GUN SIGNAL THEIR RETURN WITH MASSIVE UK TOUR
18th Nov 2009 | 15:41
Gun are pulling the trigger on an emphatic return to live music with a huge UK tour throughout November and December.
The new look band features the original members (Giuliano Gizzi, guitar; and Dante Gizzi, bass) with new drummer Gordon McNeil and new vocalist Toby Jepson who cut his teeth fronting the '90s hard-rock outfit Little Angels.
Gun’s return has taken their sonic blitzkrieg around Europe during the summer months, playing festivals and club shows, and then onto 19 venues spanning the length and breadth of the UK, which culminates with a performance at the Hard Rock Hell Festival in December.
The cult Glaswegian band helped shape '90s rock music, releasing three seminal albums in Taking On The World, Gallus, and Swagger. Gun also found UK chart success with anthems such as Better Days, Steal Your Fire and Word Up, all of which were perfect examples of Gun’s ability to harmonise a strident and powerful rock sound with an affecting and emotive songwriting core.
With their barrel trained at revival, Gun are set to show the UK precisely what made them so important in the '90s and why, over a decade later, their wiry guitars and towering hooks continue to resonate with as much relevance and poignancy as ever.
New single, Let Your Hair Down has been released exclusively to Rock Radio across the UK for free download on www.rockradio.co.uk and can be heard exclusively on FM in Glasgow (96.3) and Manchester (106.3), as well as on DAB across the north-east of England and Central Scotland, and online across the UK.
