Declared "some of their best songs since Gallus!" by Iron Maiden's Steve Harris, ‘Hombres' is the first album of all new music from the group since 2017's 'Favourite Pleasures', which entered the UK official album chart at #16.

The thirteen tracks on ‘Hombres' were recorded and produced by Simon Bloor (Trevor Horn) with mixing by Daryl Thorpe (Foo Fighters) at Morsecode Studios and Strongroom Studio. The record boasts guest vocals from Beverley Skeete (Elton John, Chaka Khan, Tom Jones, Johnny Cash), Mary Pearce (Primal Scream, Lionel Ritchie, Chaka Khan) and Sarah-Jane Skeete (Robbie Williams, Kylie Minogue, Bill Wyman) of The Sisterhood on several tracks, as well as a guest performance on the drums from Joe Lazerus of Twin Atlantic.

Earlier this month, GUN dropped rollicking new single "Take Me Back Home". Stuffed full of riffs, the track is available on all streaming platforms now. Watch the official video here

Vocalist Dante Gizzi comments:
"'Take Me Back Home' is a song that encompasses all aspects of obsession and determination. I had a deep fixation with a driving arcade game called Outrun when I was a kid. The track relates with the idea of the high octane intensity and the will to complete the next level, which was always within reach but always out of grasp."
 

The album is available in multiple formats as both standard and deluxe editions, including on CD, vinyl, and digitally. Pre-order now here

Following their Chepstow Castle concert this August alongside Massive Wagons and three Scottish dates in December, GUN are busy lining up more live dates for 2024, with Maid Of Stone and Firevolt festivals already announced for the summer.

Formed in Scotland by guitarist Giuliano "Jools" Gizzi, GUN have achieved 3 UK Top 20 albums and 8 UK Top 40 singles over their lauded career. GUN has toured extensively over the years, criss-crossing the globe with The Rolling Stones, Black Star Riders, The Cult, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bon Jovi, and more, not to mention a slew of memorable festival sets at everything from Steelhouse to Download to Wacken. 2024 looks set to rack up even more miles in fine fashion.

The rock ruffians latest release was 2022's collection of acoustic reworkings, The Calton Songs, which delighted fans and brought further chart success, clocking in at #2 on the Scottish album chart, #6 on the UK indie chart, and #13 on the UK physical albums chart. GUN also received two awards last November; the band was honoured with the Rock Legend award at Hard Rock Hell in Great Yarmouth and the Hard Rock Café Legends award at the Scottish Music Awards, the flagship event for the Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy charity.

GUN's current lineup consists of original members Dante Gizzi (vocals) & Giuliano "Jools" Gizzi (guitar) along with Paul McManus (drums), Andy Carr (bass) and Ruaraidh "Roo" Macfarlane (guitar).
