Two Tails & The Dirty Truth of Love & Revolution is an ambitious album that shows just how far this band have come. Steeped in the traditions of Rock ‘n’ Roll and Blues but blessed with its own clear identity, it builds on the significant success of the debut but marks a clear trajectory both musically and creatively. This is a band with something to say.

Lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Phil Conalane said: “We are very happy with new songs on the new album, we recorded it at home in N. Ireland at our own speed. The songs are a reflection of where we are in this journey , a snapshot. As always with BWC, the lyrics are authentic, real stories and observations. Its rock n roll done by Irishmen, no trends followed, no fads chased. We hope the BWC fans will love it as much as we do”

This album is packed with honesty, swagger and great songs; the next chapter of the Blackwater Conspiracy story is here, and it is as compelling as ever.
