Blues-rock three-piece land new al­bum

Guitarist - - Music -

They’ve toured with Deep Pur­ple, Sta­tus Quo, War­ren Haynes and Joe Bona­massa and yet many peo­ple are still un­aware of the blues-rock pow­er­house that is Wille & The Ban­dits, de­spite be­ing voted one of the top 10 bands to see play live at the Glas­ton­bury Fes­ti­val. Led by slide-player supreme Wille Ed­wards, the band mixes the in­flu­ences of clas­sic rock bands in­clud­ing Led Zep­pelin with a dis­tinctly mod­ern vibe. “I feel that we have fi­nally man­aged to cap­ture the var­i­ous sound­scapes and un­usual in­stru­men­ta­tion of our sound on one al­bum with­out los­ing the raw, live en­ergy…” Wille told us – and he’s right. Tracks such as Ret­ri­bu­tion and Make Love sound like weath­ered sta­dium an­thems in the mak­ing, and the band’s UK tour kick­ing off on 26 Jan­uary is def­i­nitely one to ven­ture out into the cold dark win­ter night for. [DM] Stand­out track: Ret­ri­bu­tion For fans of: ZZ Top, Sea­sick Steve
