Ginger Sellout

(antiMusic) A quick update about Wildhearts' frontman Ginger's solo band hitting the US. Ginger and Sonic Circus' one-off New York date has sold out so Don Hill's decided to make it a two-off. They will headline the famed NYC club on April 4th and now 5th. Better hurry and get tickets before that one sells out as well.

Ginger and co have a string of dates across the pond in the UK next week leading up to the NYC shows and the band has been booked to headline the third stage at the Download festival on June 9th.

We had the chance to speak with Ginger a little bit about the band and the upcoming shows. "The band is my new dream solo project," Ginger told antiMusic via email. "My favourite players all on one stage. Jase Edwards (ex-Wolfsbane) who mixed and mastered my new solo album, is on guitar and harmony vocals, Jon Poole (SilverGinger 5, The Wildhearts, Cardiacs) is on bass and harmony vocals, Steve Spring (The Mission) is on drums, although we hope to feature Texan boy Joel Loper, who played drums on the album, we have female backing singers, percussion and piano/keyboards to make the sound even more huge."

Ginger looks forward to returning to New York City, "I love NYC. There's even a song on the new album, 'Mother City', originally written for a Village Voice charity record for 9/11, all about my love for this magnificent city," Ginger said.

"This is as excited as I could possibly get with my trousers on." Tickets for the second show just went on sale at the official Don Hill's website (www.donhills.com).
