wayward sons

Fresh from the critically acclaimed release of their debut album, 'Ghosts Of Yet To Come', and supports to Steel Panther and Inglorious across the UK in January, Wayward Sons wil embark on a full headline UK tour in April and to coincide with the headline shows, Wayward Sons will be releasing a brand new single, 'Don't Wanna Go', taken from 'Ghosts Of Yet To Come'.

Wayward Sons are Toby Jepson (vocals/guitar), Sam Wood (guitar), Nic Wastell (bass), Dave Kemp (keys) and Phil Martini (drums). They have an impressive resume of groups they have previously worked with – Little Angels, Fastway, Gun, Quireboys, Spear Of Destiny, Treason Kings and Chrome Molly to name a few - but Wayward Sons sound nothing like the sum of their parts. The music is hard rock but mixed with a vitality and energy, both musically and lyrically.

'Ghosts Of Yet To Come' is a hugely accomplished debut album. From the staccato riffing of 'Give It Away' to the melodic intro of first single 'Until The End', from the hard rock of 'Ghost' to 4/4 rock of 'Don't Wanna Go', the album sounds familiar, yet of its own. It was produced by Wayward Sons (Toby Jepson's previous credits as a songwriter and producer include Katie Melua, The Virgin Marys, The Answer and Toseland) and Chris D'Adda (Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds.
