Blitz Kids - Vagrants & Vagabonds

Although Blitz Kids might not have one of the most extensive fan bases in the world, there’s absolutely no denying that they are one of the most hard-working bands out there. Recorded live and in just 48 hours, 'Vagrants & Vagabonds' is a testament to their relentless work ethos, and ...
