INGLORIOUS + City Of Thieves
Thursday 31 January 2019, 7:30pm - 11pm
"The future of rock and roll.” Planet Rock Radio - Paul Anthony.
Inglorious are five young men with a mutual love and respect of the classics of Hard Rock music, big guitar riffs, and soulful vocals. Their influences stem from iconic rock and roll shrine of Rock albums from the 1970s – many years before the band members were born.
The same albums that have inspired generations of musicians and performers are noticeably evident when you listen to the Inglorious debut album. This is the music they were born to play together - inspired by bands in the classic rock genre as diverse as Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Whitesnake, Bad Company, Aerosmith, the Rolling Stones, to name a few.
Dan Stevens is the new Inglorious guitarist and joins the band just less than two months before the release of their new and third album, 'Ride To Nowhere', and the start of their 2019 UK tour. Dan will partner Danny Dela Cruz in a brand new Inglorious dual axe attack with drummer Phil Beaver, inimitable frontman Nathan James and new bass player, renowned Brazilian session player Vinnie Colla, completing the line-up that will herald in a brand new era for the rising British stars. Colin Parkinson, Andreas Eriksson and Drew Lowe all left the band in October after recording 'Ride To Nowhere'. Dan joins a select group of world class players who have graduated from Metalworks, the legendary Metal classics covers band who have been playing in Camden, London every Sunday night for close to two decades now. Richie Faulkner was a regular Metalworker before getting the call from Judas Priest, as was Davey Rimmer who went on to join Uriah Heep, while Mark Cross played for Scorpions at the 2014 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, their biggest ever gig, and Gus Macricostas filled in for Tim Carter on Saxon's 2016 European tour. Dan, a regular Metalworks player for over six years, is also the nephew of former Iron Maiden guitarist Tony Parsons and he told MetalTalk: "I’ve been a fan of Inglorious since the band formed and good friends with Nathan for almost as long. With another good friend Danny Dela Cruz also on board, it makes this venture even more exciting for me. "I feel honoured to be welcomed into the Inglorious family and can't wait to get out there in Jan/Feb and prove what this new line-up can do!"
You can catch the new Inglorious line-up on 'Ride To Nowhere' release day, Friday 25th January, at Fopp in London's Covent Garden where the band will be signing copies of the new album and at a secret gig sponsored by MetalTalk. More details on this to follow. Signing sessions will also take place at Reading and Cardiff.
