Toploader mark new release with live dates


Eastbourne’s chart-topping band Toploader celebrate the release of their latest single with a series of live dates including Worthing’s Pavilion Theatre on February 21.

The band returned to music in 2011, after an eight-year hiatus, with their third studio album Only Human produced by Danton Supple who is known for his work with Coldplay and Morrissey.

It included the singles Never Stop Wondering, A Balance To All Things and She Said, which led lead singer Joseph Washbourn to compete in ITV’s Popstar to Operastar in which he reached the semi-finals.

Toploader originally became known for their cover of ’70s hit Dancing in the Moonlight, part of their first album Onka’s Big Moka, which debuted at number five in the UK charts in 2000. The band went on to perform with Coldplay, Muse, Paul Weller and Robbie Williams across the UK before supporting Bon Jovi on their Crush tour.

Toploader’s forthcoming single, Turn It Around, was co-written with Ivor Novello Songwriter Of The Year Eg White.

The band will be supported by singer/songwriter Rachel Hawker before Worthing-based six-piece The Daunts take to the stage.
