“The most exciting voice in UK punk right now!” – Kerrang!
“Putting punk and protest back into the mainstream” – The Guardian
“Given the Frank Turner stamp of approval, Louise whips up a storm of passionate, punk’n’roll, somehow conjuring up both Kathleen Hanna and Roy Orbison.” – John Kennedy, Radio X
Friday 12th October 2018 – Louise Distras is pleased to announce she’s back on the road for a stretch of headline tour dates next January.
Commenting on the news, Louise says
“It’s going to be just me, my guitar, and my songs. I can’t wait to hit the road and finally share everything I’ve been working on over the past 12 months.”
This year Distras announced she’s been recording her sophomore album in Oakland CA with producer Ross Petersen (Bruce Springsteen, Goo Goo Dolls, The Vamps). Set for release in 2019, Louise says the new record will “take the songs to a new level with harder hitting lyrics and harder hitting concepts.”
