William The Conqueror
William the Conqueror's new album Bleeding on the Soundtrack is out now on Loose. Produced by Ethan Johns (Kings of Leon, White Denim, Laura Marling) at Peter Gabriel’s iconic Real World Studios, it is the second instalment of William’s story following on from debut album, Proud Disturber of the Peace, released in 2017 to widespread critical acclaim.
The indie-rock three piece channel classic blues and roots rock through a grunge/indie filter, with diverse influences including The Doors, Pearl Jam and The Lemonheads. Praised for their grit and authenticity by The Guardian and NPR’s Ann Powers, they signed to Loose, joining a roster that includes Courtney Marie Andrews, Israel Nash, The Handsome Family and Treetop Flyers. Their live performances have drawn wildly enthusiastic comparisons to Kings of Leon, Nirvana, Buffalo Tom and The Marshall Tucker Band.
