Doomsday Outlaw is a ten-legged hard rock, blues tinged juggernaut based in darkest Derbyshire. Coupling huge riffs and killer grooves with soaring, soulful vocals to deliver timeless tales of heartbreak and redemption, the group is set to show off its distinctive sound to the legions of hard rock faithful around the globe via their new album, Hard Times. Vocalist Phil Poole joined the already well-oiled quartet of Steve Broughton and Gavin Mills (guitars), John 'Ironfoot' Willis (drums) and Indy (bass) in June 2015, after which the band really gelled as a cohesive unit. Willis notes, "Phil is our ace in the hole. Everything else was in place with the songwriting and performance, but Phil has helped take the band to the next level." Lead track "Spirit That Made Me" hooks up a towering blues riff onslaught to soulful vocals, and throws in some Blaxploitation backbeat for good measure! It's an ideal introduction to the musical variety and passion that you'll find on Hard Times.
