Brothers Yngve and Demian Wieland form the backbone of 'Yngve & The Innocent' a band which through various line-up changes has moved from Sligo on the west coast of Ireland to London where they've been based for the past 4 years. Averaging over 100 shows a year they have had a succession of breakthroughs including UK national airplay on BBC Radio 2 by non other than Steve Lemacq and playing two storming sets at the Official Arthurs Day Celebrations in Dublin in September. Their debut album 'The Sadness of Remembering' is due to be released this spring and will undoubtedly cement their place amongst the 'ones to watch' for 2012.
The release of the 2011 Single 'Draw A Line' saw then get favourable attention and reviews in printed publications such as Word Magazine, Artrocker and Hotpress and kicked off a hectic 6 months which saw the band tour Ireland 4 times not to mention countless U.K. shows and festival appearances and an eight date trip to Spain.
Recently joined by Canadian pianist Andrew LaCombe (previously in 'The Hunting Horns') and new bassist Charlie Webb, Yngve & The Innocent are readying themselves for a punishing schedule in 2012 which will see them tour in Germany for the first time in March with two more tours lined up there for August and November. Along with a number of festivals already confirmed for the Summer both in Ireland and the U.K. the road will again be home to this hard working band.
