Following airplay on Planet Rock for their new single ‘Thunder Child‘, Black Country-based three piece blues rock band The Bad Flowers have now also released an official video to accompany it, prior to embarking on assorted gigs and touring throughout the UK.
The Bad Flowers formed in Cannock, near Wolverhampton in 2014, lead vocalist and guitarist Tom Leighton, bassist Dale Tonks and drummer Karl Selickis learning their stage craft playing support at pubs and clubs around the Black Country before extending out to the West Midlands. Following two independently released EPs, Vicious Lullabies and Killing Time, they have gone on to support the likes of Crobot, Jared James Nichols, Scorpion Child, Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown, Toseland and Dan Baird and The Original Sin, plus made an appearance at the Hard Rock Hell Festival.
‘Thunder Child’ is available digitally from iTunes while their debut album Starting Gun is due in early 2018. Prior to that they will take off on a 10 date UK tour; five of those as support to The Picturebooks and one in Oxford supporting Skinny Molly, and following that a Planet Rock appearance in the new year.
