Praise for last album “Welcome To The World”

‘After eight years of scintillating live shows and two acclaimed studio albums, Lancashire feel-good rockers Massive Wagons are finally getting the widespread plaudits and exposure they truly deserve’ Planet Rock

 ‘There is a diversity to the sounds that makes it more than just riff-hook and chorus fare’ Classic Rock

‘They are Volbeat, Airbourne, Rise Against and Guns n’ Roses – a very entertaining experience’ Metal Hammer

UK five-piece anthemic rock act Massive Wagons are thrilled to announce the worldwide release of their fourth album “Full Nelson” on August 10th, via Earache Records (The Temperance Movement, Blackberry Smoke, Rival Sons).

Led by the charismatic frontman Baz Mills, Massive Wagons forthcoming record “Full Nelson” showcases the evolution of the band’s song writing both sonically and lyrically. From the rock driven opener “Under No Illusion” to the bluesy feel of “Sunshine Smile”, from the slower, passionate and heart-felt “Northern Boy” to the heavier “Robot (Trust In Me)”, this is an album of crafted songs and intense performance. “Robot (Trust In Me)” was also produced by Mike Exeter (Black Sabbath, Judas Priest).

Massive Wagons started 2018 with multiple sold out headline shows, including The Borderline in London. The band will continue to tour throughout the UK and Europe in 2018, and already have performances confirmed at Download Festival, Camden Rocks, Steelhouse, Boomtown and a sold out special guest show with Blackberry Smoke – with more to follow.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
