Michael Lee Firkins has announced a 22 date European tour this Spring in support of his new studio release Knock On Wood. Accompanied by Barend Courbois on bass and Chris Siebken on drums, the trio will be playing in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands and UK. See a full list below.

For a glimpse of what to expect, fans can watch clips of Michael’s unique sound of here:




Michael will be releasing a new blues rock CD EP entitled Knock on Wood which the guitarist describes as “swampadelic classic Rock and Roll!”. Knock on Wood will only available for sale at the live shows as a limited-edition CD and won’t be offered on digital platforms such as iTunes or Spotify.

“The goal of this tour like most tours is simply – to progress as musicians”, explains Michael“I don’t know a better way to progress as a musician then to play a bunch of dates with your band mates in Europe. It’s a careful balance between making sure you’re moving forward musically (which is the main point) versus knowing that you’re playing a lot of new places that haven’t seen you play any of your songs before! So that song that you feel might be overplayed is also brand new to somebody else. I will sign each copy of Knock On Wood for you and I can’t wait for you to hear it! See you out there!”
