With only days to go until the start of Beady Eye's US debut US Tour, David Baldwin from support band The Dig talks to us about opening up at sold out shows in Chicago, New York and Philadelphia on their debut US tour
The Dig are made up of David Baldwin, Emile Mosseri, Erick Eiser and Jamie Alegre. Emile and David grew up together an hour north of New York City and have been playing in bands since they were 11 years old. Erick is from Southern California and Jamie from Cambridge, Ontario. They formed the band in New York a few years ago.
How did the Beady Eye gigs come about? What should fans expect?
Our management got us three gigs supporting them in the US. We're really excited to play with them. Fans can expect an energetic performance. We just hope to pick up some new fans and to have fun.
Have you heard Different Gear, Still Speeding? If so, what are your thoughts?
We really like the new album a lot, and we're psyched to hear the songs live.
Were you fans of Oasis? If so, when did you first hear them? What are your favourite tracks?
We're all big fans of Oasis. Emile's first concert was Oasis at Jones Beach in 1996 when he was 11 years old. 'Don't Look Back in Anger' and 'Live Forever' are a few band favourites.
What are your plans for the rest of the year? Will you be playing dates anywhere outside the US?
We don't have any dates outside the US at the moment but we hope to make it over to the UK sometime this year or early in the new year. We plan to finish our new record and continue touring and writing tunes.
June 17th - Chicago - Schubas
June 24th - New York City - The Studio at Webster Hall
July 7th - Boston - TT The Bears
