New York, NY – 28th June 2021 – Austin-by-way-of-Toronto powerhouse duo Black Pistol Fireare excited to be hitting the road this summer for a handful of headline dates as well as a July 30thLollapalooza play. The band known for their explosive performances is looking forward to bringing their new album Look Alive to the stage and showcasing their expansive new sound. The news comes as the album’s title track and lead single cracks the Top 30 at Alternative Radio in the US and is currently #9 on the Canadian Alternative Radio Chart.
Look Alive was released on January 29, 2021 via Black Pistol Fire’s new label Black Hill Records – album available HERE. The band’s Kevin McKeown (guitar/lead vocals) and Eric Owen (drums/bass synth) co-produced the album with GRAMMY Award-winning producer and engineer Jacob Sciba (Gary Clark Jr, Gov’t Mule, Warren Haynes) and enlisted the help of six-time GRAMMY Award-winning producer, engineer and mixer Vance Powell (White Stripes, Raconteurs, Chris Stapleton) to mix the ten tracks. The result is an album that sees Black Pistol Fire refining their singular two-man approach, outfitting their explosive, impassioned rock ‘n’ roll with a soundscape that is more expansive. It’s a far-reaching sonic landscape to be sure, venturing out beyond traditional rock touchstones.
While the band enjoyed their time in the studio making Look Alive, they are really looking forward to touring. “I love making music, but playing live, there’s nothing like it,” Owen says. “Every time we hit the stage, no matter if it’s a sold-out show or not, we remember why we started doing this,” McKeown adds. “And our live show is where we cut our teeth and where we honed our craft,” he continues. “It’s a rollercoaster ride, and the stage is where we come alive.” For the most up-to-date information, please visit https://blackpistolfire.com/, check out their new album Look AliveHERE and confirmed tour dates are on sale now and below.
