Massive Wagons were founded in 2009 in their hometown of Lancaster, England by vocalist Barry “Baz” Mills and guitarist Adam Thistlethwaite. The duo were inspired by the resurgence of hard rock led by bands such as Airbourne and Black Stone Cherry, and their lifelong affinity to classic rock acts such as UFO, Rainbow and Slade fuelled their fire even further.

Since then, the band have, as Classic Rock Magazine put it, “blossomed from local concern to national conversation”, becoming a firm favourite of rock fans and press alike across Europe thanks to their no-nonsense anthems, electrifying live shows, unconquerable work ethic and fun-loving personalities. The first ever Lancashire band to have achieved a UK Top 20 album and in late 2022 released their sixth album 'TRIGGERED!’ Storming the UK charts and bagging a UK TOP 10 album landing at No.6.

Baz explains how 'TRIGGERED!' stands out compared to the band's previous albums: “I think this album is a lot more British sounding. I think we’ve managed to bring our sound more up-to-date, it sounds fresh and exciting. It has much more of a punk vibe about it, but, that being said, it's still full of everything we love about guitar music.” He continues: “There are some very angry, passionate songs in there. We all dug really deep writing this one, some of them were a real labour of love. I think we truly have made our best album yet. I know that's a cliché, but our other albums felt like they had a foot in the previous one somehow, be it leftover songs, a certain sound or style... But I think this one stands alone as a unique sounding Wagons album.”
