Burnt Out Wreck Stand And Fight

Burnt Out Wreck has released a new single in ‘Stand And Fight’,the title track from the band’s upcoming new album due for release on 31st October. 

“These are eleven of the best songs I’ve written. This really was the difficult third album, inspired by the worst one and a half years in my life,” admitted frontman Gary Moat, adding, “But the end result was worth the struggle and this is something I’m really proud of. I invite you all to Stand And Fight.”

Burnt Out Wreck, fronted by Gary Moat, are as musically unpretentious and outstanding a band as they are an old-school, classic guitar-rock outfit. Front man and songwriter Gary Moat, now more than three decades removed from the original Heavy Pettin, is still proving rock ain’t dead, but on very much his own terms – uncompromising riff-led rock that takes the essence of AC/DC and adds sonic swagger and raucous roll in equal measure.

That Burnt Out Wreck sound can be heard to fine effect on debut album Swallow and sophomore release This is Hell, a slightly darker affair that carried both lyrical wit and weighty, guitar-led grit. 

The last five years have also seen well-received festival appearances (including a WinterStorm set that elicited an audience response of “One more song!” at set’s end), supporting the likes of Anvil, a clutch of headline shows and a return invite to BonFest, all of which have started to pay dividends for Moat, Alex Carmichael (bass), Paul Gray (drums) and new guitarist Richard Upson (guitarist Andy McLaughlin will also be part of the band for live work).
