Since it's just about time for the Rocklahoma lineup announcement, it seems only fitting to discuss what is going on with the Gypsy Pistoleros. Some deets:
In advance of the release of their highly anticipated album FOREVER WILD, BEAUTIFUL AND DAMNED: GREATEST HITS VOL. 1, Flamenco Rock ’n’ Rollsters GYPSY PISTOLEROS give us a taste of things to come with their Flamencoinfused, glammed out rendition of Ricky Martin’s chart hit LIVIN’ LA VIDA LOCA! With its English translation ‘Living the Crazy Life’, this track is an uncannily appropriate way of capturing the PISTOLEROS’ wild persona - as flaunted across the stages of ROCKLAHOMA five years running. The group has also swaggered its way into numerous sweatbox club shows, notching up a series of gigs including shows alongside BUCKCHERRY, PAPA ROACH, LA GUNS and ZZ TOP.
The PISTOLEROS host a gig on the 23rd of March at CLUB HELL (Fixxion Warehouse, Skinner Street, Wolverhampton) celebrating their debut HMR release. VERY special guests, strippers, burlesque performers, midgets (!)… This gig is not to be missed.
For more details and to view the LIVIN’ LA VIDA LOCA music video, see HeavyMetalRecords.com and GypsyPistoleros.com. From their 2006 beginnings as opening act for American Rockers ADLERS APPETITE in Spain the PISTOLEROS quickly attracted the attention of the Spanish Rock media. Capturing the imagination of Spanish Audiences with a glorious collision of crashing big punk rock riffs on a backdrop of Spanish flamenco breaks, the band has earned themselves a critically acclaimed worldwide reputation for their attitude-laced fusion of Latin Rock.
