Turbowolf is a rock band founded in Bristol, UK whose members include Chris Georgiadis (Vocals / Synth), Andy Ghosh (Guitar), Lianna Lee Davies (Bass) & Blake Davies (Drums). They released their debut album (titled Turbowolf) on 11 November 2011 on Hassle Records.
The media have so far struggled to categorise the band’s music, partly due to their diverse influences. However, their sound contains elements of rock & roll, psychedelia, heavy metal, punk rock and electronica.
Prior to releasing their debut album, Turbowolf spent several years developing their musical style in a series of UK tours and shows with the likes of The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster, The Computers, Pulled Apart by Horses & Dinosaur Pile-Up. In 2010 they also toured Europe with Korn & Dimmu Borgir. The band have also been very active on the festival circuit clocking up performances at Download, Sonisphere, Lovebox, Great Escape, SXSW, Boardmasters & Hevy amongst others.
Shortly after signing to Hassle Records in June 2011, Turbowolf released A Rose for the Crows as their first single. The video, directed by Stephen Agnew, was previewed exclusively on Kerrang! magazine’s website. The second single Read & Write featured a heavily psychedelic video (also directed by Stephen Agnew), which was premiered on NME magazine’s website.
An EP titled ‘Covers EP Vol 1’ featuring cover versions of these 4 songs:
- See Through Head – The Hives
- Electric Feel – MGMT
- Captain Caveman – Lightning Bolt
- Somebody To Love – Jefferson Airplane/The Great Society
was released in October 2012.
In April 2014 Turbowolf unleashed a new single, Solid Gold, which was available as a free download on Kerrang! magazines website and also hosted the accompanying video.
On October 27, 2014, they announced their release date of their second album entitled “Two Hands” (April 6th, 2015) and released their album cover and full track listing for the record in late-January 2015.
In October 2014, they released a brand new single entitled ‘Rabbits Foot’ which was supported by BBC Radio 1 as it achieved their rockest record of the week and the track appeared on many of the radio station’s daytime shows, making it Turbowolf’s most listened to song as of 2014. A music video for this was released later on in autumn.The band also announced a tour with Death From Above 1979 and another headlining tour with bands including ‘Hyena’ and ‘Dolomite Minor’ around December in the same year also.
