We’re delighted to be bringing Beans on Toast back to Gorilla!

Beans on Toast – the prolific cult songwriter – is coming to a town near you. Climate emergency? Boris as PM? Rail-melting heat waves? A No Deal Brexit? Beans’ new album could only ever be called one thing: ‘The Inevitable Train Wreck’.

For now he’s holding his cards quite close to his chest, but he’s promised ‘a rock ’n’ roll album about our dying planet’. The new release from the Essex folk hero will find him searching for hope and change in what may be Earth’s darkest hour.

On track for a 25-date tour across the nation this winter, catch him playing songs from The Inevitable Train Wreck and his huge, well-loved back catalogue.

The Inevitable Train Wreck’ will be released on 1 December 2019.
