Bigfoot – “The Fear”

Frontiers Music Srl are proud to present the first video from the forthcoming debut album by one of their

latest UK signings – Bigfoot.

 

Bigfoot is a hard rock band from Wigan who burst onto the scene in the spring of 2014. With a wide

range of influences from The Eagles through to Pantera, the group boasts the powerful vocals of

Antony Ellis, dual lead guitars from Sam Millar and Mick McCullagh, plus the thunderous rhythm section

of bassist Matt Avery and drummer Tom Aspinall.

 

Having toured constantly around the UK and performed at festivals including Breakout, Bloodstock,

Hard Rock Hell, Steelhouse and more, the quintet have built themselves a loyal grassroots following in

their home territory. Two successful self-released EP’s also drew the attention of the Naples based rock

powerhouse Frontiers Music Srl, who signed them to their roster as fast as they could.

 

‘The Fear’ was written shortly after the release of the second EP. Sam Millar describes it as “a song

about the fear in our heads and how it can consume your whole life and take over”, while musically

Mick McCullagh states that “it is a Jekyll and Hyde type affair. There’s the gnarly, in your face heavy

rock guitar side of it, then the melodic, anthemic side with big uplifting vocals. It’s very dynamic, which

adds to the tension we were aiming for.”

 

The video for ‘The Fear’ was shot by Shane Green at The Giffard in Wolverhampton. Tom Aspinall

says “we had played there a month or so before and thought the stage would be perfect for the shots we

wanted with the idea of it being quite dark and frantic. We’ve worked with Shane in the past and knew

he would deliver a fast paced and exciting video.”

 

The self-titled debut album by Bigfoot is out on 13th October via Frontiers. Co-produced by the band

with Justin Richards (who also mixed the record), it consists of eleven songs. The artwork and

tracklisting are as follows :

This Bigfoot is no myth, but they are about to become legends.
