Ballsy, bluesy, hard rock n’ roll”



Up n’ coming UK rockers WESTERN SAND have been confirmed as the opening band on BLACK STAR RIDERS UK/IRE tour later this year.

The four-piece, southern hard rock revival group from Bournemouth beat off stiff competition to get the slot on one of the most talked about tours of 2013 and they’re hell bent on blazing trails come this November.

Frontman/guitarist Tyler Hains enthuses “We’re nervous, excited but more than anything absolutely stoked to be a part of such a prestigious tour. To be sharing the stage with some of the finest musicians in the business is a real honour and we can’t wait for the tour to kick off”.

WESTERN SAND have just released their self titled debut EP and it’s a scorcher. 4 tracks of ballsy rock n’ roll with more swagger than jagger and a cheeky glimpse of what this young band have to offer demonstrates what to expect later this year.

The new ep sees the band take their cue from the likes of Lynyrd Skynrd, Thin Lizzy, Led Zeppelin and Metallica; wrapped up in their own unique vision on the ever popular classic rock genre.

This latest tour announcement continues the bands upward momentum; already Western Sand have supported the likes of Nazareth, Reckless Love, Jettblack, The Treatment, Heavens Basement and Voodoo Six.
