EURYTHMICS FOUNDER ENLISTS PANICS AS BACKING BAND
Dave Stewart founder of pop rock legends Eurythmics, has asked The Panics to be his backing band for his upcoming Australian tour with Stevie Nicks. “The Panics are a band that will go the whole distance,” he said.
Apparently endeared by the band’s latest record Rain On The Humming Wire, in a statement today Stewart said,“The Panics are a band that will go the whole distance. Jae [Laffer, frontman]‘s songs are thankfully eons away from the generic formula songwriting that we are being force-fed to listen to via TV and radio all over the world.
“The opening of Majesty sounds like an instant classic, drawing you in closer to hear the story from the singer’s lips, this is a band in full control of their destiny.”
Stewart, who along with his time with the Eurythmics has also had a strong solo career, written with Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Bono and is part of Mick Jagger’s new supergroup.
The Stewart/Nicks tour takes place November/December and The Panics will kick off their own headline tour mid September.
