It has been four years in the making but for fans of retro-infused melodic groovers Gentlemans Pistols, the wait is now over! The band released their new album Hustler’s Row on Friday and in celebration of the new release, we spoke to main man James Atkinson and asked him to talk us through each of the tracks and how they came about. Watch James discussing “The Searcher”, “Devil’s Advocate On Call”, “Time Wasters” and “Private Rendezvous” below.
Gentlemans Pistols have been causing a stir on the underground for a while now with their debauched lyrics, killer melodies and general Northern rock ‘n’ roll bravado. Speaking about the new release, James Atkinson comments:
With this album, we tried to make a record that we would want to listen to; one that was heavy but melodic, intense but catchy, thoughtful but unruly. A record for reprobates and romantics, for gentlemen and hustlers.
