ABOUT WAYWARD SONS

When former Little Angels frontman Toby Jepson was approached by a record label about making a new album, his immediate response was that he would do it only if it was on his terms creatively, and in the form of a brand-new band rather than a solo project. Pulling together the dream team of Sam Wood (guitars), Nic Wastell (bass), Dave Kemp (keyboards) and Phil Martini (drums), Wayward Sons was born.

Debut album Ghosts Of Yet To Come was unleashed on an unsuspecting public in Autumn 2017. Its blend of hard rock fused with influences from new wave and punk took both media and public by surprise, and a reputation as a brilliant live act with a rapidly growing following was developed. To cap it all Planet Rock awarded the band their Best New Act award at the end of the year, single Until The End having sat on the stations A-List for week after week after week.

After a year of endless touring the band returned to the studio at the start of 2019, with the determined belief that they had to raise the bar once again with album two, and, boy have they delivered. The Truth Ain’t What It Used To Be is an album for our times. Defying genres whilst echoing some of the greatest eras of musical history, it has picked up universally glowing reviews and taken the band to a whole new level.

The album was preceded by a short film, cut into four video chunks, depicting a society where the clowns have taken over, and featuring four initial tracks from the record. This is an album that pulls no punches, that tells it how it is in 2019, but also features some of the greatest songwriting this generation has heard. Touring has stepped up as well, with the band taking in the UK and Europe with Black Star Riders in Autumn 2019 and heading out across those territories again in early 2020 with Steel Panther. Major slots at Download and Graspop festivals are on the horizon too, along with a headline tour where the full carnival show will take to the stage.
