L.A. Guns are back, and if the lead single from their new album ‘The Missing Peace’ is any indication of what dedicated rock fans can expect from the full record, then Sunset Strip aficionados are in for one monumental revival.
The songwriting chemistry between the newly reunited Phil Lewis and Tracii Guns is put on full display on “Speed,” a racing riff rocker which the band themselves call “a response to the extremely fast-paced ‘I want it now!’ world we are living in.” Musically grounded in the band’s iconic ‘Cocked & Loaded’ sound, “Speed” is classic L.A. Guns – rounded out by a massive solo from one of the veterans of rock guitar.
“‘The Missing Peace’ is truly an album by definition,” says Guns. “It’s a collection of music that I have been working on for about twelve years with various styles of rock music. From blues to classical influences, these are all hard-hitting songs. I am very proud of all of the contributions to this album by other members and writers. L.A. Guns fans are in for a treat.”
The present L.A Guns lineup is comprised of Lewis, Guns, drummer Shane Fitzgibbon, bassist Johnny Martin and guitarist Michael Grant. ‘The Missing Peace’ is set for release on October 13 via Frontiers Music Srl.
