RNR MAGAZINE Beans on Toast will be heading to Grimsby’s Docks Academy this May.

This Spring the cult folk legend will be stopping off in Grimsby doing what he does best: singing songs, making friends, telling stories and putting the world to rights.


Part of a second leg of gigs in support of his acclaimed new album, Beans will be backed by the esteemable Jack Flanagan of Mystery Jets and Kitty Liv (of Kitty, Daisy and Lewis fame) as he brings the upbeat songs of ‘Survival of the Friendliest’ to Docks Academy on Thursday 5th May 2022.

Speaking about what to expect from the upcoming fixture, Beans says:


“I can't bloody wait for this run of dates, some of my all-time favourite venues on that list. I'll be joined on stage by the legends Jack Flanagan (Mystery Jets) and Kitty Liv (Kitty, Daisy and Lewis) in the new musical ensemble. Singing songs, making friends, telling stories and offering hope and light relief from this bizarre world. See you out there.”


Beans writes simple songs about complicated subjects and never fails to celebrate the beauty of human existence. Drawing from his huge and much loved back catalogue, his live shows are both inspiring and entertaining, a relaxed and fun affair that leaves you feeling like you’ve met up with an old friend, and you’re all the better for it.

Beans on Toast recently released the single “Humans”. A lilting, lullaby-like track described by Steve Lamacq on BBC6Music as "an injection of hope and community”; it finds the singer-songwriter pausing for tender reflection on humanity, nature and our very existence. It follows recent singles “Not Everybody Thinks We're Doomed” and “A Beautiful Place”, all of which can be found on his new album: ‘Survival of the Friendliest’. Produced by Blaine Harrison of Mystery Jets and recorded at Big Jelly Studios in Ramsgate, ‘Survival of the Friendliest’ is a record all about hope, positivity and camaraderie, that finds an artist celebrating the very best of human nature. Proving a big hit with fans at Beans’ recent December shows and with the critics, Louder Than War praised Beans’ latest effort as "the perfect antidote to re-energise us all", whereas RNR Magazine championed the record as “rather special…The lyrics shimmer with Beans’ trademark of truth and humour”.


The album features a host of friends & musicians including the spoken-word artist Dizraeli, acclaimed author Nick Hayes (on banjo), multi-talented gospel singer Sarah Telman (backing vocals, strings), Rosie Bristow of Holy Moly & The Crackers (accordion), Adriano Rossetti-Bonell (saxophone) and Graham Godfrey (drums), alongside contributions throughout from Mystery Jets’ Blaine Harrison and Jack Flanagan. With every fibre made with a little help from his friends, the cover art for the album is by London based painter Georgie Mason; whereas its videos have come courtesy of wildlife photographer and old school-friend: Curt Walsh. ‘Survival of the Friendliest’ is out now via his own BOT Music imprint. An album of friendship, humanity and creativity, it’s exactly what the world needs now. Catch Beans on Toast touring the record at some of the UK’s finest independent venues this Spring…
