Evans The Death announce tour, new track ‘Suitcase Jimmy’

They'll hit the road this July.
Evans The Death have announced a summer UK tour, alongside a new track taken from their forthcoming album ‘Vanilla’.

The band will hit the road this July, with shows in London, Brighton, Cardiff, Nottingham, Glasgow, Newcastle, Leeds, Chelmsford, Coventry and Hastings.

The reveal of the new run comes with a fresh track, ‘Suitcase Jimmy’. Speaking about the song, guitarist Dan Moss explains: “We owe the title to our friend Carolina – I was hanging out with her by the river one day and we saw this guy just strutting along with his suitcase, and she said “ah, it’s Suitcase Jimmy!” – so we had this character who had this little theme tune. Olly decided he was an aspiring actor who’d just arrived in New York, brimming with ambition. Daniel saw him as more of an egomaniacal, almost Patrick Bateman character, or some sort of spy, and his lyrics were more stream-of-consciousness. I wanted to make him very slightly more sympathetic, so he’s still a total yuppie but he does his recycling, he has some semblance of a conscience, a bit like Aziz Ansari’s character in Master of None. So he became all of those things.”
