Sound of Guns announce ‘Alcatraz’ single‏

Sound of Guns release single ‘Alcatraz’ on March 8th, 2010 (Distiller Records)


Sound of Guns release their new single ‘Alcatraz’ on March 8th through Distiller Records. The single will be available on 7” and digital download and is the first track to be released from their forthcoming debut album, which will be out later this year. The band have been busy in the studio with the renowned producer/mixer Chris Potter (Verve / U2) who has mixed the single. They also recently completed a string of dates supporting Adam Green with audiences lapping up their performances.

Sound Of Guns are from Liverpool but don’t have the usual sound associated with the city. They have chosen anthemic power chords over jangly guitars and riotous gang vocals over quirky lyricism- an experience of epic proportions.

Having broken through the ranks via BBC Introducing last year, the band have had many highlights including playing at Radio One’s Big Weekend, a main stage performance at Latitude festival and 4 performances at Glastonbury festival. They rounded off the year with a show at the inaugural Sound City festival in Dubai and opening Liverpool’s Music Week.

Their debut EP ‘Elementary of Youth’ was Zane Lowe’s ‘hottest record in the world’ on his Radio One show and they have been tipped for great things from the likes of Q, The Guardian, Rocksound and The Fly. Steve Lamacq also featured them as his favourite new band on his 6music show.

Sound of Guns will be playing the following:
Feb 19th Liverpool The Masque NME Awards Show.
