Hailing from Lancaster, the five-piece anthemic rock act Massive Wagons succeeded in their effort to conquer the UK chart with their brand new record “Full Nelson”, released on 10thAugust via Earache Records (The Temperance Movement, Blackberry Smoke, Rival Sons).
Massive Wagons are now firmly in the top 40 in the UK Album Chart at #16, the record is also #1 in the UK Rock Album Chart, #2 in the UK Indie Chart and #4 in the UK Vinyl Chart. This is an outstanding titanic achievement for the Lancastrian band.
Massive Wagons’ guitarist Adam comments: “This is gonna take some time to truly sink in. The bar was set high at hitting the top 40, well, that target was smashed and then some! To hit the top 20 at number 16.. it’s just incredible. We have worked hard, but it’s down to the collective efforts of our team, the support of our families and the ever growing army of supporters who do us proud at every turn, this victory belongs to all of us, we did this together. Thankyou from the bottom of our hearts. We’ll see you from the stage soon. 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.
