FEDERAL CHARM – ‘ACROSS THE DIVIDE’
NEW ALBUM IN STOCK NOW. CLICK RIGHT HERE.
“Federal Charm invest swaggering riffs, sleazy flourishes and cinder-raw vocals with a confidence that is utterly winning”
– Classic Rock
The Manchester quartet, Federal Charm, release their second album, ‘Across The Divide’, on the Wire–Sound label. Available, through Cargo Distribution, in the ever-popular CD format, as a Digital Download (DD), from all the usual suspects.
The band released their debut album to critical acclaim in the summer of 2013. “Jaw-dropping. 8 out of 10″, said Classic Rock. High profile opening slots for, amongst others, Michael Schenker, UFO, Black Star Riders, Ian Hunter and Rich Robinson cemented the buzz and promptly realised a nowadays impressive 5000 sales.
Drawing from a deep well, spanning the classic rock curve from the Allman Brothers to Zeppelin, stopping off on the way to pay a call to Thin Lizzy. That, and with the indie blues of The Black Keys and the contemporary bluster of Rival Sons, Federal Charm are full of melodic twin-guitar twists and stop-start rhythms. Their fresh direction has turned many an industry head, describing the band as having the most cutting-edge sound in recent years.
But hey! Don’t just take our word for it. This is what they say…
“You need big balls to do this stuff justice, and there are four XXL pairs here” – Blues & Soul
“Great riffs. Fantastic musicianship. Phenomenal vocals. Really good songs. Their big sound cannot be restrained” – Amazon
“Federal Charm raid the Delta masters, apply Seventies chest hair and frog march the result into the 21st Century” – Classic Blues
“Probably the hottest nu-blues outfit to have come out of the UK in the last 20 years” – BBC Radio 2
