Ron Gallo SXSW Dates & May Europe Tour

RON GALLO to tour Europe in May, plays SXSW

New album ‘Heavy Meta’ out now on New West
New Video for Kill the Medicine Man

“A garage rock record whose emphasis on lurid fun doesn’t sacrifice depth” – **** The Observer
“Truth telling garage-punk newbie from Nashville … splicing savage wit and cynicism with hopefulness.” – 8/10 Uncut

“Deserves attention” – The Sunday Times


Fresh from releasing his New West Records debut HEAVY META, Ron Gallo will be heading to SXSW next week and then Europe in May. The 11-song set is drenched in aggression and fuzz with themes ranging from his personal ideology on abstaining from drugs and alcohol, self-empowerment, domestication, dead love, not knowing yourself, mental illness and more.  The songs often demonstrate a sense of frustration with the human race, balanced by the underlying hopefulness of an idealistic realist.
Gallo is a “big-haired punk raised in the 90s” and he treads the line between two mindsets:  1. The world is completely fucked.  And 2. The Universe is inside you.  He states, “This record comes from my frustration with humanity and myself, and from my wanting to shake us all.  At my core, I’m compassionate for humanity and the sickness that we all live with, and from that comes something more constructive.”  With the current political and societal climate, now is the perfect time for an album like HEAVY META.  He offers, “Party is over – this is the beginning of true personal responsibility for ourselves and our world and so we must LIVE truth, be freaks, be fearless, be light, love and be our best selves.”
