Retro-infused melodic groovers GENTLEMANS PISTOLS may sound reminiscent of many of the great unsung bands of the seventies, but they present their music with a completely original and organic freshness all of it’s own. This is evident in a new track that the band have just revealed online in the form of an official video. Watch and listen to ‘Devil’s Advocate On Call’ in all it’s swagger and glory, over on Classic Rock’s website here.
Fans of the Shane Meadows British drama »This Is England« should recognise the knife-wielding moustachioed Banjo playing a lead in the video too! Actor George Newton appears as the hard man who is hunting down the band.
Gents commented on the new track:
“It’s a harmony laden boogie about being disillusioned. The performance was shot at Staincross Working Man’s Club just outside of Barnsley and then the other scenes were done in the surrounding area. David Pickering directed the video and did a fantastic job. It’s basically an updated take on the Sweeney and programs of that ilk in which we are wanted, much like the A-Team, for a crime that we didn’t commit.”
GENTLEMANS PISTOLS have been causing a stir on the underground for a while now with their debauched lyrics, killer melodies and general Northern rock ‘n’ roll bravado. Speaking about the new release, James Atkinson comments:
“With this album, we tried to make a record that we would want to listen to; one that was heavy but melodic, intense but catchy, thoughtful but unruly. A record for reprobates and romantics, for gentlemen and hustlers.“
The band is set to release their groove-laden album »Hustler’s Row« on October 16th via Nuclear Blast.
The track list for »Hustler’s Row« racks up as follows:
1. The Searcher
2. Devil’s Advocate On Call
3. Time Wasters
4. Private Rendezvous

The artwork for the new album was created by John Pearson Illustration:
“The artwork encapsulates everything I put across in the title track, that »Hustler’s Row« is a place for freaks, losers, lovers and those searching for something more from life. So we invite you to join us on the »Row«…“ – James Atkinson.
