Inglorious to release sophomore album ‘Inglorious II’ on May 12th
UK rockers Inglorious have announced that they will be releasing their sophomore album Inglorious II via Frontiers Music Srl on May 12, 2017.
Freeman Promotions‘ press release states (with slight edits):
“Frontiers Music Srl are pleased to announce the release of the second Inglorious album, “Inglorious II“, on May 12, 2017! The band has also announced their new guitar player, who you can meet in the video below!
September 2016 saw Inglorious base themselves in Liverpool to work on the follow up to their 2016 eponymous debut album. Produced by the band and mixed by the legendary Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith), this new album is set to further enhance the standing of this remarkable band. From the body blow riffs of “Read All About It,” to the beautiful melodies of upcoming first single “I Don’t Need Your Loving”, from the groove of “High Class Woman” to the classic feeling ballad “Making Me Pay”, this is an album that shows the bands influences stem from iconic rock and roll shrine of rock albums from the 1970s – many years before the band members were born – merged with a truly contemporary feel. Driving riffs and instant melodies all overlaid with the unique and powerful vocals of Nathan James.
Nathan James on “Inglorious II“: “It came together very organically after spending time touring together and felt great. We knew we were making an album this time too! We focused on getting our sounds just right so we could get into the studio and out in the least time possible. Between Adde‘s flat in Malmö, Sweden and Colin‘s family home in Somerset, England, this album came together quickly. We spent three weekends in Somerset, writing in a kind of 9-5 fashion, whereby we knew we were at work. Then after a lovely home cooked dinner we would relax, have a few beers and balance out our hard work, the environment is so important to be creative and we had it good!”

2016 was a stunning year for UK five-piece Inglorious. Their eponymous debut album was released through Frontiers Music Srl in February. The album received widespread critical acclaim at press, multiple A lists at radio and a lauded performance on Vintage TV. The band toured across the world, with numerous high profile shows in the UK and Europe – including show stopping performances at Download Festival 2016 and Ramblin’ Man Fair 2016, support slots for The Winery Dogs and The Dead Daisies, and culminating with a support slot for Steel Panther‘s European Arena tour in October and a co-headline UK tour with labelmates Last In Line in November 2016.
Formed in February 2014, the band is fronted by Nathan James, who made a name for himself having sung for the multi-platinum selling Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and Scorpions guitar legend Uli Jon Roth. Nathan was looking for like-minded musicians that desired to make incredible rock music in a very honest fashion. The band’s lineup on “Inglorious II” was completed by rhythm guitarist Wil Taylor, lead guitarist Andreas Eriksson, bassist Colin Parkinson and drummer Phil Beaver.
The band have also announced the departure of album guitarist Wil Taylor right after the end of the new album’s recording. They are delighted to announce that for 2017 and moving forward they are reuniting with original member Drew Lowe on guitar, who is joining the band as a permanent member.”
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Inglorious‘ self-titled debut album: “Inglorious‘ self-titled album is a rock solid release mixing a bit of old and a bit of new. Some may say this is an album a young and hungry Deep Purple would record nowadays. That is my subjective impression. The songs here are in a very classical hard rock vein, but with an additional edge, making it much rougher that any of Deep Purple‘s releases I can recall… All in all, after getting through this record, I have to say that I am very eager to see these guys play their material live. Rarely have I been so psyched to see a opening act, let alone one I did not know of earlier. In the case of Inglorious, I am very satisfied with their debut album, and hoping they will kick ass as much live as they did on their debut record.”
