Emo lovers delight starts on Saturday!

If you are a tad on the sensitive side, wear black rimmed glasses and like to sport a backpack, it’s almost certain that you’ll be interested in a tour that starts on Saturday.

Because Jimmy Eat World and The Promise Ring are to embark on a series of UK shows, with the latter celebrating the release of their new ‘Wood/Water’ album.

Emo lovers should get down to the following dates: (most of which I think are probably sold-out)

25-May Glasgow Barrowlands
26-May Manchester Academy
28-May Nottingham Rock City
29-May Birmingham Academy
1-June London Brixton Academy

The Promise Ring are also set to do a headlining show at The Garage in London on May 30.

Paul, otherwise known as Sav, is quite possibly the only member of the Punktastic team to actually have a proper job. But don't hold that against him. He's actually a proper journalist, (a reporter for a daily northern paper) and so adds a bit of credence to the team. Except you wouldn't think that by reading his reviews. Maybe somebody should tell him that it is quality and not quantity that counts! Sav actually ended up working for Punktastic after meeting Nick at university, and the pair bonded over all things punk rock. Another guitarist, he also "writes a lot of songs about relationships, and how mine went wrong." Oh, and he loves the Ataris, if you hadn't already noticed. In his spare time he worships at the church of Kris Roe... Other fave bands include: MxPx, New Found Glory, Blink 182, Weezer, Midtown, Reel Big Fish, The Get Up Kids, Alkaline Trio, NOFX, Green Day, Deftones, Lit and Silverchair to name but a few. Hobbies include, sleeping, drinking, eating fish and supporting Grimsby Town FC. But hey, somebody has to.
