.

The Jokers are releasing a brand new single 28th October “Silver City”, with B/side “Summer Time” taken from their highly acclaimed third album, Hurricane, on Steamhammer / SPV. “Silver City” was recorded at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studios, and produced, engineered and mixed by Tom Size (Aerosmith, David Lee Roth, Journey, Steve Miller Band, Huey Lewis, Mr. Big) at the Tomland Studios, San Francisco.

“Silver City” is a power driven hypnotic sing a long rock tune with an infectious chorus and a groove you can’t help but move to and the band will be premiering the new video for this single end of October.

You can pick up Hurricane on Amazon and help keep us in pennies! It’s available on CDvinyl or as a download.
