Sons of Liberty – Friday 22nd March 2024
The band from Bristol have established themselves as one of the most popular live and recording bands on the current original hard rock scene. With a reputation built on a solid foundation of extensive live touring, blistering live performances and a passion for creating exceptional new rock music the bands trajectory continues to be extraordinary. These boys uniquely manage to mix a lot of fun and humility with a deep appreciation for their audience and a deadly serious commitment to creating authentic, well crafted music.
Sons of Liberty are Russ Grimmett (Vocals), Fred Hale and Andy Muse (Guitars), Mark Thomas (Bass) and Steve Byrne (Drums).
September 2023 saw the release of their first new music for 2 years, with the lead single ‘Time To Fly’, which has already achieved #2 in Classic Rock Magazine’s ‘Tracks of the Week’ feature and #1 most played song on HRH Radio, heralding their eagerly awaited third album, which was produced and engineered by Josiah J Manning at Momentum Studios, and with a hot new video produced by Kris Barras, taking things up a few steps.
2021’s ‘Aces & Eights’ album featured the singles Don’t Hide Behind Your Weakness (Classic Rock Magazine ‘Tracks of the Week’), Ruby Starr (Classic Rock Magazine ‘Tracks of the Week’), Damaged Reputation (as play-listed on Planet Rock Radio) and Fire & Gasoline (‘Track of The Week’ on Planet Rock Radio) and also featured on the UK official top 10 charting Official New Wave Of Classic Rock – Volume 1 ‘rising stars’ CD
The Sons really fill a big stage with their masterful stagecraft, endearing sense of mischief and their powerful quality music; they have become sure fire winners on any billing. They tour relentlessly across the UK and in Europe and have left their mark on many of the current scene’s best loved festivals such as:
Maid of Stone, Giants of Rock, Planet Rockstock, Planet Rock Winter’s End, Rock and Blues Custom Show, Rockin The Bowl, LoveRocks, SOS, Cambridge Rock Festival, WinterStorm, Cornwall Rocks, Firevolt MCR, Raismes Fest, Hard Rock Hell, as well as headline shows at some of the most iconic rock venues in the UK. 2023 saw the Sons return to France for Show Bike Aquitaine and Bully on Rocks festivals.
The Sons have also co-headlined with Preacher Stone (USA) and toured extensively as special guests to Molly Hatchet, FM and Grand Slam.
Special guests on the night are The Mike Ross Band.
