Wet Wet Wet announced in late 2018 that Kevin Simm (winner of ‘The Voice UK’ and former member of Liberty X) had joined as the band’s lead vocalist. He was warmly welcomed by fans and the band hit the road for an extensive series of tour dates and festival appearances throughout 2019.
Whilst in ‘lockdown’ during 2020/21 Wet Wet Wet wrote and recorded a brand new album called ‘The Journey’, their seventh LP. On release in November 2021 the self-recorded, produced and released album entered the Official UK Independent Album Chart Top 10.
2022 will see the band return with a series of headline slots at numerous festivals and events.
