For nearly three decades fans of the Thompson Twins have been waiting for more live performances from one of the most iconic bands of the eighties. Now The Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey, with a new band, will be touring and performing the Thompson Twins hits. The Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey features Tom Bailey on vocals, keyboards, guitar, harmonica and percussion. His all-female band feature Charlotte Raven on vocals and keyboards, Amanda Kramer (The Psychedelic Furs/Information Society) on vocals and keyboards and Paulina Szczepaniak on electronic drums.

Much to TT fans delight, Bailey began writing contemporary songs again in 2016 and will be releasing a new album in 2018. The first track ‘Come So Far’ was released as a single in June 2016. Written from the perspective of a refugee in the current crisis the song is a moving portrayal of a refugee abandoning their home and moving in to the unknown. “I know where I’ve come from…don’t know where I go”. The single was released through Cooking Vinyl and all proceeds went to refugee charity Médicins Sans Frontières. A special numbered and signed 7” vinyl version of the single was also released through Pledge Music.

The music and videos of the Thompson Twins became a fixture on hit radio and music television throughout the world in the eighties. They were the soundtrack of our lives. Tom Bailey is at last performing those songs again that meant so much to so many. (Source: Venue)
