Artist:             Stray

Title:               About Time

File:                 Rock

“Stray’s twenty albums are so consistently good as a catalogue to legitimately be labelled classics … Stray’s diversity, a signature pace-changing melodic heavy sound richly rooted in blues rock with heart-felt lyrics, shines again here.”  The Strange Brew

“Every song on this album hits the mark, making it a must-listen for both old fans and newcomers. If you’ve been a fan of Stray, this album is a testament to their enduring talent.”  Now Spinning Magazine

“ … a heartfelt album with a sense of time and place, rather than just the latest release in the non-stop Spotify style conveyor belt …  matches Del Bromham’s musical diversity with his band’s inherent ability to rock. Get Ready To Rock

“…Del’s kept the flame alight, with ‘About Time’ up there with the best of the band’s releases…”  R’nR Magazine

Stray is the epitome of the rock ‘n roll survivor.

The British band, fronted by guitarist Del Bromham, has been about for much of the past half century in which time it’s recorded a slew of acclaimed albums featuring standouts such as “Time Machine” and “All in Your Mind”, both faves on rock compilations down through the ages.

2023’s ‘About Time’ keeps the flame burning. It’s a standout release packed with pile drivers counterpointed by slower numbers and as always, the dabs of psych and prog that’s long hallmarked the eclectic nature of the band’s output.

All compositions are by Bromham: “I favour songs with purpose and narrative and have some pretty strong feelings about social injustice. It’s all about messaging entertainment”, he says.

Release of ‘About Time’ coincides with publication of Bromham’s autobiography, the aptly named ‘Rock ‘N Roll Survivor’.

Stray play UK dates later this year (2023).
