Dirty Thrills are a young, exciting and charismatic London based hard rock quartet who play bluesy
rock ‘n’ roll with an appealing filthy edge, churning out endless crowd pleasers that make guitar music
sound sexy again.
With lung-busting, powerful vocals from front man Louis James, killer guitar riffs from Jack Fawdry and
solid low-end grooves from the rhythm section of Aaron Plows and Steve Corrigan, each band member’s
wide-ranging influences also combine to produce a pool of sound similar to current rock icons such as
Queens of the Stone Age, The Black Keys and Rival Sons.
Dirty Thrills formed after a drunken night of jamming in a quiet village pub in Wiltshire, but what started
out as an inconspicuous session swiftly birthed an ambitious group with the drive and determination to
bring the glory days back to the rock scene. Having released a self-titled debut record in 2014, they
signed to Italian powerhouse label Frontiers Music srl in 2016. Their new album, ‘Heavy Living’, was
recorded at Monnow Valley Studio in Rockfield, Monmouth and produced/mixed by James Loughrey
(The Darkness, Skindred, Sumo Cyco).
