Rise Above Records has today put up pre-orders for their latest upcoming 7″ by Sir Admiral Cloudesley Shovell. As usual they’ve done a run on clear vinyl limited to 100 copies for mailorder only.

Sir Admiral Cloudesley Shovell have their roots deep in 70’s metal, and have done shows with more known label-mates Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats and Orange Goblin. Pretty heavy, but groovy as cheddar on anything that goes in the oven!

I’ve added a couple of links for some of their earlier stuff down below, so you know what to expect.

Strictly one pr. person of the clear. Also, they only have 35 of the 500 black ones pressed on this site.  As any limited release on Rise Above, these will go pretty fast..

For those in the know, The Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell, are something of a British institution. Though they’ve only existed a few years, these Hastings greasers have gained a reputation as being one of the UK’s most entertaining Hard, Heavy and Rockin’ bands in existence.
The Shovell belong spiritually to a time and place we’d all like to believe still exists somewhere – maybe that’s why their no-nonsense take on the progressive metal sound of the early-mid ’70s is so damn accessible. Further proved by the two new oil drenched nuggets of amphetamine fuelled grebo rock on offer ‘ere.

Following the release of 2012’s Don’t Hear it…. Fear it! opus, the lads mission to destroy every sweaty shithole in sight with their relentless odes to drink, speed, weed n booze has taken more than a few staggering steps forward. Tours with Orange Goblin and slots at key hard rock music festivals worldwide, have left punters jaw-dropped and gagging for more.

For fans of Dust, Sir Lord Baltimore, Buffalo, Rose Tattoo, ACDC, MC5, Budgie & Status Quo.
