UK five-piece anthemic rock act Massive Wagons are thrilled to announce they signed a worldwide record deal with Earache Records (The Temperance Movement, Blackberry Smoke, Rival Sons). The deal comes off the back of the band’s growing reputation as one of the brightest new UK rock talents. New track “Under No Illusion” has play-listed by Planet Rock – months before the new album release.
Frontman Baz Mills comments: “Signing to Earache for us has been the absolute making of this band. We like to think we were operators beforehand, but since the signing we’ve really ramped up every aspect of what we do: including stage shows and song writing. A massive thing for us is being added to the Download 2018 line-up, that’s something we’ve been striving towards since day 1, plus we have a summer jammed with festival slots: Steelhouse, Rock and Blues Custom Show, Wildfire to name a few. Busy times, good times, can’t wait to get stuck into it with Earache and see how far we can take this.”
The band releases a brand new single “China Plates” on Friday 11thMay, which will be available across all digital platforms. “China Plates” is a driving rock song that showcases both Massive Wagons distinctive sound and their unique personality, led by the inimitable Baz Mills. The song shows the evolution of the band’s song writing both sonically and lyrically from previous album “Welcome To The World”.
“China Plates” will be featured on a new studio album, “Full Nelson” due for release later in 2018.
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 and Boomtown – with more to follow.
Massive Wagons are: Baz Mills – vocals, Adam Thistlethwaite – guitars, Stephen Holl – guitars, Alex Thistlethwaite – drums, and Adam ‘Bowz’ Bouskill – bass.
