    • INGLORIOUS RELEASE 3RDALBUM “RIDE TO NOWHERE”


      Nathan
      “This album is different in many ways.
      The songs came about very quickly. as with all our songs we start with a riff, and this time having New guitarist Drew added a new grungier, heavier feel to a couple of songs. We wrote the basics mostly together all in one room on acoustic guitars and then I went away and crafted the stories I wanted to tell. for me this album is very personal. I am for the first time writing about a lot of my feelings, relationships and losses...I lost my grandfather and one of my best friends this year and I had to write about these wonderful people I was lucky enough to have in my life. I also had moments since the last album where I was extremely angry with people, so there is a bit of that in this album too. sonically Kevin Shirley has made this album sound different to our last, we feel it’s a heavier sounding and more produced, we spent a lot of time in the studio making sure we were all really happy with our sounds.”

      “On this album I feel that the songs are a true reflection of what we’ve been through over the past few years - both as a band and as individuals. You’ve got the high’s, the lows and lessons learned along the way. The making of this album was at a time when we all had our own personal situations and changes to deal with. I feel that this definitely comes through on the recordings and particularly songs like ‘tomorrow’, ‘where are you now’ and ‘glory days’. I’m very happy with how it’s turned out and how we’ve captured our ideas from getting the right vibe to the sounds themselves. I really look forward to our fans hearing it and getting out live to play longer sets now!”

      Drew
      “The Album is the next step for the band in maturity. Being that it's my first I wasn't sure what to expect. But as soon as we started we knew what type of record was coming. The process was recorded much like the last apparently in that we recorded the bass layer tracks live. This added authenticity to the music which a lot of bands lack in the current digital world. Hopefully the fans will love it as they follow us on the musical journey.”
       
      Phil
      “We’re all really happy with the way the new record sounds and look forward to seeing how the fans receive it. I personally can’t wait to play the new material live on the road!”
       
      Adde
      “There’s a lot of variety on this album, more so than the previous ones and that I really like. Sonically I think it sounds more fresh, contemporary in a sense and that goes for a bunch of songs on the album as well. Just the singles alone are different than how we’ve sounded in the past but still has the Inglorious feel and vibe! Lastly I also think that  musically it’s better than the previous albums, everyone plays very tasteful , soulful and collectively I feel that it’s perfect!”

    WE ARE INGLORIOUS

    The future of rock and roll.” Planet Rock Radio - Paul Anthony.

    Inglorious are five young men with a mutual love and respect of the classics of Hard Rock music, big guitar riffs, and soulful vocals.  Their influences stem from iconic rock and roll shrine of Rock albums from the 1970s – many years before the band members were born.

    The same albums that have inspired generations of musicians and performers are noticeably evident when you listen to the Inglorious debut album.  This is the music they were born to play together - inspired by bands in the classic rock genre as diverse as Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Whitesnake, Bad Company, Aerosmith, the Rolling Stones, to name a few.

    Formed in February 2014, the band is fronted by Nathan James, who made a name for himself having sung for the multi-platinum selling Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and Scorpions guitar legend Uli Jon Roth.  Nathan was looking for like-minded musicians that desired to make incredible rock music in a very honest fashion.

    Nathan thought to himself, “Why are those classic albums so awesome?” He realised it was because “the musicians were recording in an organic way; they could track it live and capture amazing energy."

    “Not only in rock but in Motown and even classical music they tracked everyone in the room at the same time,” adds Nathan.  “The air movement from a bass drum, that same excitement you get when you perform, and that's exactly how I wanted the album to feel." Nathan wanted all his fellow musicians in the room at the same time, no click tracks, no auto tune and no overdubs. He wasn't willing to compromise.  Says Nathan - "For so long people have been hiding mistakes, singers using auto tune to make them sound perfect, double tracking to make it sound bigger and using click to play in time. There is none of that on this album.

    This record is about vibe, feeling, excitement, energy and performance of songs we all wrote together. That's how it came out that day and it will never be exactly the same again. We captured a series of moments that make up our debut album."

    Inglorious is composed of rhythm guitarist Drew Lowe, lead guitarist Andreas Eriksson, bassist Colin Parkinson, and drummer Phil Beaver.

    Drew was an original member of the band before they signed a record deal to Frontiers Music Srl and is now back as a permanent member after the departure of Wil Taylor. Nathan had previously toured the UK with the guitarist in another band and when the time came to audition for the other members Drew suggested his bass playing cousin Colin and ex room mate Phil.

    Colin and Phil both hail from Somerset, and have played together in bands for 17 years (at one point, both were signed to Mick Fleetwood’s label while Phil was still at school). Phil's Bonham-like groove, great snare work and exciting fills and Colin's fat, gritty bass sound, make for a formidable rhythm section.

    Andreas - a lead guitar player that shares all the same influences, can command a stage and was able to track the whole album the way Nathan wanted. Guitarist Andreas Eriksson played in bands from his home country of Sweden for many years, and has taken influences from all the greats, making him one of the most musically well rounded guitar players in the contemporary rock scene. His bluesy, melodic, soulful playing compliments Nathan’s soaring vocals. The pair is 2016’s version of the Toxic Twins.

    The band completed their second album in summer of 2016 when the had a few free weeks from a 80 show touring run that saw them tour the UK and Europe with The Winery Dogs, The Dead Daisies, Last in Line and Steel Panther. They recorded it at the world famous Parr St studios in Liverpool and it was engineered by Tony Draper.

    The studio the band tracked live in was the same one that Coldplay recorded the clocks album in. The band wanted to keep the live energy like the first album but this studio took it to a whole different level of sound quality and the boys really enjoyed the sights and sounds of the city of culture.

    The debut album attracted a lot of great press and praise. Queens Brian May said “You guys really do look like a potent young Deep Purple but with a new slant - very Classic! And the musicianship is stunning. Amazing vocals, by the way!”

    The follow up album was released on may the 12th and made the UK official midweek top ten and hit number one in the official UK rock chart. The album was mixed by the legendary Kevin Shirley who has worked with the likes of Iron Maiden, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, Joe Bonamassa and Black Stone Cherry to name a few. Kevin said " This is the best British band since, well I could say the darkness but i really mean Led Zeppelin, amazing singer, amazing band.

    The Bands 3rd album, has been recorded at Parr Street Studios again, and Mixed again by the legendary Kevin Shirley. This one has it all. A couple of up tempo songs, a more metal routed song, a 6-minute epic, 2 ballads, 1 acoustic and the other big riffy bluesy stuff we are becoming known for. It’s a much darker feeling album and the artwork will reflect this too. The band were in the studio in May to do this, the release is Jan 25th 2019, followed by an album launch tour.
