UK five-piece anthemic rock act Massive Wagons released their fourth album “Full Nelson” on 10thAugust via Earache Records (The Temperance Movement, Blackberry Smoke, Rival Sons) and is pleased to announce the record reached #12 position in the UK midweek chart!
This is an incredible achievement for the Lancastrian band and charismatic frontman Baz Mills says “Not a chance in hell did I ever believe that some day our Little Rock band would come anywhere near charting an album! Let alone entering at number 12!!! Minds have been well and truly blown in camp Wagons, we write and perform but it’s the biggest most heartfelt thanks we send to the amazing people who have parted with their hard earned cash to buy our music, you have made Massive Wagons an official part of rock history, that’s never going away and we are extremely proud of all of our fans. Thank you so much. Lemmy was right all along….. turns out rock isn’t dead after all, this ones for all the naysayers. Much love, MW X”
Massive Wagons new album “Full Nelson” showcases the evolution of the band’s song writing both sonically and lyrically. From the rock driven opener “Under No Illusion” to the bluesy feel of “Sunshine Smile”, from the slower, passionate and heart-felt “Northern Boy” to the heavier “Robot (Trust In Me)”, this is an album of crafted songs and intense performance. “Robot (Trust In Me)” was also produced by Mike Exeter (Black Sabbath, Judas Priest).
Off the back of an extremely active 2018, and to support the release of “Full Nelson”, Massive Wagons will continue to play across the UK after the summer and throughout autumn and winter. The band just announced further UK shows as special guest to the super-group The Dead Daises. The band played tirelessly throughout 2018 selling out multiple shows (including The Borderline in London), and affirming their live presence on important stages such as: Camden Rocks, Download Festival, Boomtown, and also alongside the likes of Status Quo and Blackberry Smoke.
