When I interviewed Nathan James from Inglorious when he was in Belfast in July (http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/interviews/2773-ni-rocks-interview-with-nathan-james-from-inglorious.html ) he mentioned that they were heading into the studio to commence work on album number two. There was more about the new album in the media this week. It is being produced by Kevin Shirley who is famous for his work with Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi and many others. Shirley has been quoted as saying “This band are actually glorious! Amazing singer, amazing band. The best British band I’ve seen since…I could say the Darkness, but I really mean Led Zeppelin.” 

  2016 has been a stunning year for UK five-piece Inglorious. Their eponymous debut album was released through Frontiers Music in February. The album received widespread critical acclaim at press, multiple A lists at radio and a lauded performance on Vintage TV. The band are managed by QEDG (Yes, Asia) and booked by Steve Strange at X-Ray (live agent for Coldplay, Eminem and QOTSA).

 

 

The band toured across the world, with numerous high profile shows across the UK and Europe – including a show stopping performances at Download Festival 2016 and Ramblin’ Man Fair 2016, supports to Winery Dogs and The Dead Daisies, and culminating in support to Steel Panther’s European Arena tour in October 2016.

 

September 2016 saw the band base themselves in Liverpool and work on the follow up studio album with legendary producer Kevin Shirley. Set for release in 2017 the album is set to further push the rise of this remarkable band.

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. For the debut album, 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."

 

The band is lineup completed by rhythm guitarist Wil Taylor, lead guitarist Andreas Eriksson, bassist Colin Parkinson, and drummer Phil Beaver. Wil, from the Northeast of England, is the youngest member of the band whose heroes include Mark Tremonti (Alter Bridge), Joe Satriani and Steve Lukather (Toto).

 

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.
