Bad Llama


We played the last Bad Llama single Apocrypha on the Radio KC Indie Show in November of last year to much critical comment, so it's no surprise we bring you news of their latest single Crooked Empire as a precursor to the imminent release of their EP of the same name. 

The single will be getting a pre-release spin on The Indie Show of 18.2.18 so remember to tune in from 5-7pm.


Bad Llama are an alternative rock/metal band formed in 2016 based in Burton Upon Trent. They are both aggressive and melodic in their approach to song writing finding a unique balance in within their sound.






No automatic alt text available.Bad Llama blend a mixture of 90s rock/metal with modern industrial and progressive sounds. Their music delivers powerful choruses, emotive vocals, funky basslines, diverse beats and melodic guitars. 

On the song, the band say...

 "Crooked Empire explores the atrocities caused by possession and deception. The lyrics delve into how a person can prey on an individuals vulnerability, manipulating them into doing whatever they say for their own sadistic desires. Crooked Empire embodies the aftermath caused by a self appointed individual who uses their false authority to brainwash an easily influenced group of people".

Now after performing at numerous venues including O2 Academy 3 in Birmingham, Rock City in Nottingham, The Slade Rooms in Wolverhampton and being shortlisted for Ynot Festival 2017, they are set to carry on growing across the UK.  

With the release of quality tracks like Apocrypha and the even more addictive Crooked Empire as well as an increasingly impressive live pedigree, that's highly achievable.

Bad Llama consist of Kyle Jordan (Vocals), Lewis Hutchings (Bass), Gaz Waddell (Drums), Dan Houlbrooke (Guitar) and Sam Wyatt (Guitar and Backing vocals).
