Campbell is joined in PHIL CAMPBELL AND THE BASTARD SONS by his sons Todd, Dane and Tyla, plus vocalist Neil Starr. The group’s debut album, The Age Of Absurdity, was released in January 2018 via Nuclear Blast. Old Lions Still Roar will be released in various formats (slipcase CD, vinyl, digital) and is now available for pre-order at this location. The album will feature two different covers — a black-and-white one (CD slipcase + digital) and a colored one (vinyl).
Campbell told Sweden’s RockSverige about the musical direction of his solo disc: “It’s not gonna be what people expect. I play piano on a few tracks. It’s not gonna be all totally like MOTÖRHEAD. After many years, it’s just nice to be able to do what I want. I could do what I wanted in MOTÖRHEAD, but we didn’t wanna stray too far away. We’d put a saxophone in when we wanted and a piano and acoustics…”
