New Rotosound Endorsees Inglorious, Nothing But Thieves & The Cribs The Sound Of British Rock

(PRESS RELEASE): Rotosound is delighted to announce their new endorsees: British bands Inglorious, Nothing But Thieves and The Cribs. All the bands have been busy this year introducing new audiences to that much-loved British rock sound.

Newly signed Inglorious, formed when vocalist Nathan James (Jeff Scott Soto, Uli Jon Roth, Steve Vai & TSO) brought together some of the finest young musicians in the world. The result is five talented men with a mutual love of & respect for classic hard rock, big guitar riffs & soulful vocals who make incredible rock music in a style reminiscent of great British bands such as Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Whitesnake and Bad Company. Inglorious are one of the new faces of British rock music. The band members use a variety of Rotosound strings: the very British Rotos electric guitar strings R10’s and RH10’s, the much loved JK11’s for acoustic guitar and the timeless Swing Bass RS66LD for bass guitar.

Described by Q magazine as ‘the biggest cult band in the UK,’ The Cribs are a three-piece indie rock band that emerged as part of the British rearguard answer to the wave of popular US bands of the early naughties. In 2012 the same magazine honoured them with their ‘Spirit Of Independence’ award and a few months later NME followed with the prestigious ‘Outstanding Contribution To Music Award’. While on their first real tour of the UK since ‘For All My Sisters’ the new endorsees used Rotosound’s RH10 Blues 6 String Electric guitar strings and the industry standard RS66LD Swing Bass.

The new endorsees join a roster that includes Billy Sheehan, Duff McKagan, Doug Wimbish, Guthrie Govan, Geddy Lee, Florence & The Machine, Mikey Demus, Noel Gallaghers High Flying Birds, and in the past Jon Entwistle, Jimi Hendrix and many, many more.
