W.A.L.K.E.R announce new drummer Alex Sanchez
Dublin, Ireland rockers W.A.L.K.E.R featuring frontman Glen Walker and guitarist Kelan Hughes have announced that they have a new drummer by the name of Alex Sanchez.
The following message was posted on W.A.L.K.E.R‘s Facebook page earlier today:
We’ve been quiet for a while… did you miss us? Well we’re back!
We’d like to wish our former drummer Ali Cruz all the best with his future endeavours and welcome Alex Sanchez to the W.A.L.K.E.R. family!
Next stop? November 4th at the Grand Social. We’ll see you there! https://fb.me/e/2mRhMJEtO“
“W.A.L.K.E.R‘s two main men — frontman Glen Walker and lead guitarist Kelan Hughes — were not even close to being born in the ’80s and in Hughes‘ case, almost not even in the ’90s, but that hasn’t stopped the duo from coming up with arguably the most ’80s sounding album featured on the Sleaze Roxx’s Top Ten Albums of 2019. The Irish rockers were aiming to release an album with “all killer, no filler” and that’s exactly what they have done with their aptly titled EP Bringing Rock Back. From the vintage Tesla sounding “Dreaming of You” to the riff laden title track to the party anthem “Time To Party”, W.A.L.K.E.R deliver one great song after another on their five-song EP. The great news is that the group was recording its debut full-length album when I interviewed Walker and Hughes a few weeks ago and the new album will consist of brand new songs. As Walker pointed out to me, “We gave you a taste. Now you’re ready for the main course. If you like Bringing Rock Back, our upcoming album will blow you away.” I can’t wait for that to happen!”
