News: Shoes and Socks Off is No More

Toby Hayes, ex-vocalist for Meet Me in St. Louis and current mastermind behind the solo project Shoes and Socks Off has decided to call it a day on SASO.

Shoes and Socks Off were a bizarre, minimalist and somewhat acoustic affair but none-the-less a brilliant project which we’ll be sad to see the end of. Check out CYF of SASO’s magnum opus Robin Hood Waiter Champion Have-Not:

SASO are releasing one last EP called As We Get Closer The Room Gets Smaller. It’ll feature 4 new songs and be a digital only, pay-what-you-like jobby.

SASO will also be going out on one final UK tour before Toby goes off to focus on alt-rockers Love Among the Mannequin and a new project entitled Bermuda Ern. The full list of SASO farewell shows are below:

15 – Southsea Festival

Mega Front-Man Tour with Someone Died ( (Alan Welsh/Tangled Hair/Colour)
16 – The Lamb – Devizes
17 – The Pav-Tav – Brighton
18 – The Grey Horse – Kingston
19 – Nation of Shopkeepers – Leeds
20 – The Bell – Manchester
21 – The Pilgrim – Liverpool
22 – The Chameleon Arts Café – Nottingham
24 – The Old Blue Last – London (with Ross Secondsmile)

See you at the Old Blue Last!
