GYPSYHAWK announce early fall tour with Scorpion Child, Kadavar, Wilson and Mothership!
- August 16th, 2013 –
Gypsyhawk will be hitting the road again next month with Scorpion Child, Kadavar, Wilson and Mothership. The tour begins on September 16 in Chicago and is scheduled to wrap up on October 5 in Brooklyn, NY. The confirmed list of dates is available ONLINE and below.
Gypsyhawk bassist/vocalist Eric Harris comments: “Along our traveling trials of touring, we happened across an insatiable city known as Texarkana, AR. It was there that we were harbored and befriended by Joshua Foster, who introduced us to some good ass, long term friends. You may know them as Scorpion Child and Mothership! We’re SO excited! We’ve never toured with so many close friends before. And we’ve just recently had the pleasure of sharing the stage with those vintage Kraut rockin’ mother fuckers in Kadavar. Y’all wanna know what a real party is like? Come to one these shows and DEFEND GOOD TIMES FOR LIFE! D.E.O!”
Guitarist Ben Robbins will be performing with Gypsyhawk on the Scorpion Child tour. The Los Angeles-based shredder has previously performed with the band Jameson.
Gypsyhawk plays electrifying, bullshit-free 70s rock and are a breath of fresh air in heavy music. Marinating their wares in whiskey and weed, they hurl out blistering riffs and irresistible hooks and grooves on “Revelry & Resilience,” their second full-length and Metal Blade debut. “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. I like to think there’s something for everyone in our music.”
Gypsyhawk recently revealed a new video: “Silver Queen”, which can be viewed at metalblade.com/gypsyhawk. The band’s previous two music videos, “State Lines” and “Hedgeking” are also available there. Gypsyhawk’s latest album, “Revelry & Resilience,” is available worldwide now on Metal Blade Records.
“You won’t find a more charismatic band in their subgenre.” Decibel Magazine
“far more stylistic and musical flare than most, dancing madly backwards with the ghosts of classic Allman Brothers and Thin Lizzy while their dual-harmony axe-attack take care of business like Bachman-Turner Overdrive” Zero Tolerence Magazine
“Pasadena’s Gypsyhawk deftly blend metallic guitars and fantasy/science-obsessed lyrics with a rock and roll boogie swagger.” LA Weekly
