Indie-Americana trio William The Conqueror today announced the release of their debut album ‘Proud Disturber Of The Peace’ via Loose on 4 August 2017 joining a roster of esteemed label mates including Courtney Marie Andrews, Sturgill Simpson and The Handsome Family.
Hailing from the coast of Cornwall, multi-instrumentalists Ruarri Joseph, Harry Harding and Naomi Holmes channel classic blues and singer-songwriter influences through a grunge/indie filter drawing influences from bands and artists as diverse as The Doors, Ryan Adams and The Lemonheads, with Mark Guarino from The Guardian describing them as “stomping country rock veering into stoner grunge”. Praised for their grit and authenticity by the likes of The Guardian and NPR’s Ann Powers, the three piece have already made their mark across the pond in Nashville performing at the influential AmericanaFest which led to a nomination for best song at the UK Americana Awards and a chance to share the stage with the likes of Jools Holland and Van Morrison.
