Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce the signing of the brand new, awesome hard rock band from Britain, DOOMSDAY OUTLAW for a multi-album deal.
DOOMSDAY OUTLAW is a ten-legged armageddon machine rolling out of the heart of the United Kingdom, coupling huge riffs and a killer groove with soaring blues vocals and tales of heartbreak and redemption. This hard rock five-piece came together piece by piece over the last two years, with everything clicking into place with the discovery of vocalist Phil Poole in the summer of 2015. John, the band's drummer, says of Phil: "He's our ace in the hole. Everything else was in place with the songwriting and performance, but Phil has just taken the band to the next level.” He joined the well-oiled unit of Steve Broughton and Gavin Mills (guitars), John 'Ironfoot' Willis (drums), and Indy (bass) and from there the band set out to bring their blend of heavy blues to the world at large.
The band initially released a critically-acclaimed independent debut album, “Black River” in 2015, but knew that they wanted to showcase their new sound even more, so wasted no time in recording a couple of new tunes that summer. Those two tracks, "All That I Have" and "Wait Until Tomorrow", created a real buzz and the band knew that they wanted to start work on a full album as soon as possible. They spent the autumn gigging and writing before heading into the studio in the winter. The resulting album, “Suffer More” was released in May 2016. The album featured fifteen tracks showcasing huge steps in songwriting and quickly gained rave reviews from around the world including 10/10 from Powerplay Magazine ("I doubt you will hear a better album this year"), a blistering review from Fireworks Magazine ("Now THIS is a find!") and Album of the Week from Worship Metal ("Doomsday Outlaw could release an album every 6 weeks and it’d be better than 99% of the bands out there!").
Please enjoy two videos from “Suffer More” to get an idea of the sound of the band:
The band are currently hitting the road in support of “Suffer More”, as well as beginning work on the next set of tunes to unleash on the world.
"We have the luxury of having our own space, being based in a shack in the Derbyshire countryside. It's a bit like The Hills Have Eyes, but we spend our time working on tunes rather than trapping and eating unsuspecting tourists - which is probably for the best,” says Indy, the band's bassist. “Steve is insatiable...bringing in new riffs or complete songs every time we get together, and it's great to have the space we have to get as loud as possible and bash them into more monster tunes."
“Suffer More” saw the band compared favourably to heavyweight rock icons from Led Zeppelin to the Allman Brothers Band, Pantera to Alter Bridge, Black Stone Cherry to Iron Maiden - and Steve is unfazed by that. "We all listen to whatever we want and every listen is a learning experience. You're constantly learning about dynamics, creating moods, lyrics, production - seeing things you'd want to emulate and things you want to avoid. The comparisons have been great - hugely flattering, and we never see the same band twice, which is good. That says to us that we're not copying any band that's gone before. We are the sum of our musical influences, and also our life experiences."
Indy agrees: "We're always willing to try new things musically, and give them the Doomsday Outlaw stamp and make them new again. I love the bands we've been compared to, and love the challenge of beating that standard on the next album."
The next DOOMSDAY OUTLAW album will be released on Frontiers Music in 2017.
