Gypsyhawk Announces Record Release Show

Pasadena, CA's Gypsyhawk will be celebrating the release of the "Reverly & Resilience" album with an in-store performance at Vacation Vinyl in Los Angeles, CA. The album release party/performance is free and will be held on August 24th at 8:00pm. Additionally, "The Great Food Truck Race"-winning Grill 'Em All truck will be serving metal themed burgers before the show from 6:00pm-8:00pm. The following press release was also issued by Metal Blade:

"Revisiting the electrifying sounds of bullshit-free 70s rock, Gypsyhawk are a breath of fresh air compared to the endless onslaught of breakdown obsessed bands cluttering up heavy music. Marinating their wares in whiskey and weed, they hurl out blistering riffs and irresistible hooks and grooves, doing their damnedest to ensure that everyone at their shows is having as much fun as they are. With Revelry & Resilience, their second full-length and Metal Blade debut, this vibe bleeds from the speakers from start to finish, determinedly putting a smile on your face and compelling you to throw your hair around, no matter how much or how little you might have."

"It's music for girls to shake their asses to and dudes to bang their heads," states vocalist/bassist Eric Harris. "It's good-time rock and roll, and we don't take ourselves too seriously, but at the same time we're not one-dimensional 'yeah-dude-let's-party-all-the-fucking-time!' guys, and I like to think there's something for everyone in our music."

"Reverly & Resilience" will be in stores on August 28th, 2012. Gypsyhawk will be performing as part of the Mayhem Festival Cruise alongside Lamb of God, Anthrax, Machine Head, Hatebreed, and label mates Battlecross, plus many more from December 7th - December 10th.

Gypsyhawk Signs To Metal Blade

Metal Blade Records has issued the following announcement about inking a deal with Gypsyhawk:

"Metal Blade Records is pleased to announce the signing of Gypsyhawk, a band who hails from Pasadena, CA and is part of the Modern Wave of Classic Heavy Metal. Combining the sound of Thin Lizzy, Hawkwind and Deep Purple with contemporaries like The Hellacopters, somehow just a few average dudes with a penchant for riffs have set out to return music to the people that really appreciate it. Gypsyhawk is a band's band, a fan's band, and a flat-out rock and roll band when music needs it most."

The band comments: "Metal Blade Records has been making the hits since before most of us were born. They inherently had a latent inspiration on all of us, cranking out some of the most inspirational sounds to come out after the ‘70s. To be part of this family doesn't leave much to be desired. In the mean time we'll be doing our best to live up to the Metal Blade legacy and couldn't be more eager for everything we've been working for during the last two and half years."

"Gypsyhawk captures the epic 70's hard rock riffs of such great 70's bands as Thin Lizzy and Judas Priest with their own updated twist. We are excited to be working with such a gifted band and look forward to their first album on Metal Blade," comments Michael Faley of Metal Blade Records.
