Band currently on tour in support of new LP coming out later this month; have a watch of the trailer below

Bad Guys, fine London-based purveyors of dirty, great heavy rock, are releasing their self-titled debut album (artwork above) via Riot Season Records on February 18. We'd offer a lengthier description of the music, straight-ahead, no messing, hard-rocking hard rock, but the trailer for the album pretty much conveys everything you need to know:

In their words: "A midlander, a southerner, a Canadian and a Hungarian. Three necks, two kicks and no mic stand. Long hair, grey hair, bald- heads and beards. A shitload of rock. The works. Sounds like a plan. As well as playing with the likes of Circle and Oxes, these guys have earned a reputation for crashing all sorts of parties. They make the heavy stuff and they play it loud, the way it should be."

In advance of the album, head over to the band's Bandcamp for their sprawling feedback-sodden, cluster bomb of a single 'Hurl', released earlier this month - have a listen here - and catch them at the following dates this week:

Wed 6 - The Prince Albert, Brighton
Fri 8 - Shacklewell Arms, London
Sun 10 - Brudenell Social Club, Leeds

Meanwhile, stay tuned to this, as we'll be running a longer interview with the band following the album's release.
