Getting into shape for his upcoming UK tour – Beans On Toast – today releases a playful new single: “The Unlikely Gymnast”. This autumn, complete with the full backing of a full live band, Beans on Toast will also be hitting the road once more for the 15-date ‘Double Trouble’ UK tour, where he will be sharing a stage with fellow Xtra Mile compadres Skinny Lister for a series of shows throughout November and December. The tour plays Cambridge’s Junction on 1st December.
Arriving on the eve of his biggest UK shows to date, the new track comes with an athletic new video and a short story to set the scene, as written by Beans himself.
As a 36-year old, self proclaimed ‘drunk-folk’ singer, vowing to “make gymnastics sexy again” is bold statement. Making that same vow to a family of professional gymnasts opens-up an entirely different can of worms….
“The Unlikely Gymnast” is a humorous be-careful-what-you-wish-for tale to rival the best of them; the true story of how one drunken promise, can set you on course of unexpected circumstances and soon have you eating your words.
