The band played Camden Rocks, Wildfire Festival and Ramblin' Man Fair over the summer prior to the 

release of their new album, ‘Heavy Living’, which appeared in September to excellent reviews :


“The songwriting is strong, broadly based in blues-rock but with a tendency to shift gears"  



“London upstarts come on like the next Rival Sons ****”



“A full length debut that’s overflowing with emotive heavy blues. Thrills indeed”



“It’s only a matter of time before they really break through, and it won’t be a moment 

too soon. 9 out of 10”

Dirty Thrills are a young, exciting and charismatic London based hard rock quartet who play bluesy 

rock ‘n’ roll with an appealing filthy edge, churning out endless crowd pleasers that make guitar music 

sound sexy again. 


With lung-busting, powerful vocals from front man Louis James, killer guitar riffs from Jack Fawdry and 

solid low-end grooves from the rhythm section of Aaron Plows and Steve Corrigan, each member’s 

wide-ranging influences also combine to produce a pool of sound similar to current rock icons such as 

Queens of the Stone Age, The Black Keys and Rival Sons.

Dirty Thrills formed after a drunken night of jamming in a quiet village pub in Wiltshire, but what started 

out as an inconspicuous session swiftly birthed an ambitious group with the drive and determination to 

bring the glory days back to the rock scene. Having released a self-titled debut record in 2014, they  

recently signed to Italian powerhouse label Frontiers Music srl. Their new album, ‘Heavy Living’, was 

recorded at Monnow Valley Studio in Rockfield, Monmouth and produced/mixed by James Loughrey 

(The Darkness, Skindred, Sumo Cyco).
