Christmas eve 2016. A day that should be remembered for all the good things in life, family, friends and good cheer. However for many, including the guys in Massive Wagons it will also be remembered as the day Rick John Parfitt was no longer with us. Back To The Stack is Massive Wagons way of saluting their hard rocking, heavy riffing hero and sending him off their way, and what better way could there be?
Back To The Stack is the first brand new track by the Lancashire five piece to be released as a single since their critically acclaimed album Welcome To The World in April 2016, and the first new music to emerge from the writing sessions for album number 4. As well as writing the band continue to play heavily around the UK and into Europe during the run up to festival season.
The lads tribute to Rick was aired live for the first time to a sold out Manchester Ritz while touring in support of the rock legends The Wildhearts. The packed theatre most certainly approved, chanting Ricks name and raising their glasses to the main man, such is the love for the heaviest right hand in rock.
Back To The Stack is set for worldwide release Monday 24th April, along with the accompanying HD Video. Proceeds are going directly to The Teenage Cancer Trust.
Rest in peace Rick John Parfitt.
