Fresh from the critically acclaimed release of their debut album “Ghosts Of Yet To Come” and support to Steel Panther and Inglorious across the UK in January 2018, Wayward Sons are pleased to announce a full headline UK tour in April 2018. To coincide with the headline shows, Wayward Sons will be releasing a brand new single “Don’t Wanna Go”, taken from their debut album “Ghosts Of Yet To Come”.

Wayward Sons are also thrilled to announce they have been nominated for 3 Planet Rock “The Rocks” awards: Best British Album, Best British Single (Until The End), Best New Band. To vote you can follow the link: https://www.planetrock.com/on-air/wyatt-wendels/the-rocks-2018/

Wayward Sons is a UK guitar act made up of Toby Jepson (Vocals/Guitar), Sam Wood (Guitar), Nic Wastell (Bass), Dave Kemp (Keys) and Phil Martini (Drums). They have an impressive resume of groups they have previously worked with – Little Angels, Gun, Spear Of Destiny, Treason Kings and Chrome Molly to name a few – which is reassuring in terms of the band as players, but doesn’t really hint at their sound. Wayward Sons sound nothing like the sum of their parts. The music is hard rock but mixed with a vitality and energy – both musically and lyrically.

“Ghosts Of Yet To Come” is a hugely accomplished debut album – as might be expected. From the staccato riffing of “Give It Away” to the melodic intro of first single “Until The End”, from the hard rock of “Ghost” to 4/4 rock of “Don’t Wanna Go”, the album sounds familiar yet of its own. The album was produced by Wayward Sons (Toby Jepson’s previous credits as a songwriter and producer include the likes of Katie Melua, The Virgin Marys, The Answer and Toseland) and Chris D’Adda (Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds).

With an extensive touring experience under their belt, including UK festivals in 2017 and support to Steel Panther, UFO and Inglorious, Wayward Sons are now ready to embark on a headline UK regional tour this April. In addition, Wayward Sons will join British legends Saxon on their Autumn UK tour this October.

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!
