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."

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. Fans can pre-order the album and listen to the first single, Hedgeking, now at metalblade.com/gypsyhawk.

Gypsyhawk will be performing as part of the Mayhem Festival Cruise alongside Lamb of God, Anthrax, Machine Head, Hatebreed, and their label mates Battlecross, plus many more from December 7th-December 10th. For the complete line up, information, and to book a room, visit mayhemcruise.com.

GYPSYHAWK unveils "Revelry & Resilience" art, track listing, and new single
"Hedgeking" and behind the scenes studio video available for streaming at metalblade.com/gypsyhawk

June 4th, 2012 - Agoura Hills, CA - Pasadena, CA's Gypsyhawk have finally released the details for their forthcoming sophomore album, and Metal Blade Records debut, Revelry & Resilience. The band's distinct personality is splashed all over Revelry & Resilience. Whether it's the edgy and upbeat barroom swagger of "The Fields", the balls out stomp wielded by the serpentine grooves and blistering leads of "Hedgeking" (inspired by George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Fire and Ice series"), the head-bobbing bounce and triumphant air of "Frostwyrm" or their crunchy yet soulful take on Johnny Winter's "Rock And Roll, Hoochie Koo" the record crackles with energy while being wholly devoid of pretension, and on every level it is leagues ahead of its predecessor.

Revelry & Resilience cover art was illustrated by acclaimed artist ARIK ROPER (http://arikroper.com/) and can be seen now on metalblade.com/gypsyhawk, along with the first single, Hedgeking, and a behind the scenes studio video. Revelry & Resilience will be available on August 28th, 2012 in North America.

Gypsyhawk describes themselves as "four metal dudes playing rock and roll and bringing the party every time they get on stage". If one thing is for sure it's that the four guys in Gypsyhawk are not looking for overnight stardom and want to put the work into building something that lasts, and deservedly so. "I really want to take this band as big as it can possibly go but because it's good music that people want to hear, and I want the chance to try different things on the records we make in the future, to really see what we're capable of," says Packer. "We're just going to write the best music that we can and we're gonna write the truest music that we can," Harris adds. "We want to play this music everywhere that will have us, but we're pretty realistic about everything, and we're just having a good fucking time while we can."

Gypsyhawk was showcased as one of Alternative Press Magazine's "100 bands you need to know" for 2012. The annual special—which is now in its twelfth year—highlights up-and-coming acts from the worlds of rock, punk, pop, indie, hardcore, metal, electronica and screamo; the expectation with inclusion is that these bands are poised to have a breakout year in 2012.

Gypsyhawk will also be appearing on the Mayhem Festival Cruise this December with Lamb of God, Machine Head, Anthrax, Hatebreed, and more! For more information, and to reserve a room, head to: http://www.mayhemcruise.com

Fronted in true Phil Lynott style by singer/bassist Eric Harris (former bassist of Ohio blackened thrashers Skeletonwitch), GYPSYHAWK's foursome is rounded out with guitarists Andrew Packer and Erik Kluiber, and drummer Ian Brown.

Metal Blade Records signs Pasadena, California's GYPSYHAWK
Gypsyhawk to hit the road for just over a month starting Sept. 7 in Ventura, CA

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.

Not wasting any time, the band hits the road starting tomorrow, Wednesday September 7, on a headline run that kicks off in Ventura, CA at Zoey's Café and wraps up on at The Launch Pad in Albuquerque, NM on October 13.

"This is our fifth tour and will definitely be the best one yet. It didn't take long for the last one to solidify us as an extremely solid and explosive live band. Now we have several new cities to break in and five brand new songs for all the familiar cities to have something different to gnaw on. And to top it all off the first week includes our good buds Huntress so that'll be a solid enough party that if it were a scene in a film you would have to use Boston's 'Smokin' and Bob Seger System's 'Ramblin' Gamblin' Man' in the background."

Fronted in true Phil Lynott style by singer/bassist Eric Harris (former bassist of Ohio blackened thrashers Skeletonwitch), GYPSYHAWK's foursome is rounded out with guitarists Andrew Packer and Erik Kluiber, and drummer Ian Brown.

MUSIC VIDEO for song 'GYPSYHAWK'

About the band:
In a time when music is shoveled down listeners' throats, GYPSYHAWK backs up the walk with rock, and maybe a little swagger -- but that's all for good showmanship as much as the sake of the song. The Pasadena, Calif. foursome has been honing its sound, sharpening its riffs and showing the promise it holds in the palm of their hands since the band's mid-2009 inception through perseverance, practice, and an ever-increasing number of shows both at home in Southern California and across the U.S.

Fronted in true Phil Lynott style by singer/bassist Eric Harris, having already put in his time with Ohio blackened thrashers Skeletonwitch before moving to California, GYPSYHAWK's foursome was initially rounded out with guitarists Andrew Packer and Scotty Conant, and drummer Joe Fabio. The band's promising self-recorded January 2010 demo caught Bay Area-based Creator-Destructor's attention, which in turn led to the July 2010 release of Patience and Perseverance a full, twelve-track debut mixing melodies, musicianship, monstrous riffs, and the all important guitar solo.

Recorded in April 2010 in Oakland with producer Zack Ohren (All Shall Perish, Light This City), GYPSYHAWK enlisted artist Dan Lerner to create a fitting visual representation of the band's manifest, which Harris and company think Lerner more than accomplished, mixing eerie vibes with hippy mentality, suiting for the band's brand of harmonies and hard rock. With Patience and Perseverance and subsequent early praise for such a new band, GYPSYHAWK hopes to keep spreading the love for melody and riffs – and the solos –and everything that made the '70s era of super rock so fun.

Since the release of Patience and Perseverance, and several tours in support of the record, GYPSYHAWK has finally capitalized on the hard work the band has burdened their shoulders with in its brief, but bubbly and budding, existence. Now supplementing founders Packer and Harris are guitarist Erick Kluiber and drummer Ian Brown, injecting some fresh blood into the four-piece, long-haired outfit.

Up next: another nation-wide tour in support of Patience -- all booked themselves in true D.I.Y. fashion, whereupon GYPSYHAWK is unveiling a handful of new songs which will surface on a second full-length, so fans will get a preview before the tunes are laid down in the studio. Turn down the lights and turn up the tunes indeed!
