Weatherbird to release single King Gluttony and summer tour/festivals announced
The angst, aggression and cultivated sound of 'King Gluttony', the new single from Weatherbird, totally belies the band's teenage years, showing why there is such widespread excitment surrounding the Shropshire-based four piece right now. BBC Radio 6Music Tom Robinson's recent comment, "a band that is supporting a rebirth of grunge/alternative rock", seems entirely justified based on this latest musical deliverance.
Picking up accolades as they go - Artrocker New Blood, "Impressive" - Gary Crowley (BBC London), "Fist pumping rock N roll through a younger, more fresh faced filter" (This Is Fake DIY) and acclaimed "Festival Ready" by Amazing Radio and "Excellent" by BBC 6Music's Fresh On The Net, Weatherbird's fans additionally The Guardian (who have featured them), Jim Gellatly, Supa Jam, Subba Cultha, BBC Introducing and KYEO TV.
Weatherbird look set to join the current swell of incredible young UK bands who have the knack for writing unforgettably melodic tracks that songwriters twice their age would kill for.
