UK Tour Dates – A BIG Thanks

Posted by Luke on November 8th, 2011

A BIG thanks to everyone who purchased Bill Bailey In Metal and for all of the kind comments you posted about it online. Your frenzied clicking pushed it into Amazon’s Top 20 for a while last week too. Proper job!

Thanks are also due to everyone who has already made the Dandelion Mind Tour so memorable and it is still only early days! Your knowledge of wading birds, bouzouki banter, panto style heckling, cockle-based humour and general unpredictable weirdness makes it all worthwhile. Looking forward to more as the tour continues.

Bill Bailey In Metal – Out Now!

Posted by Luke on November 1st, 2011

Today sees the launch of the eagerly awaited album Bill Bailey In Metal, a collection of nine solid rock tracks that were forged for Bill’s headline set in the fiery furnace of the Saturn Stage at Sonisphere 2011. Each of these pieces were then hammered into shape in the studio furnace using the voodoo brilliance of a superb band of musical sorcerers..

The track listing is as follows:

Lazer Gazer
Leg of Time (Metal Version)
Love Song (Metal Version)
Apocalyptic News (Metal Version)
Scarborough Fair (Rammstein Style)
Cars (Metal Version)
Das Hokey Kokey (Metal Version)
Oblivion (Metal Version)
Pot Plant Elegy (Metal Version)

Click HERE to download Bill Bailey in Metal from iTunes. (The album is also available from other leading digital download retailers too).

Bill Bailey in Metal should delight both metal and non-metal fans alike as Bill blends his inimitable genre-fusing, with foreign language frolics and meaningful whimsy. These new full studio versions of Bill’s most popular songs are accompanied by two instrumentals in the shape of Lazer Gazer and Pot Plant Elegy (Metal Version), tracks that usually form the musical soundtrack to the short films that have been a regular feature of Bill’s stage show. During the rehearsals for these sessions Bill’s band expanded and twisted these pieces so brilliantly he just knew that they should be included on the album.

Bill is delighted with this album as he believes that he has finally captured these songs as he has always heard them in his head.

Oh and make sure you don’t miss this intimate insight into the album’s recording process on YouTube.
