Pop band Lawson embarks on a SEA mini-tour


Lawson band

Current pop rock London-based sensation Lawson is coming to Southeast Asia to present their album Chapman Square on a promo tour.

Since the release of their debut single ‘When She Was Mine’ back in May, Lawson have sold over 300,000 singles and are without doubt one of the biggest breakthrough pop acts of 2013. They’ve announced ‘Learn To Love Again’ as the third single taken from their Top 5 debut album Chapman Square. Bass player Ryan Fletcher says: “We’re really excited to release Learn To Love Again. It’s a bit different to previous singles & it’s one we love performing live. It’s got our usual guitars and drums sound but with a dance element – we hope that it will appeal to everyone.”

“It shall be a dream come true to do a couple of shows there. We want to go to as many places as we can,” said 22-year old lead guitarist Joel Peat.

Lawson, its name paying tribute to a real-life doctor who saved the life of their vocalist Andy Brown from death scare, scored hit singles recently, namely, ‘When She Was Mine’ (which immediately became high-rated on YouTube in just a week after being posted) ‘Taking Over Me’, and ‘Standing In The Dark’. Completing the band roster are bassist Ryan Fletcher, who has been jamming with Joel Peat since they were 14, and drummer Adam Pitts.   

“I think the band is working under a perfect system where we got individual roles to fulfill and we’re not bothered by it. It’s cool that Andy is our singer-songwriter and he is the eldest,” stated Fletcher.

Prepare yourself to catch the lads in your respective cities while watching ‘Learn To Love Again’ performed live at London’s Koko!
