Honest man release day, Last Surrender video, tour dates

February 26th, 2016

Hi All,

Today marks the official release of Honest Man. A huge thanks to you all for the great responses to the tracks we’ve released so far. I’m excited for you to hear the whole thing. As you read this, it’s now available internationally from Apple iTunes and Music, plus my official store on vinyl, CD and digital. Beyond that, check for it wherever music is sold: Amazon for CD and Vinyl, Spotify, and hopefully your favourite local retailer too.

You may have seen a few of the videos I shot with The Mellotones at The Sonic Temple, but here is another instalment of this series as of today — watch ‘Last Surrender’ here:

Today is show number 10 of our 66 date tour. We’ve been having a blast playing the new songs for everybody. Big thanks to all of you who have made it out to give us a listen. The Bona Fide are really starting to cook and are blowing people away. It’s a real treat to have them up on the stage with me. We’ve still got lots of road to go. Check out the dates and come on out if ya can. You’ll be full of smiles.

See you on the road,
Matt & the Bona Fide
