PHIL CAMPBELL AND THE BASTARD SONS To Release Debut EP

PHIL CAMPBELL AND THE BASTARD SONS (formerly PHIL CAMPBELL’S ALL STARR BAND), the band featuring MOTÖRHEAD guitarist Phil Campbell alongside his sons Todd, Dane and Tyla, plus vocalist Neil Starr, will release its self-titled debut five-track EP on November 18 via Motörhead Music.

Produced by Todd Campbell at the band’s own Stompbox Studios in Wales, U.K., and mixed by MOTÖRHEAD producer Cameron Webb, “Phil Campbell And The Bastard Sons” loudly shoves you head-first into its raw, gritty, classic and instantly accessible rock ‘n’ roll charms. Whether it’s the speedy biker-charged refrain of “No Turning Back”, the crunchy catchy jump of “Big Mouth” or the beautiful-yet-bombastic balladry of “Life In Space”, “Phil Campbell And The Bastard Sons” brings uniquely organic life and verve to every last riff and stomp, with Starr‘s sensational vocals ensuring this EP will be the surprise of the 2016 rock ‘n’ roll release calendar.

Neil Starr recently told Kaaos TV about PHIL CAMPBELL AND THE BASTARD SONS‘ debut EP: “The reason it’s an EP is we can get that done quicker. We wanted to give people some music to hear that was our own music, some music of our own that we can play live as well. So the idea was to get something done as quick as possible. It keeps the fans interested in the band, because there’s new songs to keep it fresh. And it’s great for us, ’cause we get to write more songs all the time. Todd, who’s in the band, has his own recording studio, so it’s really easy for us to just go in and do what we wanna do whenever we want, which is great.”

Regarding the musical direction of PHIL CAMPBELL AND THE BASTARD SONS‘ original material, Neil said: “You know what you’re gonna get, because Phil Campbell is the riff god. So you hear these MOTÖRHEAD riffs; Phil wrote a lot of those songs. So there’s elements of that gonna be coming through in the music. Obviously, personally, I wouldn’t ever want to try and be like Lemmy and his style that he does, because that’s one person who does that, and that’s him. You don’t try and do that. I bring my own style to the band, but, obviously, yeah, there’s lots of really great riffs in the songs, like you would expect from a band that’s got Phil Campbell in it. It’s just rock and roll music, I guess.”
