Both of those questions are unknown at the moment.... best guess, late August release, summer shows - 3 piece, Fall Tour - maybe more.....

I've just listened to their new song, I really enjoy it. I get some strong Aerosmith vibes from the melody, Ian's vocal delivery and the instrumentation overall. The production on all of the songs we've heard is incredible. The drums sound massive, they have so much punch but are also crystal clear. This is shaping up to be one of the best modern produced albums I've heard in a very long time. It's such a bit of a shame that they are releasing what is looking like the best album of their career in light of sad circumstances.

Looks like August 30th album release date!

One More Chance
"music video" radio? edit


Full track


My first impressions....

One More Chance
Opens with a distant riff with echo of the room and then the band close up rocks in. This has a very ZZ Top at their most ballsy feel, to me. It has a very deliberate pace. As we hit the chorus it’s backed by screming Brian May orchestrated guitar! That THICK tone that permeated the Sheer Heart Attack album. It’s subtle in the midrange but there is a high whine over it all, like screaming high echoed guitar in the main riff of Dazed and Confused. It always MADE that riff on the record for me. The effect sweetens the chorus immensely. The choruses on this entire album are awesome! The verses get back to ZZ business and hot Ian solo run. Another verse/chorus and it drops into doubletime while Ian dances some serious Billy Gibbons honk around. This should SO segue into Caught My Eye. The rhythm section is PERFECT! The high ride and fills propel as Ian’s soloing weaves in and about. I LOVE that little “weee-ooot” bend. There is also a rhythm guitar fade up near the end that chuggs up and I want it to build, but it’s just a 2 bar tease. I LOVE that! ZZ Queen! Billy May Gibbons!

I don't know where the big wreck fans on this board went but the new record came out. My record got delayed so I haven't heard it yet.

I saw Big Wreck live at a tiny venue in Albany and they were amazing. Tempted to go see them in Boston but there's that whole annoying employment thing.

Wow But For the Sun is a fantastic album, Ian Thornley has outdone himself again. I listened to Locomotive I think first and thought it was good, but I'm a huge, huge fan of some of the deep cuts on this album. Give Us A Smile, Help Is On the Way (with those 4th of July by Soundgarden-esque verses, Too Far Gone, and The Fly and the Bowl are my favourites. I've been trying to think where it ranks in my list of Big Wreck albums, but it's in the top three for me at least with Ghosts and Grace Street. These guys can really do no wrong to me.

Yep it's a good one. Passionate to say the least. If you like Help is on the Way, did you see this vid from NYC? It's the second of third show of the tour. Ian was sick and had almost no voice..... and it was a KILLER emotional night having lost Brian only months before. It's flawed, but is so perfectly powerful! The solos tha emerge out of the chaos are out of this world.

EXTRAORDINARY fan vid.

Thank you for sharing that, BUK, that's a really special performance. The first time he hits the line "I miss my friend" I got the chills. I've never been able to see them live, I really need to at some point. Here's hoping they play Help Is On the Way when I do.

New Big Wreck Single. Featuring the singer from Nickelback.

I don't really think chad adds anything to the song vocally, ian is a better singer than him. The song is okay and is good to vibe to. Different than their last record.

Didn't realise they had new stuff coming out, thanks for the heads up! Enjoyed Bombs Away without being blown away (ugh pun not intended).
