The Wholls are back with a bang with new single ‘Roll Out’.

Following on from the release of their debut single ‘X21’ the band have had a great reaction at TV and Radio and have already featured on C4 show ‘Future Sounds’ alongside Carl Barat & Blossoms. ‘X21’ was Record Of The Day on Radio X and added to the coveted Radio 1 BBC Introducing Playlist.
Follow up single ‘Roll Out’ continues to demonstrate The Wholls’ distinctive sound; energetic, edgy and accessible. Centered around a ballsy infectious guitar riff, piercing synths, a dirty bass line and a chorus that has you hooked from the minute you press play. Frontman Tordy says “Roll Out was written out of pure determination. I wanted any and everybody to know that we are ready to rock ‘n’ roll and do what ever it takes “I’m sick of waiting watching time go by” It’s about being readier than ever. “If your plans are good then it’s time to let them fly” – time waits for no one, get out there and take what’s yours. We knew we wanted a big rocky beat, riff and a big sing along chorus and the whole thing was wrapped up in a day. When they seem to write them selves like that it just feels right.”
Tordy is garnering a reputation as an electrifying presence on stage, resulting in the band being sought after and exclusively booked to open the show at last years prestigious Miss World in December. Held at The Beauty Ground Theatre in China this is the first time in the events 65 year history that a new band has been chosen to open the show. Past performers have included Nick Cave, LMFAO and Robert Plant to name a few.
The fully supported release combined with a string of dates, ensures The Wholls will be making their presence felt live, on TV screens and on radio stations throughout the UK.
