“Forever Wild, Beautiful and Damned” is now released throughout the UK and Europe (US release in May, stay tuned Americanos!); the album’s available from all good record stores (UK & Europe distribution by Plastic Head).
Following discussions, the band has parted company with their former singer and frontman. They have also issued the following statement to clarify the situation for all fans and press following the postponement of their anticipated London album launch party earlier this month:
“We’d like to apologise to all fans and press who were due to attend our London launch gig earlier this month. Regrettably the timing of our lead singer’s departure made it impossible for the launch party to go ahead. HOWEVER! Gypsy Pistoleros continues to go from strength to strength; fans can look forward to seeing a lot more of the band in the months to come and we’ve already been booking through the summer right up to the end of the year. Not only that, we’re simultaneously working on new material for the next album — 2012 is our year and we’re taking it by the throat!”
The Gypsy Pistoleros’ rather smashing debut album FOREVER WILD, BEAUTIFUL AND DAMNED was released on April 9th on HMR to critical acclaim and rave reviews from the rock press – the band is currently in intensive rehearsals and holding auditions to find the ideal replacement in time for their sixth consecutive appearance at ROCKLAHOMA 2012, “America’s Biggest Memorial Weekend Party” on Saturday the 26th of May 2012.
The only band to play at every Rocklahoma since the festival’s beginning, the Pistoleros have once again been confirmed by promoters AEG to appear at the massive open air festival alongside acts like Megadeth, Chickenfoot, Queensrÿche, Slash and Creed. The group are due to hit the stage after Rob Zombie to close the night with a “Bang Bang”…
