Debut Album ‘Smoke’ – Out Now

“Classic rock? Punk? Stoner? We’re not quite sure, but we f*****g love it” – Metal Hammer
“Rough and tumble party-metal anthems” – Rock Sound
“Belligerent punk-metal” – Kerrang! [KKKK]
“Menacing, heavy, punk-infused rock and roll – Big Cheese Magazine
“Perfectly formed” – Terrorizer
York-based heavy rock’n’roll quintet The Bastard Sons are pleased to reveal they will be supporting Santa Barbara, CA based “goblin metal” pioneersNekrogoblikon on their January/February 2016 UK headline tour.To celebrate the news the band have released a brand new video for ‘Listen Here’ – the latest track to be taken from their recently released debut album Smoke, out now on Kaiju Records.

Portraying a day in the life of a frustrated, ground down nine-to-fiver who finally lets loose and finds a release in the sweaty basement of a rock club, it’s a theme that’s sure to resonate with those of us around the world who find salvation and an escape from the stresses and strains of life through music.

“We can’t wait to get out on the road and bring ‘Smoke’ to you guys live in 2016. What better way to start the year than with the crazy and awesome Nekrogoblikon!” comment the band on the news “2015 has been an awesome year for us: a No.1 single in the iTunes Metal charts then a sold-out UK tour with Snot was a great way to kick things off. Spending summer recording our debut album, whilst playing as many shows as possible was such a fun experience and to then find out the album hit number 2 in the iTunes Metal chart in its first week was amazing. It’s been a hectic but fun year and we can’t wait to step it up a level in 2016!”

The Bastard Sons recently released their debut album ‘Smoke’ which includes iTunes Metal Chart #1 single ‘Release The Hounds’, with the album jumping straight into the iTunes Metal Chart Top 5 on release day.

After a storming 18 months that saw them on a US tour with Throw The Goat, their first ever Hammerfest VI appearance, a main support slot to legendary Californian hardcore punks Snot, an appearance at Bloodstock Festival and shows alongside ’68 (the new project from The Chariot man Josh Scogin), Cavorts and a host of others, support for the band has been steadily building following the release of their first two records.

Their ‘Bones’ and ‘Roads’ EPs attracted praise in the alternative press from Kerrang Magazine, Rock Sound, Big Cheese Magazine, Metal Hammer, Terrorizer, Skin Deep and more, with support at TV and radio also falling in line in the face of their southern-tinged guitar assault.
