Wille and The Bandits - Steal

Wille & The Bandits – Steal

Nieuw album release van Wille & The Bandits met als titel Steal. Op basis van drie eigen beheer albums en meer dan 200 shows per jaar heeft Wille & The Bandits een reputatie opgebouwd als één van de beste live acts uit de UK. Hun nieuwste album is volledig analoog en live in de studio opgenomen zonder ook maar enige digitale bewerking. De live energie komt krachtig naar voren zonder dat daarbij de dynamiek uit het oog wordt verloren. Het trio krijgt daar bij hulp van Deep Purple -toetsenist Don Airey op drie tracks.

Steal is the strongest sounding album yet from Wille And The Bandits. With three previous self-released albums – ‘New Breed’ (2010), ‘Breakfree’ (2012) and ‘Grow’ (2013) – the band have been building a reputation throughout the UK and Europe as one of the best live acts around, playing over 200 gigs a year. Among the artists they have shared festival stages with are Joe Bonamassa, Deep Purple, J.J. Grey, Beth Hart and Wilko Johnson. The UK trio’s socially aware lyrics and multi-instrumentation makes for the most original and refreshing sound heard in years. Now signed to the Jigsaw label, Steal was produced and engineered by Dave Williams at The Grange Studios in Norfolk. It was tracked to analogue tape with the band live on the floor and without the use of any digital tools. The album sees the band deliver all the excitement and power of their electrifying live performances, while mixing it up with dynamic music choices, from hard to soft, electric to acoustic, a music roller coaster seldom achieved by recording artists these days.
