The Duke & The King First Tour


The Duke & The King (The Duke being Simone Felice of The Felice Brothers and The King being Robert Chicken Burke), will kick off a U.S. tour on August 1 in their Catskill Mountains home base, playing songs from their already-acclaimed debut Nothing Gold Can Stay (August 4 / Ramseur Records).

The band inspired raves on a recent U.K. tour, with the London Telegraph calling Simone Felice "the greatest singer-songwriter you've never heard," continuing, "I went to a gig last week as good as any I have ever seen, by a relatively unknown singer & songwriter (and performer) working at the very highest level of his art... It's a kind of cracked country soul thing, with a dash of psychedelia, and at the heart of it are Simone's songs which are, honestly, the best I have heard in a while... these songs are good enough to be sung by the whole world."

In related news, the band will tape an episode of NPR's World Cafe while on tour. Stay tuned for an air date.
