wayward sons
Toby Jepson's new band, Wayward Sons, have been added to the Inglorious UK Tour across September and October 2017 as main support.

The band, who thrilled crowds at Ramblin' Man in July, are set to release their debut album, 'Ghosts Of Yet To Come', on 15th September through Frontiers Music Srl.

Toby Jepson is joined in Wayward Sons by Sam Wood (guitar), Nic Wastell (bass), Dave Kemp (keys) and Phil Martini (drums) and they are set to release four videos to support single releases which will make one short film. The first three videos are now available and you can see them right here:

Toby had the basis of the songs that make up 'Ghosts Of Yet To Come' already written when the band formed and together they then took these rough song ideas and forged their own sound. Lyrically the album sees Toby treading a far more personal line than some of his previous output.

The album was produced by Wayward Sons with Toby's previous credits as a songwriter and producer including Katie Melua, The Virgin Marys, The Answer, Toseland and Chris D’Adda (Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds).

As well as being special guests to Inglorious in the UK through September and October 2017 in all but three of the dates, Wayward Sons also have three supports to UFO.

Confirmed Wayward Sons dates are:
Thursday 14th September: Dorking, Dorking Halls
Friday 15th September: Holmfirth, Picturedome
Saturday 16th September: Northampton, Roadmender
Saturday 30th September: Pontypridd, Uni Arts Centre
Sunday 1st October: Southampton, The Brook
Saturday 7th October: Bilston, Robin 2
Sunday 8th October: Newcastle, Academy 2
Tuesday 10th October: Glasgow, Classic Grand
Wednesday 11th October: York, Fibbers
Thursday 12th October: Nottingham, Rescue Rooms
Friday 20th October: London, Electric Ballroom
Thursday 9th November: North Wales, Hard Rock Hell

On the first three dates Wayward Sons are special guests to UFO and special guests to Inglorious on all others except Hard Rock Hell.

Tickets available right here.

'Ghosts Of Yet To Come' is released through Frontiers Music Srl on 15th September 2017.

Toby had a long conversation with Mark Taylor of MetalTalk just before the Ramblin' Man date and you can see what he had to say right here:

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
