The Humans – Are Gonna Walk All Over You: Live Dates

October 7th, 2009

THE HUMANS, Toyah Willcox’s remarkable new band, will perform a trio of headline UK dates next year.

The band – featuring Toyah Willcox, Bill Rieflin (REM) and Chris Wong with a special guest appearance from the legendary Robert Fripp, will perform at Leamington Spa Assembly on 22 February, Cambridge Junction on 23 February and The Scala, London on Wednesday 24 February.

The shows are the first time in 20 years that Toyah has shared a UK stage with her husband Robert Fripp. The last time was when their 1989 band, Sunday All Over The World, played a handful of UK dates.

THE HUMANS comprise a very different musical direction for Toyah, not surprising given the band line-up with their own individual musical backgrounds. Their first single “These Boots Are Made For Walkin” has just been released along with their debut album “We Are The Humans”. Both the album and single are available for digital download through iTunes, Amazon, Play.com, HMV, Tesco and all good digital download stores. A new physical CD edition of the album will be available from mid-October from www.remembertheeighties.com
