PRESS RELEASE 2016
The Lowriders, who hail from Clacton-on-Sea in Essex, have been pulping derisory claims of their hometown by impacting both the music and film industries. Their self-made debut release Fury received high praise and an EP written specifically for inclusion for the soundtrack of the film ‘I Am Soldier’ at the request of fan and writer Ronnie Thompson (Screwed, Towerblock, Green St 3) has really begun to make the music press sit up and take note of a band on the rise.
Off the back of this ascension comes the new self-titled album ‘the Lowriders’ – as lead singer Dave Garlick states, ‘this is who we really are’ – which, given the unwanted slurs, could be construed as a cutting provocation to the ignorant condemners of their hometown, and is a distinct possibility considering the band’s poetic angst and their willingness to carry the home banner. However, unlike their mask wearing naysayers – this statement alludes to its title – a band who are laying themselves bare – exposing themselves to who they really are – both musically, lyrically and in its production – a rare transparency in a world full of unsavoury and overblown garnish – and equally it refers to its ten self-effacing eclectic tracks that are distinctively them – The Lowriders.
The Lowriders acclaimed LP ‘the Lowriders’ has been described, as “a recognizably British, unpretentious hit of the 21st Century Rock’n’Roll, bearing comparisons to acts as diverse as Kasabian, the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and The Who”

The Lowriders are Colchester based four-piece Dave Garlick (vox), Brian
Ware (guitar), Adam Parrot (drums) and Jay Chamberlain (bass). Formerly
known as Freud, their experience of creating an album from scratch and
attempting to release it while maintaining as much creative control as possible
feeds into this, their latest album, Fury.
In 2008 the band decided to turn a new page, leaving their record label behind,
renaming the four-piece, creating their own label (Adrenalin Records) and
finally releasing their first single under their newfound identity - 2010's Big
The album opens with a flood of distorted guitar and driving percussion, and it
rarely lets up. It's a return to the gritty side of rock and roll, when smoke-filled
venues would be captivated by gravel-voiced front men, and simple, yet refined,
melodies and percussion. Fury lacks pretension and represents the work of a
band who have discovered a sound in which they feel comfortable, and infused it
with critically biting lyrics, charting the highs and lows of trying to survive within
an increasingly dog-eat-dog music industry.
With a history of guerrilla gig campaigns, and a flair for the theatrical, 2011 is
sure to mark the completion of the band's renaissance.
Fury will be released via Adrenalin Records on October 31st 2011.
