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:
