A couple of months ago we learned that UK folk big band Bellowhead had been spending time in the studio with producer John Leckie recording the followup to their wildly successful 2010 album Hedonism. Well now we have details and it’s looking pretty special.
The new album, titled Broadside has cover art (above), a track listing (at the bottom of the article) and a release date of the 15th October. According to the official press that’s come out on the album “Broadside is a positive spectacular, taking some of the wildest, most joyous and iconic songs in the richly colourful canon of the folk song tradition and turning them upside down and inside out with the unique sense of drama and theatre, instrumental virtuosity, verve, humour and blind cheek that has seen them spearhead the new folk boom.”
Stay tuned for more Bellowhead information as we get it.
