METAL BLADE has issued the following:
Eric Harris (vocals/bass) and Andrew Packer (guitars) of the Pasadena, Calif. rock band Gypsyhawk recently stopped by the Metal Blade offices to film a track-by-track breakdown of their upcoming full-length album, Revelry & Resilience, which Metal Hammer deemed as being “no fuss, no frills, just proper rock loud n’ proud” (out August 27). The two-part video is currently available here: http://loudwire.com/gypsyhawk-offer-track-by-track-breakdown-of-revelry-resilience-album/

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. WithRevelry & 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.”
Revelry & 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.
