Like the founding fathers of classic rock and heavy metal before them, Massive Wagons set about building their foundations on the road. Through 250 gigs in 3 years, hitting it hard on and off stage the five piece outfit proved they had the chops to compete with the veterans, and have gained a faithful following the old fashioned way. Guitarist Adam Thistlethwaite says this on the bands origins – “Before the band we were just five mates who loved rock music. We got together and started writing our own stuff – we took on every gig we were offered and became a slick live outfit pretty quickly. The live thing was, and still is what it’s all about... writing good songs and performing them well live, then adding that extra spark of energy. There's no pretence in what we do at all”
On the back of their stellar live reputation, Massive Wagons signed to Off Yer Rocka in 2014, joining a growing roster alongside The Quireboys and Bonafide. The eleven track album titled 'Fight The System' was released worldwide on the 4th August 2014.
Recorded at Axis Studio late 2013 and produced by the exceptional talent of Matt Elliss (Terrorvision/Black Spiders) the album was released to critical acclaim in the UK and Europe, propelled by the popularity of the bands first official single ‘Red Dress’, which featured on Classic Rock magazines ‘Heavy Rotation’ section.
