THE BAD FLOWERS formed from the depths of the Black Country in 2014 comprised of lead vocalist and guitarist, Tom Leighton, whose signature riffs, fuzz emotive guitar and pure vocals have distinctive sound unlike anybody else. Bassist Dale Tonks provides a deep heavy groove and tasty bass runs that underpins Karl Selickis’ chest pumping drums and impeccable rhythmic feel.
The combination of these three formidable players makes THE BAD FLOWERS a force to be reckoned with, forging a sound steeped in the raw, passionate energy of the Black Country’s 70’s heroes, but, at the same time, keeping the vibe very much in tune with the 21st century rock sensibilities.
In the formative years of 2014/15 THE BAD FLOWERS gained a reputation for their energetic live shows in local pubs, clubs and venues cutting their teeth with the local older and more experienced musicians and soaking up as much stagecraft as possible. During this productive time of wild abandon, The Bad Flowers released the Vicious Lullabies EP and Killing Time EP’s.
That same year was a breakthrough in terms of live shows. THE BAD FLOWERS left the local venues in a wake of blood, sweat and ringing ears when they opened for Canadian rockers The Sheepdogs in Birmingham, then onward to extensive tours up and down the UK to packed venues with Crobot, Jared James Nichols and Scorpion Child, plus an appearance at Hard Rock Hell Festival.
2017 has since seen THE BAD FLOWERS continue their relentless live schedule by supporting the likes of Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown, Toseland and Dan Baird and The Original Sin.
The highly anticipated debut album, titled Starting Gun, is set for release in early 2018.
