KING KING – EXILE & GRACE October 2017 UK TourForthcoming Album Exile & Grace was recorded at Superfly Studios, the quartet’s first album of new material since 2015’s multi-award winning “Reaching For The Light features the upcoming single “(She Don’t) Give Me No Lovin’”.
The new single was mixed by Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters, Feeder and Therapy) and is released on Friday 23rd June.

Says King King’s frontman and guitarist, Alan Nimmo, “Exile & Grace definitely has a rockier feel and sound to it. We are following our influences from the Classic Rock genre, Bad Company, Whitesnake and Thunder. We really set out to challenge ourselves with this album. We’ve stepped up the quality of songwriting and pushed ourselves physically in both performance and delivery!”

King King’s 2011 debut album “Take My Hand” was crowned Blues Album of the month in Classic Rock. Following this success, King King’s next album Standing in The Shadows was the highlight of Classic Rock Blues magazine’s Top 50 Albums of 2013. It’s no surprise then that King King won Best Album and Best Band at the 2012 and the 2014 British Blues Awards.

2015 saw the band fly even higher with the release of their “Reaching For The Light” album. King King were nominated for Best New Band at Classic Rock’s prestigious Roll of Honour and inducted into the British Blues Awards Hall of Fame for three consecutive Band wins.

King King have played in all corners of the globe. From the Mahindra Festival in Mumbai, India, to Ottawa Bluesfest in Canada, and numerous festivals throughout the whole of Europe. One of the highlights of 2016 was a UK arena tour with the mighty Thunder, which included playing to over 10,000 people at Wembley Arena and a sell-out headline show on home turf in Glasgow.

Their headlining tour in 2017 took them to mainland Europe and the UK. The band are back with a vengeance in October 2017 to perform songs from their new album “Exile & Grace.”
King King are widely recognised as the UK’s hottest rock blues band, the band continue to push the envelope by performing unforgettable live shows with first class musicianship.

 

King King live shows are a not to be missed event – this is what Bluesdoodles has said:- 

Artrix, Bromsgrove – Reaching For the Light, Bluesdoodles said ..album of platinum proportions…..  Tonight we heard tracks that prove a studio album sounds even better when the music is live and you can see, feel and hear up close and personal. King King the quartet that has a cascade of sounds with layers of tonal textures ……….with the sparkling vocals of Alan, he can whip up a frenzy, make you cry, laugh and definitely makes you want to get up and dance it is the infection that is King King live.

The Globe, Cardiff – Crazy, yes, the room went crazy with this perennial favourite. Then far too soon it was time for an encore Let Love In and another opportunity for Choir Globe to get involved.

City Hall, Salisbury – This is a night many will talk about do you remember when South African Dan Patlansky and then the mighty King King took Salisbury by a Blues storm. Yes, King King Reaching Spiraling Heights in Salisbury tonight.

NEW ALBUM – Revolution Come… Revolution Go
Out June 9 on Spinefarm Records

 

 

LISTEN TO THE NEW COMPOSITION
‘DREAMS & SONGS’

“[Gov’t Mule‘s] songs stomp and wail with unmistakable energy and heft” – NPR

“Warren Haynes is a meaty and masterful slide player, as well as a soulful singer and songwriter” – Rolling Stone

“A band heavy enough to be James Hetfield’s favourite; grungy, gritty and bluesy enough to earn the praises of ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons; and swirly enough to speak loud and clear to the Phishheads who flock to their shows to twirl the night away” 
– Guitar World

Gov’t Mule On Tour plus New Album, Revolution Come… Revolution Go, and the visit to Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales we all get a chance to hear the new music live!.  Following the announcement of their eagerly anticipated 10th studio album, American rock band Gov’t Mule have confirmed their return to the UK in October this year.The band will be heading to Ireland to play a show in Dublin before coming to the UK for four dates in Edinburgh, Manchester, Cardiff and London.

Oct 22nd –  Academy, Dublin, IE | Tickets
Oct 24th – Queens Hall, Edinburgh, UK | Tickets
Oct 26th – Ritz, Manchester, UK | Tickets
Oct 27th – Tramshed, Cardiff, UK | Tickets
Oct 28th – London Bluesfest, London, UK

The band first return to the road at Summerstage in New York’s Central Park and have dates booked through the summer in North America and Europe, with hopes of also heading to Japan, Australia and other territories to promote the upcoming album Revolution Come… Revolution Go. After celebrating 20 years and then taking a few years to work on other projects, the album is “the new chapter opening up for the band”, according to founder Warren Haynes. It’s due for release June 9th via Spinefarm Records. You can pre-order the album here.

The 12-song set, Gov’t Mule‘s 10th studio outing, was recorded primarily with long-time collaborator Gordie Johnson (Big Sugar) in Austin, Texas, but the musicians also worked on a pair of tracks with Don Was, with whom Haynes recently toured as part of the recent The Last Waltz 40th anniversary tour.

The record features the song ‘Dreams & Songs’, which Haynes deems autobiographical, reflecting on a career that started professionally with David Allan Coe’s band in 1980 and has gone through the Dickey Betts Band, the Allman Brothers Band, the Dead, Phil Lesh & Friends and more.

“It’s about looking back at your life and family and changes,” Haynes explains, “and the general message is you never go back home — not in the literal sense of the word, but things have a way of growing in their own directions, and you wake up one day and look at everything you’ve been through and think, ‘Wow, how did I get here?’ It’s a journey and you look back on it. I’m very grateful for the opportunities that I’ve had, but it’s been a wild ride and in some ways has gone so much quicker than I would ever expect. Thankfully, I’m still going strong and my career’s as good as it’s ever been. I’m thankful for that.”

Following their recent sell-out UK tour supporting King King, and their Planet Rock Roadstars UK tour with Broken Witt Rebels, and the recent announcement of their October 2017 tour with The Kentucky HeadhuntersBad Touch are pleased to announce they’ll be undertaking a headline tour in November with special guest Mollie Marriott. The tour is extensive as the visit all points on the compass, North & South  plus West & Eest.

“We’re excited to be taking to the road in November with Mollie,” says Bad Touch’s lead singer, Stevie Westwood. “Not only is she only a great vocalist in her own right, but she’s also the daughter of the legendary guitarist and singer Steve Marriott (Small Faces, Humble Pie). She’s part of rock royalty. It will be great to have Mollie touring with us. She’s got a killer voice. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

 

Bad Touch Supporting The Kentucky HeadhuntersBad Touch – the 5-piece rock band from Norfolk recently released their second studio album “Truth Be Told.  The album features the single“99%” remixed for radio by the legendary Rolling Stones engineer and co-producer, Chris Kimsey. The album celebrates classic rock with Southern boogie influences, with heavy guitar riffs and an iron-clad, tight rhythm section, in the great tradition of Black Crowes, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Led Zeppelin. We loved the album and the boys are even better live Bluesdoodles said “This is definitely a classic rock with the heat of the south, with finger-licking good guitar and tasty spicy vocals that make this album destined to excite the listener.” Read more HERE

Mollie Marriott, daughter of former Small Faces and Humble Pie singer/guitarist Steve Marriott and step-daughter to singer Joe Brown has spent her music career in the wings, having worked mostly as a backing singer with numerous artists including Oasis and Joe Brown.

Mollie’s sassy soulful blues vocals are full of classic influences. She can find a raw emotional edge that the best soul and rock singers have – at times rootsy and upscale through to modest and classy with a sustained relaxed feel.

The concerts will take place in Leeds Town Hall (Monday 30th October), The Forum, Bath (Wednesday 1st November) and Coventry Cathedral (Friday 3rd November).

 

Sultry blues, jazzy influences, rocking tunes and touching ballads; Beth Hart does it all!

Bluesdoodles said:-

Walking, Talking Singing Beth Hart Wins Colston Hall Hearts –  Tonight we were enchanted under the spell of Beth’s aural seduction her vocals purred, growled and beseeched as she filled the hall with warmth, sadness and hope.
Beth Hart tonight delivered more than a song, more than a show it was open, heart-rending connecting to us on an individual level. Tonight was music therapy for everyone.

Other plaudits include:-

“Beth Hart has a blues-rock voice so ballsy, it could pin you to the wall.”  The Times
“Beth Hart is a phenomenon.” Rockshot
“With Beth Hart, you get a versatile, genre-defying powerhouse of a vocalist and one of the great female singers of our time.” – National Rock Review

 Leeds, Town Hall                             Monday 30 October
Bath, The Forum                              Wednesday 1 November
Coventry, Cathedral                       Friday 3 November

 

Beth’s first solo gig at London’s Union Chapel (subsequently voted by fans as the venue’s gig of the year). “It was the most terrifying experience of my entire life,” she admits. “I got up there and I was so frickin’ scared. But then, halfway through the show, I just started to enjoy it. By the end, I felt so connected to the audience, and I really felt like they did that show with me. It was like we were all the band.” Her current acclaimed album, Fire On The Floor is sure to build on her breakneck momentum. The record gave her an emotional release following the bitter-sweet sessions for Better Than Home. Fire On The Floor is the album that Beth Hart needed to make. Likewise, it’s a record that you need to hear. “I’m so pleased with it,” she concludes. “I recently had to organise the sequence of the record, and while I was doing that, I was thinking to myself, ‘Y’know, this is pretty frickin’ good…!’” Everyone at Bluesdoodles thought the album was super – here is what we wrote follow the link HERE Bluesdoodles album of 2016 – Fire On The Floor.

Erja, always entertains and Bluesdoodles loves to having the opportunity to catch up with the sparkling sapphire Blues from Erja; at festivalsin conversation or recorded music.

The set from Erja at HRH Blues in Sheffield this Easter was a highlight of the festival “High class set from the renowned queen of the blues slide guitar. In the set is Black Ocean for me a highlight and favourite on the album now a live favourite as prog meets blues under the charms and skills of Erja.  We joined her on the rocking Chair, sang along with Stolen hearts. Then the trained steamed up the hill with her interpretation of Tina Turner’s Steamy windows. This was blues that sparkled as Erja smiled, played and won our hearts.”

Pick of the Albums Reviewed - 2016: July - Sept 2016Joanne Shaw Taylor’s Wild 

We said: There is a ferocity in the delivery that makes this an album where you want to hear the music live, the tempo and a sense of purpose that has a wildness in its sense of freedom. Joanne Shaw Taylor’s mighty potential has been unleashed and set free resulting in a ride of musical delights that is compelling and Wild.

Dan Patlansky In Conversation Touring 2017 and Beyond

Dan Patlansky’s Introvertigo

We said:  Introvertigo with its carefully crafted lyrics that blend urbane wit and honest observation, this is blues pertinent to today’s lifestyles, not so much whiskey and women more the corruption of power and social interaction. Ten tracks there are no fillers

Our full review can be found HERE

In the studio they are outstanding, live they take Blues-Rock to another level the shows are going to be a sparkling manipulation of the guitar. Joanne Shaw Taylor’s special guest  according to Music News “On record Dan Patlansky is quite superb but on stage, with a capacity crowd in his pocket from the off, he takes it to another level.”

Entering The World of Classic Rock Inglorious II

Entering The World of Classic Rock Inglorious II

Entering The World of Classic Rock Inglorious II

 

When Nathan James stormed onto the stage at Planet Rockstock 2015 with Inglorious eighteen months ago the potential for something huge, replicating the rock bands of the past was written in the stars, as reflected in the crystal ball on the cover of their first self-titled album. From that point they have grown into the band they promised to be. The second album is always difficult. Not for Inglorious they didn’t waste time and effort on a title – it is simply Inglorious II. That is the only simply thing.

With a dozen original numbers written by the whole band the feeling of musicians working together creating an organic living musical identity from first to the last chords is evident. This is all underpinned by this studio album having the fluidity, driving energy of a live sound. Being on the road, receiving audience reactions have shaped and formed the sound as they recorded as they play live, with raw energy and the building of tones from the instruments and not trickery.  With the mixing done by  Kevin Shirley  the album has a the stamp of Classic Rock, not trapped in the past but as a sounding board for music you want to rock to.
The band wrote the whole album with no guest writers this time, they said “It came together very organically after spending time touring together and felt great. We knew we were making an album this time too! We focused on getting our sounds just right so we could get into the studio and out in the least time poss.”

The opening chords are full of controlled restraint, the feel of acoustic, building the suspense we have all been feeling since announcement date 12th May for the release of the album on Frontiers Records. The crash of cymbals the melodic howl of Nathan as we are off on an Inglorious rush of melodic rock, play it often and play it loud Nathan may sing I Don’t Need Your Loving! BUT! We need your heady rock fueled energy it is fresh, modern, created for the twenty-first century with a quality that is firmly stepping back in time.

Third track in and you know that this is an album that will perform superbly live, and in the meantime will stay on repeat. Tell Me Why; demonstrates that Nathan has the freedom to perform those toe curling with delight vocals because of the band. The four musicians throughout provide more than a solid platform they give the sound shape and form for the lyrics and vocals to curl round, whether in anger, love or for the pure joy of singing.  The drumming from Phil Beaver is rhythmically strong as we Read All About It and Andreas’ guitar work has a sting in its tail.  As the groove changes with Change Is Coming and its deep bass line from Colin Patterson. Inglorious are a band connected through the music they love to play.

The blistering guitar opening of No Good For You, they may sing and play like that every day for me and will definitely be good for lovers of rock. As the album reaches its finale, we have time to draw our breath, reset our energy levels with Faraway, simple, quieter, a controlled vocal delivery from Nathan full of delicate intricacies. Faraway is a beguiling track. Then the grand closing number with High Class Woman. High class certainly describes the album.

Do not expect surprises, this is a rock album and they deliver.  As ever Inglorious are being compared and contrasted to bands and singers of the past. For me that is a useful starting point, the reality is Nathan James and Inglorious on the second recorded offering are proving they are not pale imitations. The sound is Inglorious’ own, the sound is glorious.

Before, making albums Nathan thought to himself, “Why are those classic albums so awesome?” He realised it was because “the musicians were recording in an organic way; they could track it live and capture amazing energy.” He certainly has lived up to his observations on the whirlwind raw and tamed Inglorious II. Joining the charismatic front man and vocalist Nathan James are lead guitarist Andreas Eriksson, bassist Colin Parkinson, rhythm guitarist Wil Taylor, and drummer Phil Beaver.  With the departure of Wil from the band it is welcoming back former guitarist Drew Lowe.

Inglorious II is a mighty fine rock album with all the necessary components, but definitely not playing rock by numbers. This is modern rock with attitude, raw and at times a little bit dangerous. They want to thrill you through music and inglorious ii definitely thrills.
