Welcome Back Delta


Reel in terror at the outrageous tale of a man being hit by a car! Gasp in horror, at alligators that will stop at nothing to bite your hand off! Tremble in fear of a man too in love with his guitar! Tall tales, or factually accurate retellings of events from the past? We can only postulate. But one thing’s for sure, there are many more tales to be heard.

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.

We have been likened to the catchy beats of The Black Keys, and akin to legendary acts such as Deep Purple, Red Fang, Clutch 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 three years of touring, We’ve supported massive artists such as Nick Oliveri’s Death Acoustic Tour, Blackballed, Desert Storm, One For Sorrow, Crazy Arm, Josie Ghost (of The King Blues fame), and the St Pierre Snake Invasion. We’ve also played events like the Headbangers Balls tour, Heaven & Hell festival, Forgfest, Summerfest & Boozey Allday Rock & Metal events across the country.

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

Which got a feature in 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.
