Press Release May 201801/07/2018
WDFD Records Ltd are delighted to announce that Scottish rock band PARIAH SOUL are launching their new EP via the label on 11th May. The EP consists of 4 tracks of glorious blues-based rock songs headed up by the stunning “Hang”. Bass man Jason said, “We are really proud of these tracks and we hope that people can connect with the raw emotion that went in to the recording. We would love you to get in touch and let us know what you think!” The official launch party is at The Admiral in Glasgow on 11th May and the boys will then be travelling south to support their new label mates THEIA on 18th May at The Sitwell in Derby. Keith Lamley spoke about the very quick decision to bring the band on board – “I was introduced to the guys via a mutual contact and was very impressed by their approach and their work ethic. Once I heard the tracks it was an easy decision to make. I am really looking forward to working with them in the future and building on this launch.”
Fellow label mates Anonymous have also made the bold move to change their name to The Howling Tides. Although the band have built up a great reputation and name-awareness, it was proving a problem on social media where the term “anonymous” brought up some weird and wonderful results and made it difficult to find the band and their music in searches. Speaking about the change they said, “This re-vamp has given us all fresh motivation and enthusiasm, and from here we’ll be moving forward as fast and as passionately as we possibly can. We’re off to Ibiza for HRH Road Trip in just a few days where we’ll play our first show in another country, and in the coming weeks we’ll be dropping a lot of fresh new stuff and making a few more big announcements.”
Meanwhile THEIA have completed a wonderfully successful support tour with Chasing Dragons, and whilst they were away they received the news that the The Ghost Light Pledge Campaign has achieved its target. We are hugely proud of them and know that the third album is going to be the best yet. The Pledge Campaign will remain open until 13th July and more exclusive items are due to be added for supporters. The THEIA boys now move on to The Sitwell in Derby on 18th May with PARIAH SOUL, 27th May at The Giffard in Wolverhampton for DementiaAware fest and Wildfire Fest on 23rd June amongst other dates.
