“Grace and Aaron Bond return with an absolutely smoking follow-up, a spot-on cornucopia of dirty riffs and impassioned blues-rock power, with a keen ear for authentic instrumentation and atmosphere.” – Classic Rock
When Rivers Meet, comprised of husband and wife, Aaron, and Grace Bond, will perform six headline concerts in October at Cardiff Clwb Ifor Bach (Oct 13), Gloucester Guildhall (Oct 16), Huddersfield Parish (Oct 21), York Crescent (Oct 23), Liverpool Arts (Oct 29), and Milton Keynes Stables (Oct 30).
WRM will also perform three Planet Rock “Rocktober” shows with Kenny Wayne Shepherd and King King at Bristol O2 Academy (Oct 15), London O2 Shepherds Bush Empire (Oct 18), and Sheffield O2 Academy (Oct 22).
The tour announcement dovetails the February 25th release of He’ll Drive You Crazy – the band’s third single taken from their critically acclaimed sophomore album Saving Grace.
In 2021, When Rivers Meet were the first band to win four UK Blues Awards including Blues Band of the Year, Blues Album of the Year, Emerging Blues Artist of the Year, and Most Inspirational Online Performance of the Year. WRM also won Best New Band at Planet Rock’s awards The Rocks.
This year the band have received three nominations at the UK Blues Awards including Blues Album of the Year (Saving Grace), Blues Band of the Year, and Blues Vocalist of the Year (Grace Bond).
Saving Grace follows WRM’s critically acclaimed debut album We Fly Free that was released in November 2020, and their previous two EPs, The Uprising, and Innocence of Youth. The past two years have been a non-stop thrill-ride for WRM, who are comprised of Grace Bond (lead vocals, mandolin, violin) and Aaron Bond (guitar, vocals).
On their sophomore album Saving Grace, WRM have set out to produce a blues rock album with an upbeat, punchy, and exciting sound. The album is available from www.whenriversmeet.co.uk.
