Rick Witter and the Dukes dates

Rick Witter and the Dukes
+ Red Sea
+ The Colonial Movement Company

Ex-Shed Seven front man Rick Witter is back with a brand new band. Shed Seven split in December 2003 after a career spanning 10 years that saw them achieve 15 consecutive top 40 hit singles including Going for Gold, Chasing Rainbows and Getting Better.  So expect some Shed Seven classics thrown in.

The Dukes also feature Rob Wilson on guitar, Stuart Fletcher (ex-Seahorses) on bass and Matt Lunn (ex-Colour of fire) on drums.

The new outfit, Rick Witter and the Dukes will be playing a mixture of new material and Shed Seven classics. The debut album called The Year of the Rat is due to be released in late February early March 2007.

The band are recording in Leeds with producer Will Jackson, whos worked with bands such as Embrace and The Music. They are laying down 15 or 16 songs, the pick of which will make it onto the album.
