Chuck Prophet and Mission Express have announced their first UK tour since 2017, which includes eleven dates kicking off at London’s The Garage in late May. The tour promotes their most recent album, ‘The Land That Time Forgot’, which came out on Yep Roc in 2020. This, his fourteenth album, comes after beating cancer and getting through the subsequent pandemic. The album was produced by Grammy-winning Matt Winegar and recorded in Old Soul Studios in upstate New York after being priced out of his hometown of San Francisco. ‘The Land That Time Forgot‘ includes singles’ Marathon‘ and ‘Nixonland‘, and ‘Best Shirt on’. Of the album, Prophet says, “just as much a 21st-century exorcism as it is Americana“. Martin Johnson had the privilege to catch up with him last year; you can read that interview here.

Chuck Prophet is considered a “Small Venue Hero” by Americana UK, but this tour sees him and his band performing in some of the UK’s finest giggeries.
