Wille and The Bandits single - WILL WE EVER - released taken from the new album “When The World Stood Still” release their fifth studio album on January 28, 2022

Bluesdoodles thoughts: While we wait for the release of the forthcoming album. The new lineup will never dampen the rawness of Wille lap steel that opens this lament… The despair as the band play and question if they will ever sing live in front of an audience. Will life be ever the same is the refrain. This is music that you want to hear live southern rock energy drives the melodic resonance forward as they weave in meditative eastern sound and harmony drenched in sorrowful yearnings. The video cinematography and stage setting is superb visual dialogue of the isolation of lock-down and the change in all our lives. The music does still play on thanks to the drive of the new-look Wille and the Bandits.

The new single “Will We Ever” is the first single taken from the new album “When The World Stood Still”  Cornwall-based roots-rock band Wille & The Bandits release their fifth studio album on January 28, 2022.

This is about an album that documents a time when the world stood stillrecorded in a place only accessible on the high tide, on the banks of the river Fowey; one of Britain’s most iconic recording studios that is coming to the end of an influential life. This could be the last album recorded at Sawmills, funded by the fans of a band considered one of the most exciting and successful independent acts in Europe,

It is no exaggeration to state that Sawmills Studio, with the artistry of John Cornfield, has produced some of the most ground-breaking albums of the last 30 years; Stone Roses’ Fools Gold, Oasis’ Definitely Maybe, Supergrass’ In It For The Money, Robert Plant’s The Fate of Nations, Muse’s Showbiz, and now Wille & The Bandits’ When the World Stood Still stands alongside as one of equal mastery.
