HMR signs GYPSY PISTOLEROS; announce March 2012 release of “FOREVER WILD, BEAUTIFUL AND DAMNED! GREATEST HITS VOLUME 1”
“The World’s Greatest Flamenco Sleaze Glam Rock ‘N’ Roll band Ever!” is back with a new album collating some of their biggest hits so far alongside new material. Combining their truly unique mix of flamenco rumba which gleefully collides with old school punk and rock ‘n’ roll riffs, the GYPSY PISTOLEROS’ first release on
Heavy Metal Records, “FOREVER WILD, BEAUTIFUL AND DAMNED! GREATEST HITS VOLUME 1” is slated for release in March 2012.
This greatest hits collection will be mixed and produced by the legendary Joe Gibb (Jane’s Addiction, Funeral for a Friend) at the Mighty Atom Studios. Having proved popular with fans across the UK, US and Europe, the band’s signature pounding bass and thrashing drum sound and liberal use of flamenco breaks make the PISTOLEROS more than just a glam band with big hooks, attitude and sleaze – they make them a completely unique listening experience. Since forming in 2005, the band have built up a large and fiercely loyal fan base that has closely followed the GYPSY PISTOLEROS through a tumultuous couple of years. From seeing the band almost sign deals and abort plans for a live album, the only thing missing is new song or two…… But the wait for new music is over!
The GYPSY PISTOLEROS then found themselves making history by being the only band to be invited to play at all five of the massive Oklahoma-based Rocklahoma Rock festivals since 2007, where they played alongside the likes of Motley Crue, Poison and Whitesnake. The band is currently gearing up to tour with L.A. Guns; more details will be announced in the near future.
GYPSY PISTOLEROS consist of founding members Lee and Iggie Pistolero alongside Jeff (Pistolero) Williams and Kenny K Doll.
