We are Boogeyman, inspired by hard rock, blues, jazz, doom and psychedelia, we take our que from the fringes of lost English rock and roll, inspired by Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin, but looking to push those boundaries further than they’ve been pushed before.

We are planning to pull together a full gigging group with plans to begin regular practices right away. We are in the midst of song-writing at present and looking to recruit a rhythm section to lay the foundations of the material which we are very excited about. We are aiming to record a seven track Analog recording at Toe Rag studios (White Stripes, Uncle Acid ect.) with producer Liam Watson next year and distribute our recording through contacts at various record labels.

We are looking for committed band members to build this project with. No time wasters please. Email me at richbendall92@ for more info.
