Cornwall's finest, King Creature, are hot off the heels of touring the UK with Phil Campbell & the Bastard Sons and Europe with Doro. The band recorded two new singles, 2019's 'Desolation' and 2020's 'Falling Down Again' with rock legend Mike Exeter (Black Sabbath, Tony Iommi, Judas Priest) and continue to work on new material.
King Creature's career has seen them play with Motorhead, Megadeth, Hellyeah and Down, tour the UK with Therapy? and Doyle, and play at UK festivals Ramblin' Man Fair, Planet Rock's Winter's End, Amplified, Boardmasters and Hard Rock Hell. The band have played the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Award Show, performed at Music China in Shanghai, and recently visited the USA to play at the NAMM show and were featured as one of Classic Rock Magazine's 'High Hopes'.
"Brims with equal parts heavy and melodic sounds that mash together heft Black Label Society-style riffs with 90s garage-rock vibe" - Classic Rock Magazine
"Their wall of sound nearly blasted the side off, and certainly drowned out the main stage, ensuring a packed house extending well into the field" - Metal Talk
Formed at the start of 2017, Blind River are a 5-piece heavy rock band, created to bring classic, pure, riff-driven song writing to the fore.
Having become friends while travelling across the UK and Europe as members of touring bands such as Godsized, The Earls of Mars and Pig Iron, the band have brought together the experience and expertise gained from hard work and determination, to give birth to this foot-stomping, first-raising, rock n roll experience.
The band have been steadily growing a dedicated fan base using the tried and tested method of constantly playing every sweatbox bar and beer soaked venue they could find, writing and fine-tuning their songs in front of an ever-increasing audience as they went.
This work ethic led to appearances at Bloodstock Festival, Desertfest, Metal Brew Festival, Hard Rock Hell Festival, and supports for the likes of Grand Magus, Voodoo Six and Warrior Soul during an unprecedented first year in existence.
Their method of test-driving material on the road has created one of the tightest live bands on the circuit, resulting in a 4 day recording session at Middle Farm Studios where the band recorded, mixed and mastered a complete 10 track album with producer Peter Miles.
After the album release in 2018, the band went on to tour with Inglorious, City of Thieves and Merco Mendoza as well as having support slots for The Supersuckers, Anvil, Bonafide, Hawklords, Massive Wagons, Hogjaw, Tony Wright and many more.
The band's 2018 debut release received a 9/10 album review in July's Powerplay Magazine, going one better in 2020 with a 10/10 review for the follow up album 'Made of Dirt'. Full page interviews have appeared in both Powerplay and Classic Rock Magazine.
Their song 'Freedom Dealer' was included on the Classic Rock Magazine 'Best of 2018' covermount CD alongside Slash, Joe Bonamassa, Phil Campbell & The Bastard Sons and Clutch.
In 2019 Blind River continued performing across the UK, test-driving new material during live performances that included Ramblin' Man Fair and a repeat appearance on the Sophie Lancaster Stage at Bloodstock Open Air.
This year has seen Blind River release their second full-length album 'Made of Dirt'. Recorded in just 4 days at The Old Chapel Studio, Chichester, the album was made available across all platforms on May 25th 2020.
