Fresh from entering the UK Rock Charts at No 1 and UK Album Chart at No 22 with new album 'Inglorious II', UK classic rockers Inglorious have announced a UK and Ireland tour. Hitting home shores throughout September and October 2017, the dates come on top of already announced continent shows.
As well as playing a brace of Irish dates in Belfast at the Limelight on 3rd October, and in Dublin at the Academy Green Room on 4th October, the Nathan James-fronted act will play an extensive run across the UK. The full list of dates can be viewed below.
Produced by the band and mixed by the legendary Iron Maiden and Aerosmith producer Kevin Shirley, 'Inglorious II' further shows the bands influences that stem from iconic rock and roll shrine of rock albums from the 1970s.
Speaking to eonmusic in July 2016, James said of the band's hard rock sound; "If you want to play proper classic rock, you can’t be an average guitar player, you can’t be an average drummer, you can’t be a crap singer - you have to be able to deliver night after night, and whatever people say about us; we’ve got stamina".
Continuing, the vocalist sad; "It’s taken me fifteen years to learn how to sing properly, so it’s not me in a bedroom with an acoustic, singing sad songs - you need to practice, and you need to commit and be serious about it, and everyone in our band practices all the time".
Released on 12th May 2017, 'Inglorious II' is available as a standard CD and also as a Deluxe CD/DVD edition. The DVD will feature a previously unavailable live performance from Download Festival 2016 plus extra bonus content, including videos for forthcoming singles “I Don’t Need Your Loving” and “Taking The Blame”. A vinyl release is also available through Frontiers Music Srl partners Soulfood.
UPDATE: Inglorious have posted the following message on their Facebook page: "Due to the terrible events in Manchester, Livenation + Inglorious have requested that out of respect promotion, and ticket sales, for their October tour be put back one week until Wed May 31".
