The Midlands based UK hard rock band, THE BAD FLOWERS will release their debut studio album titled “Starting Gun” on Friday 16th February 2018.
The album is the follow-up to 2016’s self-titled EP and shows considerable development in song writing prowess and musicianship with ever-fizzing guitars, intoxicating vocals and bucketfulls of stalwart bluesiness…
For example, the single “Thunder Child” taken from the album had : “ravishing guitars, plentiful bass over-loadings and great wallops of brutally unrestricted hardness...” and reminded us of Thunder and Bad Company when we heard it in September.
The band will play an exclusive album launch show at the Birmingham Asylum 2 on Saturday 17th February 2018 – they aim to play the new album plus reveal some surprises.
To correspond with the release of the debut album, The Bad Flowers will be special guests of STONE BROKEN on their nationwide 12 date UK tour starting Thursday 22nd February at The Haunt Brighton. The tour also includes an appearance at Planet Rock’s Winters End Festival.
A pre-sale of Starting Gun has already begun via the band website https://thebadflowers.tmstor.es. Orders include a limited edition signed red vinyl edition of the album, exclusive t-shirts only available for pre-orders and hand drawn, plus signed, and numbered personalised drum heads.
Following the September release of “Thunder Child” the band were named as one of Planet Rock Radio’s “Ones To Watch”.
