Live Shows To Launch New Single

John Wean announce a series of live gigs to launch their new single 'New York Doesn't Love You' which is released on 19 March 2012 on The Dinky Record Company and was mixed by Grammy? winner Tom Lord-Alge. The single is based on a pretty damn modern true story. 'Boy sees girl from afar, boy stalks girl on Facebook, realises she's got a boyfriend already but, undaunted, moves his stalking over to another platform and is confronted by the Twitter name that inspired the single 'New York Doesn't Love You"'. Taking this as the signal to stop, boy logs off rapidly and writes a slamming guitar-pop track instead!

Hailed as "the best thing to come out of Uddingston since the Tunnock's Tea Cake" and as one of the "Tips For 2012" in the Scottish Sun, John Wean swagger into 2012 with all guns blazing and recently took part in Live Nation's Live Connection initiative.
