Black Country Thunder Child 16/9/17
The Bad Flowers, yesterday released their new single 'Thunder Child' which is today's Track Of The Day. To support the release of 'TC', the 3-piece will embark on an 10-date UK tour seeing them support The Picturebooks in October on half of their gigs. The Bad Flowers, formed from the depths of the Black Country in 2014, comprise of lead vocalist and guitarist, Tom Leighton, whose signature riffs, fuzz emotive guitar and pure vocals have distinctive sound unlike anybody else. Bassist Dale Tonks provides a deep heavy groove and tasty bass runs that underpins Karl Selickis' chest pumping drums and impeccable rhythmic feel. We first caught the guys at the O2 Islington Academy supporting Crobot and Dirty Thrills in June last year - a breakthrough year as The Flowers left local venues in a wake of blood, sweat and ringing ears when they opened for Canadian rockers The Sheepdogs in Birmingham, then onward to extensive tours up and down the UK to packed venues with Jared James Nichols and Scorpion Child, plus an appearance at Hard Rock Hell. Their highly anticipated debut album, titled 'Starting Gun', is set for release in early 2018.
