The assembled ranks of Inglorious are gathered in readiness for a twin-pronged assault upon the UK next year with a new album and tour in the offing.
Ahead of the release of their new full length offering ‘We Will Ride’ in mid-February and a 22 date full UK tour, running from late-April well into May, the hard rocking quintet have launched an early strike with the release of ‘She Won’t Let You Go’; the first indication of what heading our way in the new year.
From the intro’ing riffs of lead guitarist Danny Dela Cruz, nattily attired in a striped suit in the accompanying video, kick-starting his band mates into action to track-end some 4 minutes later it’s evident that the Inglorious ship has been steadied after charting choppy waters in their recent past.
Vocalist Nathan James is in fine form; a frontman who wears his influences loud and proud. Absolutely nothing wrong with David Coverdale, Robert Plant and Steven Tyler in my humble opinion.
Drummer Phil Beaver has formed a formidable rhythm partnership with renowned Brazilian bassist Vinnie Colla; with the pair laying down a strong foundation that you could construct skyscrapers on. Out front six-stringer Dan Stevens complements Cruz in a twin-lead attack.
“Red haired lady, got a nasty reputation”; frontman James is on the money for sure. Talking about the new release he says, “This a song myself and Danny wrote before he was even in the band, I wanted the video to showcase each member individually so everyone could see each person at a time doing their thing.
The same guy who has done all our videos shot it, which was quite tricky given the lockdown restrictions. The song is about a girl who we met on a night out in Camden, she had flame red hair and a mean right hook…”
This new single from one of the leading lights of the UK rock scene has it all – slick solos, chopping riffs, a hook that’ll sink it’s claws deep into your rock n’ roll heart and an infectious chorus that will be going around in your head on repeat. 2021 promises much.
