Wayward Sons are delighted to announce the release of their debut album “Ghosts Of Yet To Come” on the 15th September through Frontiers Music Srl.

Wayward Sons is a UK guitar act made up of Toby Jepson (Vocals/Guitar), Sam Wood (Guitar), Nic Wastell (Bass), Dave Kemp (Keys) and Phil Martini (Drums). They have an impressive resume of groups they have previously worked with – Little Angels, Gun, Spear Of Destiny, Treason Kings and Chrome Molly to name a few – which is reassuring in terms of the band as players, but doesn’t really hint at their sound. Wayward Sons sound nothing like the sum of their parts. The music is hard rock but mixed with a vitality and energy – both musically and lyrically.

The band is set to release four videos to support single releases. The videos together will make one short film. You can see the first video for debut single 'Until The End' online now.

'Ghosts Of Yet To Come' is a hugely accomplished debut album – as might be expected. From the staccato riffing of 'Give It Away' to the melodic intro of first single 'Until The End', from the hard rock of 'Ghosts' to 4/4 rock of 'Don’t Wanna Go', the album sounds familiar yet of its own. Toby Jepson had the basis of songs written when the band formed. Together they then took these rough song ideas and forged their own sound. Lyrically the album sees Jepson treading a far more personal line than some of his previous output.

“I feel I have unfinished business, stories still left to tell, points to make, noise to create, all of the above… besides, it wasn’t a choice, more of a need. My intention is very simple. I want to write about what makes me tick; about what I believe in. Hopefully you will believe in it too. It will be warts and all,” says Jepson.

The album was produced by Wayward Sons (Toby Jepson’s previous credits as a songwriter and producer include the likes of Katie Melua, The Virgin Marys, The Answer and Toseland) and Chris D’Adda (Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds).

'Ghosts Of Yet To Come' will at turns surprise, beguile and inspire…

Wayward Sons have a series of live dates through 2017, with more to follow. Confirmed so far are:

26th July - BRISTOL, The Louisiana

28th July - PENTRICH, Rock & Blues Custom Show

29th July - MAIDSTONE, Ramblin' Man Fair

30th July - EBBW VALE, Steelhouse Live

'Ghosts Of Yet To Come' is released through Frontiers Music Srl on the 15th of September 2017.

Former Little Angels frontman's new band to release debut album in 2017

"Welcome to the very beginning of my new band 'Wayward Sons'. Why now?

Well ,I feel I have unfinished business, stories still left to tell, points to make, noise to create, all of the above...besides, it wasn't a choice, more of a need.

My intention is very simple. I want to sing about what makes me tick; about what I believe in. Hopefully you will believe in it too.

It will be warts and all.

Take it.

Leave it.

I hope I can help by being passionate through entertainment.

I'm currently writing the first album. We hope to record later this year and release next year through Frontiers Records. Yes! an actual record deal! I have a great team around me to help this en-devour, and have high hopes.

This is a new chapter in my life as a musician and song writer, I hope you will come along for the ride.

So please like this page and lets get cracking.

Best regards

Toby J

(Somerset May 2016) "

Toby Jepson has been in demand since the highly successful UK hard rock band Little Angels split in 1994. As a producer, he's worked with The Virginmarys, The Answer, Saxon and Toseland (the latter, Jepson has been a major driving force, as the former World Superbikes Champion band's profile grows in in the UK, Europe and the USA). Add to that co-writing credits including Katie Melua plus various solo album / ep releases, Toby Jepson is a talent to behold and the prospect of Wayward Sons is one to be relished.

Waywards Sons debut album is expected to be released via Frontiers Records in the first half of 2017.

Rising stars of the British rock scene, BLACKWOLF have announced they've teamed up with PLEDGEMUSIC for their second album, the follow up to 2014's debut 'The Hunt'.

Since its release, the Bristol five piece have toured with The Answer, Winger, Blues Pills, Von Hertzen Brothers and more. And if that wasn't enough, in association with Planet Rock Radio BlackWolf headlined their first UK tour and were nominated for 'Best New Band' at the Classic Rock Magazine Awards.

So where do you go from there? Frontman Scott Sharp explains "As proud as we are of our debut album, we knew we couldn't stay on the road forever; we needed to get back into the studio. Producing the second album sooner rather than later was always on the cards."

Enter TOBY JEPSON. The former Little Angels frontman is no stranger to juggling life on the road and recording/producing critically acclaimed albums (his production credits include The VirginMarys, Toseland, The Answer, Saxon). "I think this new album will enthrall and impress in equal measure. This is a band stepping up and finding themselves. I'm very proud to be involved" says Toby.

"Toby's really helped shape our perceptions and gain the clarity we needed. What we once thought we should sound like has evolved into what we COULD sound like, which is far more exciting for us and our fans. It's been a revelation working with the man" summarises Sharp. "Creativity is what music is all about and working with Toby and Pledge Music is exactly where we need to be right now. It gives us the flexibility to explore beyond normal conventions and bring a legitimate album to market."

PledgeMusic M.D. PAUL BARTON knows all too well the challenges the music industry faces and they play a major part in championing new artists, giving them the opportunity to present their passion via their ingenuis platforms "‘I'm extremely pleased BlackWolf have joined us at PledgeMusic to bring their exciting new album to the fans! The band teaming up with Toby Jepson is a match made in rock heaven and I can’t wait to hear the results! I look forward to watching BlackWolf achieve great things with the new album and I’m proud PledgeMusic can be a part of it all."

BlackWolf and Toby Jepson are currently recording the as yet untitled second album at Vale Studios. The new release will be mixed by STEPHEN HARRIS (U2, Santana, Kodaline, Kula Shaker) confirming that something special is waiting in the wings.

More news to come...
