Nazareth break out into 2018!
NAZARETH – BREAKING OUT INTO 2018!
“From the start it’s obvious that in Carl Sentance Nazareth have not only a worthy replacement but also someone that can take the band forward….Nazareth are here to continue and are on top form.”
(Simon Dunkerley, Get Ready To Rock!, Steelhouse Festival)

At their peak, Nazareth were huge, selling vast quantities of albums and hit singles, pulling in enormous crowds to their shows all over the world.
Like all the best bands, Nazareth came from humble roots. They formed in Dunfermline, Scotland, and played the Scottish clubs throughout the 1960’s in their original incarnation as the Shadettes. The name change to Nazareth came in 1970 and in 1971 the band moved to London to start what was to become a long and illustrious recording career.
Even with the passage of time and line-up changes, Nazareth are routinely hailed as that rare thing - pioneers who became legends in their own lifetimes.
Original singer Dan McCafferty retired due to ill health in 2013 and Nazareth eventually returned to the road featuring new singer Carl Sentance (Don Airey - Deep Purple - & Friends, Geezer Butler (Black Sabbath), Krokus, Tokyo Blade and Persian Risk). Carl has certainly made his own mark with the bands legions of fans across the globe - standing proudly alongside founder member Pete Agnew (bass) and long time band members Jimmy Murrison (guitars) and Lee Agnew (drums). A new studio album from Nazareth – their first with Carl – is in the works.
“Arguably, Nazareth stole the show with good-old hard rock…Pete Agnew, who is a beast on the bass. His son, Lee Agnew, played drums, and long time guitarist Jimmy Murrison and new vocalist Carl Sentance rounded out the group. They sounded like they had been together for decades”.
