ABOUT

In April 2014, Get Your Gun is releasing their debut album “The Worrying Kind”.

The Danish trio was formed in 2008 by brothers Andreas and Simon Westmark along with Søren Nørgaard. Upon releasing a 7” single (Death Rattle/Ghost of Scandinavia 2011), “EP” in 2012 and contributing to the first edition of The Reverb Conspiracy's compilation, Get Your Gun has been spending the majority of 2013 writing, recording and finishing the debut album, which has been recorded in Aarhus Lydstudie. The first single entitled “Black Book” will be available in the beginning of 2014.

Get Your Gun's sound is not a forced practice of style, but something that originates from the moment the band was formed. The musical universe is like the band's three dismal men: born of a wind-swept peripheral region with wide expanses and narrow outlooks. A blend between the weight and aggressive nature of stoner-rock, the nordic melancholy, and the darkest tales of country- and folkmusic. The result is a constant duality between authority and fragility, where the complexity of simplicity is given the pride of place and where it is cut to the bone, until it hurts the most.

With insisting and uncompromising live-shows in which every tone and note is conducted as it was the last, Get Your Gun will guide you into their darkness to show you the light.

With 7 new tracks on the coming record, Get Your Gun is expanding their universe with both some of the heaviest and most unobtrusive songs they have ever written. The 7 songs on the record are different reactions to a condition and a time where individuality is the goal but the price is loneliness. It is the sound of an individual balancing on a knife's edge between resignation and strength of will.

Get Your Gun is playing Roskilde Festival and SPOT Festival among others in 2014. They have been touring in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, Estonia and Russia and played festivals such as Tallinn Music Week, BlueSPOT Festival, Rencontres Trans Musicales and Reeperbahn Festival. In the end of 2011, Get Your Gun was elected as one of Denmarks most interesting new bands by DR P6 Beat, and the singles “Ghost of Scandinavia” as well as “Staying for a While” have both been given massive airplay on the radio channel.
