Vicious Nature join the Bearded Monkey Management Roster!
Bearded Monkey Promotions have all ready had success with working with Left For Red who in 2015 played Bloodstock Open Air as well as got their name around the UK and Eternal Fear who last year toured the UK for the fifth time on their 20th Anniversary Tour.
Vicious Nature have been making a name for themselves since 2012 and have played a number of prestigious live shows in and outside of the UK with one of their most notable being HAMMERFEST V in 2013.
Vicious Nature since getting together have released two EPs ‘FightFor Your Life‘ released 2012 and ‘Salvation‘ which was released in 2014. Since then the VN boys went on to release a stonkingly good ‘Live In Belgium‘ EP from their performance at 2015’s Wizz Fest.
Andy Southwell, Vicious Nature’s guitarist said: ‘We here in VICIOUS NATURE are very excited to be working with Bearded Monkey Management & Promotions, we have been keeping a close eye on Dan and the bands he has worked with and have been impressed with how they have progressed. We look forward to a long and prosperous working relationship’.

Wolfmother have announced a European headline tour starting this April. The Grammy award-winning rock band fronted by Andrew Stockdale will also be releasing their highly anticipated new album VICTORIOUS (Universal Music Catalogue) on February 19th and have just revealed another new track ‘Gypsy Caravan’ which is available as a free download when you pre-order the album.
The follow-up to 2009’s Cosmic Egg and 2014’s New Crown, the eagerly anticipated VICTORIOUS is an electrifying testament to the range and depth of songwriter/vocalist/guitarist Andrew Stockdale’s artistry. Recorded at Henson Studios in Los Angeles with 2X Grammy winning producer Brendan O’Brien (Pearl Jam, AC/DC, Chris Cornell, Bruce Springsteen), the songs are edgy, inventive and uncompromising and rank among the band’s best ever.
In addition to vocals, Stockdale played guitar and bass and brought in Josh Freese (Nine Inch Nails, Bruce Springsteen, A Perfect Circle) and Joey Waronker (Air, Beck, REM) to split drum duties.
‘We wanted to get back to that big sound’ says Stockdale. ‘The album is a balance of garage-y energy and big production. It’s wild, energetic and, he muses, ‘perfect for a festival main stage.‘
Led by Stockdale, Wolfmother have amassed a global fanbase, played to packed-house crowds around the world, delivered show-stealing sets at star-studded festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Isle of Wight, Rock am Ring and Reading and Leeds, and have been invited to share stages with rock icons Aerosmith and AC/DC.
For their induction into the UK Music Hall of Fame, Led Zeppelin personally invited Wolfmother as their guests the band showed appreciation by delivering an electrifying cover of ‘Communication Breakdown’.
