Hardened rockers Massive Wagons have announced details of third album 'Welcome To The World', on the eve of their U.K. tour. The third long player from the British outfit, it's due for release on 29th April 2016.
Speaking about the album, guitarist Adam Thistlethwaite says; “our sound has always drawn on many different influences from classic rock to AOR to heavy blues and prog".
He continues; “Those influences are deliberately more polarised from track to track on this album. We love to be able to morph from highly accessible rock to deeper cuts".
All of which means that; “the result is something a lot more diverse yet a lot more ‘us’. We had a much heavier hand in the production beyond just the performance. I think we’ve achieved what we set out to do.”
Offering a taster for the album, the band have recently released the video for 'revved up anthem''Tokyo', which can be viewed below. With singer Baz Mills refrain of 'you won't play us on the radio', the track reveals the fighting spirit at the very heart of Massive Wagons.
Meanwhile. the band hit the road for a U.K. tour in April, with dates around the country starting at Newcastle O2 Academy on 14th. The tour sees the five-piece teaming up with label mates Trucker Diablo, Screaming Eagles, Skam, Chase The Ace and Thirteen Stars for the jaunt.
