The Wildhearts are one of the greatest English rock bands of the last 30 years, with 4 UK Top 4 albums, 1 UK Top 10 and 13 Top 40 singles! The band’s last record Renaissance Men was their most successful for a decade and was the band’s second highest charting album, landing at number 11 in the UK Albums Chart.
Lead by their incredibly charismatic frontman Ginger, The Wildhearts effortlessly bounce between hard rock, melodic pop and industrial tinged mayhem with ease.
Take a listen to the bands just released anthem, Sort Your Fucking Shit Out taken from 21st Century Love Songs, to be released on September 3.
Nottingham folk rockers, Ferocious Dog are the epitome of political British folk punk. Instantly familiar and catchy as hell, never has the revolution sounded so merry!
The band are the only unsigned band to sell out the main room of Nottingham Rock City (1800 capacity) Fans were asked to bring donations for food banks to the show which resulted in seven vans full of help for the needy!
Ferocious Dog frontman Ken Bonsall stood as a trade unionist & socialist coalition candidate in the recent UK local council elections and is also an official Ambassador for Sea Shepherd the international non-profit marine wildlife conservation organisation.
The Hope will be released on October 15.
The album’s first single Pentrich Rising tackles the subject of the last English Revolution with scenes filmed at Derby Gaol also the scene of the last beheading in England.

Ross Jennings is vocalist and co-songwriter for internationally renown progressive metallers, Haken. The band won Best UK Act at the 2019 PROG awards and their most recent album Virus, reached #2 in the UK rock chart and #52 in the US Billboard Hot 100.
In contrast to his prog metal day job, Ross has a major soft spot for American AOR, mainstream 90’s arena rock and indie pop. All of which have influenced the direction of his debut solo album, A Shadow Of My Future Self, due for release towards the end of 2021.
Ross is on a musical journey his fans have not heard him explore professionally before. Writing very personal songs in what can only be described as a love letter to those soft spot genres that were the foundation to Ross’s musical inspiration. A Shadow Of My Future Self starts on the fringe of a country road navigates indie pop anthemic rock power ballads andculminates in some epic prog.
