After a 2-year hiatus and following the release of his highly-acclaimed second album #LookingForTheWorld, Michael Armstrong returns to the stage and brings with him a fantastic new band.

Michael will be performing at The Water Rats, Grays Inn Road, London on Tuesday 2 July – a rare opportunity to see a master songwriter who has performed and recorded with the likes of Paul McCartney, Cliff Richard, Albert Lee, Steely Dan’s Elliot Randall and many, many more.

To coincide with the show, the song ‘Periscope’ is released from the current album.  Reviewing for Get Ready to ROCK! Jason Ritchie enthused: “a gloriously melodic ride drawing on many of rock and pop’s 60′s and 70′s giants, containing songs that will stand the test of time”.
