MIDLANDS-based hard rock band The Bad Flowers and Stockport-based blues rockers Federal Charm will co-headline a Planet Rock Presents tour in the UK, stopping at the Newcastle Think Tank on Thursday 27th September.

Special guests are Those Damn Crows.

The Bad Flowers meteoric rise to fame kicked off when the band released their critically acclaimed debut album Starting Gun in February. The album spawned to radio tracks on Planet Rock Thunder Child and Hurricane. The band embarked on a UK tour supporting Stone Broken and Jared James Nichols the same month.

This summer, The Bad Flowers play several music festivals including Steelhouse, Stone Free, Hard Rock Hell, followed by Planet Rockstock in December.

Their recently released debut album Starting Gun is the follow up to 2016’s self-titled EP and shows the great progression of song writing and musicianship of The Bad Flowers over the past two years.

The band were named as one of Planet Rock Radio’s “Ones To Watch”. Thunder Child, the 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.”

The band’s next single to be serviced to rock radio is Who Needs A Soul which will be accompanied with an official music video.

The band have received rave reviews and press coverage in the rock press including Powerplay, Planet Rock Magazine, Rock Society, Fireworks HRH Magazine. The band features Tom Leighton (vocals, guitar), Dale Bollard Tonks (bass) and Karl Selickis (drums).

After a very successful Planet Rock Roadstars tour with SIMO and Aaron Keylock in December 2016, the Federal Charm worked on some new songs and recorded some demos in an away-from-it-all cottage in Wales. The demos ultimately led to a line-up change a few months later. Founding members Paul Bowe (guitar) and L.D. Morawski (bass) recruited 23-year-old Southampton vocalist, Tom Guyer, and top Manchester drummer, Josh Zahler.

Explosions ensued the minute they hit the studio for rehearsals and song-writing. With a new energy, the revitalized team of Bowe, Morawski, Guyer, Zahler set to work, over the following months, bonding, writing and recording, and opening the shows for UFO, Y&T and for Thin Lizzy’s legendary Brian Downey and his band Alive And Dangerous.

Those Damn Crows are a hard-hitting five-piece rock band from Bridgend, South Wales. Performing at festivals such as Camden Rocks, Steelhouse, HRH, Giants Of Rock, Planet Rock’s Winters End, and Ramblin Man to name a few. TDC hit the scene when their single “Fear The Broken” premiered through Kerrang.com, and have recently signed a world-wide record deal with Earache Records. Their mission is simple - to write great songs, play as many shows as possible and become another successful Welsh export......Those Damn Crows. Band members include Shane Greenhall (vocals), Ian 'Shiner' Thomas (guitar), Ronnie Huxford (drums), Lloyd Wood (bass) and David Winchurch (guitar).
