Wingmen, a new ‘supergroup’ featuring members of The Stranglers, The Damned, Ruts DC and Johnny Moped have announced a UK tour for January to tie in with the release of their self-titled debut album.

Formed out of pandemic isolation boredom and frustration, the group features The Stranglers frontman Baz Warne, guitarist Leigh Heggarty from Ruts DC, The Damned bassist Paul Gray and Johnny Moped drummer Marty Love, who also plays with Gray and The Damned’s Captain Sensible in The Sensible Gray Cells. Wingmen’s 10 track debut album is set for release on January 27 via Cadiz Music, and their UK tour will kick off on January 18 at Colchester Arts Centre.

“I called Paul and suggested to him that we should have a go at a new project after enjoying working together on The Sensible Gray Cells record and if so, did he have anyone in mind,” explains drummer Marty on how Wingmen came to be. “And we both wanted to work with Leigh, and he was interested in the idea. I asked Leigh if he knew any vocalists that may fancy it and he said Baz Warne could be worth a call, and to my surprise Baz said yes! So, then there were four. “
