Their debut album ‘From the Flames’ was a classic, and with their new release ‘Stand up and be Counted’ being labelled as a “Killer” this is surely set to take The Screaming Eagles to the next level.
The pitch perfect delivery of Chris Fry’s vocal ability; the fretboard skills of Adrian McAleenan; the sure-footed, punchy bass lines from Ryan Lilly and the thudding support from Kyle Cruikshank lead us all to consider this band as rock aficionados. Screaming Eagles have featured a number of times in Classic Rock Magazine including tracks from their debut album on two cover mount CDs, and with the band playing on the main stage at Hard Rock Hell in Wales this November with Black Label Society and Saxon, this is sure to be a huge success.
The fiery quartet is signed to Worldwide-Distributing label ‘Off Yer Rocka Records’, home of the Quireboys and Bonafide, and OYR are ecstatic with the new release. OYR CEO Jonni Davis commented ‘Stand up and be Counted’ is exactly what we challenged them with for the next step and to say they have over delivered is an understatement’.
The Northern Irish foursome recently achieved international recognition from Sony Music Pictures in Los Angeles, who after signing a licensing agreement with the band, featured their first single release “Rock N’ Roll Soul” on the Hit US TV Show - Justified, Season 6 Episode 1, starring Timothy Olyphant and airing to an audience of more than 4 million viewers in the US.
Screaming Eagles have shared bills with the likes of Airbourne, UFO, Black Star Riders and The Answer, at various festivals such as Giants Of Rock, The Great British Rock N Blues Festival, Hard Rock Hell and their biker edition in Ibiza.
To kick-start the next chapter of the Screaming Eagles, the band will be releasing a multi track EP, titled ‘Save Me’ with bonus material including a cover of Australian rock classic “Good Times” featuring guest vocals from Pontus Snibb of Bonafide as well as some live material recorded at Hard Rock Hell, 2 years ago.
The 7 track ‘Save Me’ EP will be released digitally and worldwide on 24th June; with an exclusive new video shot in their home country to back it up.
The new album ‘Stand Up and Be Counted’ contains ten tracks of blistering rock n roll, recorded in the band's home country, Northern Ireland during March/April 2015.
Lead singer Chris Fry commented “I’m extremely excited as when we got the final mixes through it sounded immense. I think it shows a progression, musically, with a mixture of what we do best - the Rock N’Roll anthemic sing along chorus’ and driving riffs, mixed with some darker rib-shaking belters. What crossed my mind was that most other bands always seem to say their newest release is better than the last and of course why wouldn’t they, but this one actually is! We cannot wait to play this album live to the masses, exciting times ahead so watch this space!!”
