Following the September release of their recent single Thunder Child, The Bad Flowers we’re named as one of Planet Rock Radio’s “Ones To Watch”.  Thunder Childthe first single taken from the Starting Gun, gained heavy airplay and was described by the station as “pure, dynamic, riff-heavy rock ‘n’ roll delivered with passion and prowess.” This also led to the band being asked to play at Planet Rock’s Christmas party in support of Blues Pills at The Jazz Café, in London on November 21st.

Starting Gun was recorded at Vigo Studios, near the band’s hometown of Cannock.

  • Loved the last ep.I don’t think BRR reviewed it .Buts its neen heavy in my rotation for a while.
    Looking forward to the full lp!

  • Cannot wait to hear this album, The Bad Flowers have really worked hard to get the recognition they are not starting to receive. From what I have heard of the album at the gigs it should be a fantastic album.
