Having wowed crowds all over the UK and Europe with his passionate and uplifting performances on the recent Revival Tour, The Loved Ones vocalist/guitarist Dave Hause stays this side of the Atlantic a little while longer to hit the road with good friends Alkaline Trio.
Playing all over the country as well as two dates in Germany – Hause’s army of followers is set to get even bigger!

Dates are as follows:

5 London Barfly
6 Lemon Grove, Exeter
7 Pyramid, Southsea
8 Manchester Academy 2
9 Leadmill, Sheffield
10 Solus, Cardiff
12 Kasbah, Coventry
13 Leeds Met Uni
14 Waterfront, Norwich
15 Electric Ballroom, London
17 Picturehouse, Edinburgh

The dates follow the release of Hause’s debut solo album ‘Resolutions’ that came out on Xtra Mile Recordings in October. Recorded, produced, engineered and mixed by Pete Steinkopf (of The Bouncing Souls). Hause and a group of friends and family he compiled, dubbed The Empty Bottles Band, Hause created a perfectly crafted rock album with no genre restrictions and limitations that showcases his talents for writing catchy songs together with influences from singer/songwriters such as Jenny Lewis and Conor Oberst.

Tracks such as the heartening ‘C’mon Kid’ and the somber ‘Melanin’ take on a new life with the help of Hause’s backing band, while fan favourite ‘Pray For Tucson’ is an acoustic number made even more beautiful with the assistance of a pedal steel guitar.

Since Hause started playing solo shows in 2009, he has shared the stage with a variety of artists such as Bob Mould, AFI, Frank Turner, Tim Barry (Avail), Jim Ward (At The Drive-In, Sparta), Tommy Stinson, Franz Nicolay, Chuck Ragan and Brian Fallon from Gaslight Anthem.
