A behind-the-scenes video for Hedgeking was recently released and can be seen now HERE. The finished product, which brings to life the story behind the song, shows the Hedgeking (played by Grundy) casting aside his crown and taking up a life of selling his sword, warring and whoring.

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.”
Revelry & Resilience is out now worldwide! Order your copy and and listen to the first single Hedgeking at metalblade.com/gypsyhawk.
“a stunning blend of fantasy and science fiction-inspired lyrics set against a backdrop of booty-shaking Thin Lizzy-inspired heavy rock” LA Weekly
“recalling the pounding ’70s shredding of UFO, or even Thin Lizzy (especially on a track like “The Fields”).” The Onion’s AVClub.com
“An album that’s easily equal to the band’s excellent debut, Gypsyhawk’s ‘Revelry & Resilience’ finds the band discovering more of its own voice, while still honoring the sounds of the 1970s.” MetalUnderground.com
