wayward sons

Wayward Sons have been added to Steel Panther's UK and Eire dates in January 2018. This comes hot on the heels of the release of their debut album, 'Ghosts Of Yet To Come', and their main support slot to Inglorious across the UK this month.

Wayward Sons - Toby Jepson (Vocals/Guitar), Sam Wood (Guitar), Nic Wastell (Bass), Dave Kemp (Keys) and Phil Martini (Drums) - produced a hugely accomplished debut album in 'Ghosts Of Yet To Come', with Toby Jepson having the basis of songs written when the band formed.

Together they then took these rough song ideas and forged their own sound. Lyrically the album sees Jepson treading a far more personal line than some of his previous output. The album was produced by Wayward Sons (Toby Jepson's previous credits as a songwriter and producer include Katie Melua, The Virgin Marys, The Answer and Toseland) and Chris D'Adda (Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds).

The band also had the idea to release four videos to support a single release – with the videos together making one short film. All four videos are right here.

Wayward Sons play Hard Rock Hell in November before the support slot with Steel Panther. Here's all the dates.

Thursday 9th November: North Wales, Hard Rock Hell
Thursday 18th January: Eire, Dublin, Academy
Friday 19th January: Belfast, Academy
Saturday 20th January: Glasgow, Academy
Wednesday 24th January: Manchester, Apollo
Friday 26th January: London, Hammersmith Apollo

Tickets are available right here.

MetalTalk's Mark Taylor caught up with Toby Jepson for a pint and a natter at the Duke Of York pub in London. Toby was in fine talkative mood as he chatted about the Wayward Sons and you can see the full conversation right here:
