Matt Pearce & The Mutiny Announce Tour, as Special Guests of Laurence Jones Band

Matt Pearce & The Mutiny Announce Tour, as Special Guests of Laurence Jones Band


Matt Pearce & The Mutiny are delighted to announce that they will be undertaking their first tour, as special guests of Laurence Jones Band. This tour builds on the highly-successful release of the band’s debut album ‘Gotta Get Home’ and a series of storming festival appearances. What’s more, Matt Pearce & the Mutiny will be releasing their next single (a radio edit of the album’s epic title track) today Friday 26th July, which has been playlisted by Planet Rock.

As Matt himself puts it,  “After some amazing one-off festival shows this year it’s beyond exciting to now be taking The Mutiny out on the road for our first ever tour, as guests of the inimitable Laurence Jones! To take our groovy bluesy sounds to the length and breadth of the UK is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time, so to go back and play in my hometown of Glasgow is the icing on this very funky cake!

“Unfortunately the changed scheduling means that we won’t be able to appear at Planet Rockstock; however the great folks at Planet Rock have offered to change us over to play at their Winter’s End festival. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Darren Redick, Jon Norman and the team there for all their help and support with the album and for playlisting both singles released so far.”


Matt Pearce & The Mutiny released their self-produced, smokin’ hot, debut album,’Gotta Get Home’ on 3rd May through Mutinear Records. Just a day later, it was #1 in the Amazon Best Selling Blues Albums and Hot New Releases charts, and has gone on to glean an impressive array of glowing reviews from the Blues and Rock press.


Maximum Volume described the album as ‘As if Prince is jamming with Bonamassa. One of the most confident, classy and promising blues debuts in ages.’


Think Stevie Ray Vaughan guesting with Gov’t Mule,” said Bluesdoodles in their 10/10 review, “and you are getting close to the excellence on display. If this album had been released by one of the ‘established’ blues giants, it would be lauded to the skies… and so it should be.”


As you’d expect, given the energy and musical talent invested in the project, Matt Pearce & the Mutiny’s first bold steps into the live arena have been a resounding success, with a string of festival appearances, such as a storming set at HRH Blues in April 2019, preceded by Winterstorm 2018 and The British Blues Invasion in Moscow (Nov 2018)

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
