Brand new album – ‘Fishing For A Thank You’ – out 1st December 2012
Main support on Dog Is Dead tour plus own UK headline tour
As is customary every year, Beans On Toast will release his brand new album - ‘Fishing For A Thank You’ - on his birthday 1st December 2012 through Xtra Mile Recordings.
For this, his fourth studio album, Beans has written a career defining record that, in his own amiable style, deals with such matters as protests, love, drugs, religion, Wetherspoons pubs and angry birds with his perfected witty social commentary. Bolstered by an accordion and a backing brass section this is Beans’ most complete and mature sounding record.
The album release will be preceded by the single ‘Papa Jay’ – a heart-warming ode to growing old and contemplating parenthood.

It’s been a very busy year for Beans On Toast:
• Supported Frank Turner at his sold out Wembley Arena show back in April.
• Spent the summer packing out tents at a string of summer festivals, including Blissfields, Secret Garden Party, Kendall Calling, Bestival and more.
• Headlined his own incredible show at London’s Scala in September which was recorded for a live album to be released next year.
