INTERVIEW: Cleveland based alternative rock band, WELSHLY ARMS talk ahead of London Scala show

Cleveland based alternative rock band, Welshly Arms, continues to captivate audiences across the globe with their fiery brand of gospel-tinged, blues rock, evident in their debut album ‘No Place Is Home’, spawning the platinum-selling single ‘Legendary’. The band hit the road across the UK with The Glorious Sons this November. Catch their incendiary live show at London’s Scala on 7th November. 

They say:  “Even though we’re from Cleveland, OH playing in the UK always feels like coming home from a musical perspective. We grew up with so many UK influences like The Clash, Oasis, The Zombies, Led Zeppelin, Cream, Radiohead, we could honestly go on and on. We’re looking forward to these dates and sharing the stage with our good friends The Glorious Sons who we’ve toured extensively with in the US as well.”

The band who released their acclaimed debut album ‘No Place Is Home’ in 2018, including the Platinum-selling single ‘Legendary’, have appeared at Reading and Leeds Festival and these dates follow their previous visit, a sold-out European tour culminating in a wonderful show at London’s The Dome in November 2018. XS Noize caught up with the band for a Q&A.
