Saskatoon's instrumental purveyors of doom Shooting Guns have released the song "Motherfuckers Never Learn" from forthcoming album "Brotherhood Of The Ram." Check it out at Exclaim.ca or through the player below.
The album is currently pending a fall 2013 release date. Commenting on the album, guitarist Chris Laramee had this to say:
"They wept into their beers, They made mountains for others and fell through the analog/ digital divide, Then they laughed upon concrete, upon starlight, Laughter not being only the best medicine, but the essential gift we give. Primitives, REJOICE!"
The band has announced several dates for the upcoming "Fucking Rites Tour" and issued the following statement:
"Heavy-Psych collector-troglodytes rejoice, the season to hunt tar-born colossi returns! Light your torches and drink the rotten brew; it's time again to leave your caves and chase beasts over sonic cliffs to their bloody doom! May the sharpened points of your turntables sink deep between the ribs of our vinyl carcasses." More...
Saskatoon's Shooting Guns has checked in with the following update about working on a new album:
"We've entered the mastering phase of our second album, titled Brotherhood of the Ram. The title invokes an infamous fabrication of local moral panic. Chad Mason recorded six songs to tape at Sinewave Studios in three sessions. We then edited and mixed the songs ourselves. The final mixes are now being polished and refined by the talents and circuits of John McBain (Spine of God - Monster Magnet)."
The track listing will be (with notes from band member Steve Reed):
1. Real Horse Footage - A ragged storm of Bakshi rotoscope green funnel cloud horses
2. Motherfuckers Never Learn - Chasing diesel trains off bison jumps with torches
3. Predator II - Vulgar tectonics
4. Go Blind - Dune hermit eats a glass armillary sphere
5. Brotherhood of the Ram - Pentagrams folding into a cube of metatron
6. No Fans - A cataclysm of flared cones and monstrous drones ending with one of the band's first recordings (a primitive Harmonic Steppenwolf demo from when the band was a 4-piece).
