Stormbringer released their third album Born A Dying Breed at the end of last year. The album followed 2016’s MMXIII and their 2015 debut Blood & Rust.

Since forming in 2011, the band have played at the Download Festival and on the main stage at Bloodstock Open Air Festival.

They consist of singer Jimi Brown, guitarists Dom Wallace and Jamie Peters, bassist Darren McCullagh and drummer Jon Paul Quantrill. In March, the band revealed they have already started writing their fourth album and expect to head into the studio in November to record it.
