PHIL CAMPBELL AND THE BASTARD SONS Complete Recording Debut Album
October 10, 2017
PHIL CAMPBELL AND THE BASTARD SONS (formerly PHIL CAMPBELL'S ALL STARR BAND),the band featuring MOTÖRHEAD guitarist Phil Campbell alongside his sons Todd, Dane and Tyla, plus vocalist Neil Starr, has completed recording its debut full-length album with producer Romesh Dodangoda. An early 2018 release via Nuclear Blast is expected.
Speaking to The Rockpit, Campbell stated about the upcoming disc: "We did the first three mixes yesterday and its sounding brilliant, so we've just got to finish the mixes now and then it's done."
Phil was full of praise for Dodangoda, saying: "He's a local guy from Cardiff. He's done loads of records in the past. He did my guitars for MOTÖRHEAD on [2010's] 'The Wörld Is Yours' album, as when my dad got sick, I had to fly home from L.A., so I finished my guitars with Romesh. He's pretty talented, an amazing lad."
According to Campbell, he wanted to record the PHIL CAMPBELL AND THE BASTARD SONS album locally because he "didn't want to go travelling because I've got a lot on my plate at the moment with a few different things, so I didn't want to go too far," he said. "So we went to the famous Rockfield Studios in Monmouth in Wales and that's only about an hour away. We went there for three or four days to do the drums and then a couple of weeks ago we were back to the studio in Cardiff. So it's all Welsh produce!"
Asked if the upcoming PHIL CAMPBELL AND THE BASTARD SONS full-length effort will be musically similar to the last year's self-titled debut five-track EP, Phil said: "Because of all the touring involvement, I think it's gonna be a bigger sound, I think. Everything will be bigger, but it's still classic rock with elements of punk in it. But it's fantastic — the best album you'll hear in the next ten years! Honest to god, it's huge, the sound!"
PHIL CAMPBELL AND THE BASTARD SONS' last release was a digital-only live EP, "Live At Solothurn", which came out in June.
