The critically acclaimed album reached #4 in the UK and was the band’s first album to enter the US charts. Succeeding 'All Mod Cons', the album became a commercial success, earning them their first top ten hit single - 'The Eton Rifles'.
“We can’t wait to perform the whole of ‘Setting Sons’ live” says vocalist and guitarist Russell Hastings. “The album has been noted as another one of The Jam’s best albums along with ‘All Mod Cons’. It seems that even the obscure album tracks like ‘Little Boy Soldiers’ and ‘Thick As Thieves’ are as popular when we play them live as the hit singles.” says Hastings.
Special guests on the 'Setting Sons' tour are The Vapors UK who were the original support act on the 1979 'Setting Sons' tour. The Vapors had three chart hits "Turning Japanese", "News At Ten" and "Jimmie Jones" and released two albums before they split in 1982.
