Jared will be special guest on Stone Broken’s February and March UK tour which also features The Bad Flowers. The tour kicks off Thursday 22nd February at the Haunt in Brighton.
Over the past four years Jared has built up a solid reputation as a stunning heavy edged blues rock act and stage beast, having shared stages with the likes of ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Zaak Wylde, Glenn Hughes, Walter Trout, Blue Oyster Cult, UFO and Saxon.
All those tours were executed within a short period of time in support of his highly acclaimed debut album “Old Glory & The Wild Revival”. Jared has quickly reached international status and has continued to deliver crashing propulsive blues tones with soulfully insane guitar solos. It’s raw, raucous, and righteously real.
The Bad Flowers formed from the depths of the Black Country in 2014 comprised of lead vocalist and guitarist, Tom Leighton, whose signature riffs, fuzz emotive guitar and pure vocals have distinctive sound unlike anybody else. Bassist Dale Tonks provides a deep heavy groove and tasty bass runs that underpins Karl Selickis‘ chest pumping drums and impeccable rhythmic feel. The band will release a new single “Secrets” in January to support the release of their debut album, “Starting Gun”, released on February 16th, 2018. The band just finished supporting The Picturebooks on their recent UK tour.
The Bad Flowers, recently released their new single “Thunder Child” on Friday 15th September.
The combination of these three formidable players makes The Bad Flowers a force to be reckoned with, forging a sound steeped in the raw, passionate energy of the Black Country’s 70’s heroes, but, at the same time, keeping the vibe very much in tune with the 21st century rock sensibilities.
In the formative years of 2014/15 the Bad Flowers gained a reputation for their energetic live shows in local pubs, clubs and venues cutting their teeth with the local older and more experienced musicians and soaking up as much stagecraft as possible. During this productive time of wild abandon, The Bad Flowers released the “Vicious Lullabies” and “Killing Time” EP’s.
That same year was a breakthrough in terms of live shows. The Flowers left the local venues in a wake of blood, sweat and ringing ears when they opened for Canadian rockers The Sheepdogs in Birmingham, then onward to extensive tours up and down the UK to packed venues with Crobot, Jared James Nichols and Scorpion Child, plus an appearance at Hard Rock Hell Festival.
