The supergroup featuring members of The Stranglers, The Damned, Ruts DC and Johnny Moped are sharing the details of the upcoming tour and debut album.
The band was formed during the lockdown by Baz Warne (The Stranglers), Paul Gray (The Damned), Leigh Heggarty (Ruts DC) and Marty Love (Johnny Moped).
Paul Gray explains: “It’s funny how these things turn out, we had no idea where this project might take us; an idea born out of frustration became a full band within 24 hours, words and riffs and much tuneage followed, beers and jolly banter ensued when we finally met up to mix the results, a record company said “yes please!” and now we find ourselves taking the results off on tour!” While on tour, Wingmen will be joined by Rob Coombes from Supergrass on keyboards.
The eponymous album by Wingmen will be released on 27 January 2023 via Cadiz Music.
The tour starts on 18 January at Colchester Arts Centre. More information and other dates are on the official site of Wingmen.
