The Quireboys - What Do You Want From Me?

The Quireboys have released a new five-track EP to mark the beginning of their 30th anniversary onslaught.

The year is 1984.

The miners’ strike is in full swing. Apple sells its first Macintosh home computer and Whitesnake release Slide It In. Prince Harry is born……and the band that would become The Quireboys makes its infamous debut at a heaving pub in Putney.

Thirty years down the line and it’s time to celebrate a golden age of music with the ultimate party band.

In 2014 The Quireboys continue to fuse retro-fuelled hooks with rock n roll evolution, the new album Black Eyed Sons is the perfect soundtrack to your summer.

Following hot on the heels of last year’s critically acclaimed Beautiful Curse, the band’s biggest-selling record since their early 90s heyday.

Black Eyed Sons, was produced by the legendary Chris Tsangarides and represents yet another career high for a band bang in form. 

Spike (vocals), Guy Griffin (guitars), Paul Guerin (guitars) and Keith Weir (keys) have spent more than a decade rebuilding and revitalising one of British rock n roll’s best-loved brands. Black Eyed Sons is the triumphant result.

Packaged alongside a CD of The Quireboys’ main stage acoustic set at 2013’s Sweden Rock festival – in front of 40,000 fans – and a live 7 CAM shot DVD featuring the London leg of last year’s Beautiful Curse tour, this is a must-have for long-time fans and new converts alike.

The Quireboys are an English hard rock band formed in 1984 in London, England, with strong ties to Newcastle. When the band formed they were originally known as The Queerboys and later as the London Quireboys in the United States, settling at last with their current name.

“I’ve always felt like I’m 30-years-old,” jokes Spike. “So this is our time. And I’d just like to raise a toast to the next 30 years.”

Todays tune "What Do You Want From Me?" is the title track from the latest 5-track EP, enjoy!
