William The Conqueror

Music's Not Dead are delighted to announce a special FREE instore with William The Conqueror!

FREE ENTRY – This is a strictly first come first serve book signing and instore performance in the DLWP foyer. Very limited spaces, so don’t be late.

*NOTE – As this is an instore performance set duration is likely to be less than 60 minutes.


William The Conqueror’s latest album “Maverick Thinker” is reissued on translucent green vinyl to coincide with the publishing of Ruarri Joseph’s debut novel “William The Conqueror”.

Ruarri will be signing copies of the book and the band will perform in-store.

Hailed as an ”instant classic” on its initial release in March 2021, William The Conqueror’s third album is a record of short, sharp shots to the arm. Fuzzy college rock with chops, one foot lingering menacingly over the distortion pedal. Recorded in LA at the infamous Sound City Studios, the trio rattled through the album’s ten tunes at a breakneck speed, capturing the energy and chaos of their live performances, drawing comparisons to Nirvana, Built to Spill, Buffalo Tom and The Marshall Tucker Band.

This first anniversary reissue on translucent green vinyl is timed to coincide with the publishing of Ruarri Joseph’s debut novel, “William The Conqueror”.
