William the Conqueror “Tend to the Thorns” – Listen

Indie-rock trio William The Conqueror have released their single ‘Tend To The Thorns’ – lead track from their debut album ‘Proud Disturber Of The Peace’ due to be released via our friends at Loose on August 4th. Hailing from the North coast of Cornwall, they draw influences from bands and artists as diverse as The Kings Of Leon, The Doors and Ryan Adams, with Mark Guarino from The Guardian describing them as “stomping country rock veering into stoner grunge”.
