Many more dates are still to be officially announced but King Mob will play London's O2 Academy Islington on 28th March with some very special guests including Phil Manzanera, Glen Matlock, Wilko Johnson and Mick Ralphs.

At the end of last year brand new English beat combo, King Mob released their stunning debut album, 'Force 9'.
King Mob began life when vocalist Stephen W Parsons approached his old friend and ex-Sharks colleague Chris Spedding with the idea of forming a new band. Following a highly successful film and advertising career, Stephen had taken time out for a while and found himself DJ-ing at The Axe club on Hackney Road.
Every Friday and Saturday night from midnight until 6am, the joint jumped to Stephen's old school music in the form of Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Ike And Tina et al.
Realising that these pre-1977 sounds were going down a storm with the younger crowd, Stephen's passion for the sheer excitement and energy of R&B was re-ignited and happily Chris Spedding agreed to come on board to form a new combo of talented like-minded musicians from either side of the generation gap.
"King Mob came to rock the joint and raise the dead. We will continue to do so in 2012" (Stephen W Parsons)
