Following the release of their debut album “Renegade” in March 2014, Toseland return with a new EP, “Hearts And Bones” and a full UK tour in April 2015.

The release of “Renegade” (which has sold almost 10,000 copies in the UK alone) and two years of constant touring – both pre and post release – headline shows, supports with the likes of Aerosmith, Status Quo, Little Angels and Reef and festival shows such as Download, Isle Of Wight, Carfest, Planet Rockstock and Silverstone Moto GP - has established Toseland as one of the most exciting new UK rock acts. “Renegade” spawned multiple radio hits – with four consecutive singles A listed at Planet Rock radio.

The “Hearts And Bones” EP features the self titled first single and another new song “The Closer I Get”. The EP also features a cover of The Teardrop Explodes classic ‘Reward’. The EP builds on Toseland’s sound - driving riffs overlaid with the powerful voice of James Toseland. The EP was again recorded with Toby Jepson producing (credits include The Answer, Saxon and The Virginmarys) and Steve Harris (Foo Fighters, U2) as engineer.

The “Hearts And Bones” EP will be available on CD, download and 10" vinyl with the exclusive pre order at from 9am GMT Wednesday 28th January 2015. Pledge preorders will get an exclusive acoustic version of “Renegade” album track and previous single “Just No Way” as an instant grat.

2014 saw Toseland develop as a powerful live act. The band remains the same core – James Toseland (vocals), Zurab Melua (Guitar), Ed Bramford (Guitar) and Roger Davis (bass). The band have recently welcomed new drummer Joe Yoshida.

If the name might seem familiar it is because Toseland are a band fronted by double world superbike champion James Toseland. Throughout his career as a motorcycle racer, music was been central to James life – so when James was forced to retire through injury a journey into music started. He does maintain ties with the racing world. To the extent that in late 2014 he was due to attempt to break the motorcycle land speed at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, United States. Unfortunately the attempt was delayed due to adverse weather and surface conditions – but is now scheduled to happen in late 2015. The streamliner James will ride is powered by a Rolls Royce jet engine and is called 'The 52 Express' after Toseland's racing number.

Following the release of the EP the band will embark on a full UK tour. Dates are as follows

Fresh from the critical acclaim for debut EP “Life Is Beautiful”, Toseland are set to release a new single, “Renegade”, on the 13th October 2013

If the name might seem familiar it’s because Toseland is a band fronted by double world superbike champion James Toseland. Throughout his career as a motorbike racer, music has been central to James life – so much so that he performed live at BBC’s Sports Personality Of the Year. When James was forced to retire through injury a journey into music started…

James met up with Toby Jepson (Little Angels) in March 2012 after a friend had recommended they might work well together. Jepson had no idea of James’ past but they clicked - personally and musically. James had the bones of several songs and an idea of the sound he wanted – one of the first tracks to emerge being album track Kingdoms (which James had been playing with for a while). The writing process was quick and the pair soon laid down instrumentation at Vale Studios with Jepson producing (credits include The Answer, Saxon and The Virgin Marys) and Steve Harris (Foo Fighters, U2) as engineer. James plays all the piano on the album – including forthcoming single “Renegade”. Vocals were recorded in five days at Jepson’s studio in Scarborough

James put together a band including friend and guitar prodigy Zurab Melua (Guitars), Rabea Massaad (Guitars), Dave Hollingworth (Bass) and William Stokes (Drums) and took the material live. To have something available for punters to buy they put together an EP. With no push, as such, the lead track was picked up by Planet Rock radio and A listed. The word was out…

New single “Renegade” is Toseland’s first single proper – driving rhythms and the intricate guitars of Zurab Melua overlaid by the unique and powerful vocals of James Toseland.

Toseland are proving themselves a powerful live act – in addition to a series of headline shows they have supported The Darkness, Little Angels and appeared at Download Festival and Goodwood Festival Of Speed. The band has just been announced as main support for Reef’s 20th Anniversary tour amongst other dates. Latest dates are below:

Wed 28th Aug 2013 St Albans, The Horn headline show £5 adv
Sat 31st Aug Silverstone, Moto GP qualifying headline show
Thurs 14th Nov Bristol O2 Academy (supporting Reef 20th Anniversary tour)
Fri 15th Nov Glasgow O2 ABC (supporting Reef 20th Anniversary tour)
Sat 16th Nov Birmingham Institute (supporting Reef 20th Anniversary tour)
Mon 18th Nov Manchester Ritz (supporting Reef 20th Anniversary tour)
Tues 19th Nov Truro Hall For Cornwall (supporting Reef 20th Anniversary tour)
Wed 20th Nov London Koko (supporting Reef 20th Anniversary tour)
Fri 6th Dec Planet Rockstock Festival

Tickets are available through all usual outlets. Full details on the GIGS page.

James Toseland says, “I am so excited to actually release my first single from the album. It has been an amazing journey writing with Toby and being able to perform my songs live around the country and get the feedback we have received from the gigs. I'm really looking forward to the music being out there so everyone can connect to the songs.” Toselands debut album is set for release in early 2014.

Toseland have just been confirmed to be playing the 2013 Hertz MotoGP British Grand Prix at Silverstone on Saturday 31st August!!
