DOOMSDAY OUTLAW is a ten-legged hard rock, blues tinged juggernaut based in darkest Derbyshire. Coupling huge riffs and killer grooves with soaring, soulful vocals to deliver timeless tales of heartbreak and redemption, the group is set to show off its distinctive sound to the legions of hard rock faithful around the globe via a new album, ‘Hard Times’, which is set for worldwide release via Frontiers in May 2018.

Dirty Thrills are a young, exciting and charismatic London based hard rock quartet who play bluesy rock ‘n’ roll with an appealing filthy edge, churning out endless crowd pleasers that make guitar music sound sexy again. Each member’s influences combine to produce a sound reminiscent of Queens Of The Stone Age, The Black Keys and Rival Sons. Their acclaimed second album, ‘Heavy Living’, was released in October 2017, subsequent to which they have toured extensively.
Producing a vibrant new 21st Century form of balls-to-the-wall Rock n’ Roll, and with a reputation as one of the hardest working young bands around, The Brink will release their debut album in late Weaving delicate vocal and instrumental harmonies around hard, driving riffs, they have created a fresh new style and already enticed fans of several rock sub-genres. Armed with fist-pumping anthems and solid ballads befitting of early Def Leppard and Bon Jovi, backed up with an exciting live show full of youthful vivacity, The Brink surely belong on the stadium stage.
