Lead guitarist and co-founder of the legendary group The Kinks, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Dave Davies returns to the USA for a Spring 2019 tour, highlighting his contribution to The Kinks' legacy with his revolutionary guitar sound and unique writing style that changed rock n' roll.
Davies is touring in celebration of his new album Decade, a collection of unreleased songs recorded in the 1970's, which has garnered rave reviews from Rolling Stone,
Spin, Uncut, Consequence Of Sound and many more, including Billboard who wrote "Time and critical reappraisal has shone new light on Kinks cuts like “Love Me Till The Sun Shines,” “Strangers” and “Death of a Clown,” all written by the younger Davies. But Decade is an even clearer view of what he was capable of... [it's] like a greatest-hits album by a rock n' roll band that only exists in Davies’ imagination." Decade is currently out via Red River Entertainment/The Orchard and Green Amp Records.
