NEW SINGLE ‘SILENT LOVERS’ – OUT NOW
FREE LIVE CONCERT IN GLASGOW – SEPTEMBER 14TH
NEW ALBUM ‘FAVOURITE PLEASURES’ RELEASED SEPTEMBER 15TH
+ DECEMBER LIVE DATES / CO HEADLINE SHOWS WITH INME
GUN have today released ‘Silent Lovers’, the second single taken from their forthcoming album ‘Favourite Pleasures’, due for release on September 15th.
One of the first songs written for the new album, ‘Silent Lovers’ is GUN’s homage to David Bowie. Written shortly after his passing, as most of us did, the band delved back into his extensive back catalogue – reigniting their love for his music. Frontman Dante Gizzi explains “The one thing we noticed most of all when re-listening to his songs was his ability to completely alter the style of writing while maintaining that Bowiesque feel. A unique and difficult thing to pull off. Something we’ve always wanted to achieve with GUN.”
Always ones to look after their fans, GUN have announced a special FREE live show at St Luke’s in Glasgow on September 14th, the day before ‘Favourite Pleasures’ is released. The band will play an hour-long set, showcasing tracks from the new album, with a few fan-favourites thrown in for good measure. Only 400 tickets will be made available. Visit gun.tmstor.es for more info.
‘Favourite Pleasures‘, GUN’s seventh studio album, stands proudly alongside the very best of their work. Informed by a back-to-basics approach tempered by an innate sense for melody, the record was made in the band’s own Morse Code studios in Paisley. It’s an album that dances on a knife-edge, one that can turn on a single note from the raw pain of emotions hitting the rocks, to an unbridled celebration of hedonism.
