November 15, 2012 | O.W.L.S to release Limited Edition 7″ Vinyl and announce live dates

O.W.L.S have announced details of their forthcoming release ‘Hurt Janine / Vitamins’ released on strictly limited edition 7″ vinyl through In At The Eye Records from Sunday 9th December 2012.

‘Hurt Janine’ & ‘Vitamins’ are both taken from their critically acclaimed debut release ‘The Rite Of Spring – EP’ which was released worldwide digitally back in April 2012 and for an hour or two was number 1 in the Amazon Movers & Shakers chart. The seven track mini-monster was recorded by O.W.L.S long time friend Michael “Padge” Padget  whom you may know as guitarist in Bullet For My Valentine in exchange for three American Hamburger Restaurant Breakfasts and a case of beer.

O.W.L.S is an unashamedly “grunge” band based in England’s answer to 1990′s Seattle, Brighton! Well it rains a lot and there’s a lot of flannel around. They are Toby Macfarlaine (guitar and throat), Richie Edwards (other guitar and other throat), Oliver Wickham (bass and a bit of throat) & Stephen “Stuffy”Gilchrist  (drums and absolutely no throat whatsoever).

There’s a little history here too; Toby and Stuffy are also the current rhythm section for Blur guitarist Graham Coxon when he does his solo shows. Richie and Toby used to be in a band called The Stone Gods which came out of The Darkness (Yes, that The Darkness). alongside Dan Hawkins & Ed Graham.

Taking their influence from TAD, Melvins, Alice In Chains, Screaming Trees and yes we’re going to say the “N” word…Nirvana. The tunes are drenched in howling feedback, heartfelt pop sensibilities and an unwillingness to play traditional guitar solos.
It’s all about wanting to remember these bands, far from being all about depression and drug related deaths, were actually about a fun little punk rock scene where everyone got together and threw themselves around to some great music.
That’s what O.W.L.S would like to recreate.

So dig out your old Mudhoney T shirt, throw on a flannel shirt, go to a sweaty little venue and dance around like an idiot for a while.

LIVE

Friday 16th Nov: The Fiddlers Elbow, Kentish Town, London
Tuesday 20th Nov: The Albert, Brighton
Sunday 9th Dec: The Flapper Birmingham
