The tour follows another busy summer for Beans On Toast who, as well as being confirmed for loads of summer festivals including Glastonbury and Secret Garden Party - and as support for friend and label mate Frank Turner in North America – he will be playing live and compering at Mumford & Son's Gentlemen Of The Road festival in Lewes on the 19th & 20th of July. Playing alongside Vampire Weekend, The Vaccines, British Sea Power and Mumford & Son's themselves as well as compering the entire festival perfectly highlights Bean’s versatile talents – a modern one-man all-round entertainer.

You can watch the video here:
It’s lifted from Beans On Toast's fourth studio album 'Fishing For A Thank You' – which came out December 2012. A career defining record that, in his own amiable style, deals with such matters as protests, love, drugs, religion, Wetherspoons pubs and angry birds with his perfected, witty social commentary. Bolstered by an accordion and a backing brass section, this is Beans' most complete and mature sounding record.  Twitter - @beanstoast
