EX-THE DEFILED, GRIM REAPER, FURY AND VILLAINS MEMBERS UNVEIL NEW PROJECT BOOTYARD BANDITS

Founded in the Wild West of Worcester, BOOTYARD BANDITS are a bootscootin’ tongue-in-cheek country rock band on a mission to become one of the UK’s “most wanted” bands in 2019.
 
Comprised of ex-members of The Defiled, Grim Reaper, Fury and Villains and armed with an arsenal of anthems such as “Hoedown Showdown”, “Shirt Potatoes” and “Cowboys and Indian Takeaway”, these outlaws will be riding this rockin’ rodeo across Europe supporting pirate-rockers ALESTORM in Feb/March 2019 before ambushing their way across the UK with MASSIVE WAGONS and beyond.
 
By way of introduction, the band reveal their debut single “Hoedown Showdown”, accompanied by a hilariously gruesome LEGO-based stop-motion video which was painstakingly put together personally by drummer BAMM-BAMM.

 
“We’ve been holed up on the ranch for the past year putting this band together, writing and recording the daftest and catchiest country laden rock we could” explains BAMM-BAMM.

“I, a grown man in my thirties, have also been sat in a room playing with LEGO… But for good reason! I’ve been creating the video for our debut single ‘Hoedown Showdown’- The funniest and most gruesome LEGO stop-motion you’re likely to feast your peepers on…

We’re immensely proud of it. We’re super excited for everyone to see and hear it. And we can’t wait to get out on the road and do this thing live!”
