Gunpowder Gray

Atlanta hard-rock band Gunpowder Gray will have their debut EP Lethal Rock and Roll released by nascent local label Midnight Cruiser Records (an offshoot of musician Sam Leyja’s more metal-focused Boris Records) on June 7th.

Produced by Tuk Smith (Biters) and Dan Dixon (PLS PLS), the 12” vinyl record rips with the power and potency of early ’70s-early ’80s hard rock/metal firebrands such as Motorhead, Alice Cooper, KISS, AC/DC and Thin Lizzy. The no-frills grittiness and confident directness of the tracks are the marks of true believers. Atlanta rock ‘n’ rollers have numerous chances to see them coming up, including alongside Biters, RMBLR, Dinos Boys, Chaz & Co. and loads of other local and regional powerhouses during the three-night Summer Stunner mini-festival, July 6-8 at the Star Bar, 529 and EARL.
