Welcome Back Delta


Don’t get them wet, keep them out of bright lights, and never feed them after midnight…

Formed in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire – Welcome Back Delta are a dynamic four piece rock outfit that ooze infectiously sexy sounds. They emerged onto the local scene in 2011, into the bosom of Cheltenham’s less regent establishments. It didn’t take long for word to spread that a dirtier, blues groove had arrived in town.

Likened to the catchy beats of The Black Keys, and akin to legendary acts such as Deep Purple and Queens Of The Stone Age – Welcome Back Delta have been slowly spreading their own naughty twist of rock and roll over the country.

Now well into two years of touring, they’ve supported massive artists such as Nick Oliveri’s Death Acoustic Tour,  Crazy Arm, Tellison, Josie Ghost (of The King Blues fame), and the St Pierre Snake Invasion. They’ve also recently played the Bristol leg of the fantastic Headbangers Balls tour.

August 2012 saw the release of their appropriately named E.P – ‘Growler’. A small EP, with one hell of a bite. They now return a year later with their debut album – ‘Shocker’.



With a recent feature in a national publication, Big Cheese Magazine as a band to watch out for in 2013 and a 4 out of 5 stars review of their E.P

“Saluting the masters of ’70s rock with a shot of whisky before roaring into the distance in a Cadillac with your girl beside them, this is modern blues rock at its fucking finest.”
—  John Damon, Big Cheese (Big Cheese Review) 

“Absolutely amazing; they have such a fantastic set and an amazing chemistry on stage.  You can honestly tell how much they enjoy what they do.”
Jaspa MTM – The Rock Show (Headbangers Balls Gig Review)

“The likes of Deep Purple & Aerosmith? Welcome Back Delta would fit perfectly”
MAG (MusicAtGlos)

So, if you love no nonsense, hard rocking, whiskey fuelled music, with more hooks than a fisherman’s tackle box, give Welcome Back Delta a spin.
