Inglorious announce UK and Ireland tour dates


Inglorious have announced a UK and Ireland tour which will take place later this year.

They’ve lined up the dates in support of their second album Inglorious II which was released earlier this month via Frontiers Records.

It was produced and mixed by Kevin Shirley who said Inglorious were the best British band since Led Zeppelin.

Asked what he thought of Shirley’s comments, vocalist Nathan James recently told Classic Rock: “Incredible. Over the last few years we have had some high praise indeed but when the guy with the ears who has probably told a lot of my heroes to ‘have another go at that’ comments, it means so much.

“The text messages I was getting from Kevin during the mix were honestly so humbling, and to see him excited to mix our album was a real compliment in itself.

“He doesn’t seem like the type of bloke to lie about his opinion. That’s why we wanted him to mix it – he has a great attitude to mixing and we all felt very proud giving him our raw music.”

Ahead of the newly announced dates, James, bassist Colin Parkinson, drummer Phil Beaver and guitarists Andreas Eriksson and Drew Lowe have several live shows planned over the summer.
