Corgan Suicide Review of Gypsyhawk ” Reverly and Resilience”

By on October 1, 2012
 
“Gypsyhawk is four metal dudes playing rock and roll and bringing the party every time they get on stage,” states guitarist Andrew Packer, and there is perhaps no better way of surmising the spirit and sound of the Pasadena quartet. Revisiting the electrifying sounds of bullshit-free 70s rock, the band are a breath of fresh air compared to the endless onslaught of breakdown obsessed bands clutteri

ng 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. With Revelry & 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.”If one thing is for sure it’s that the four guys in Gypsyhawk are not looking for overnight stardom and want to put the work into building something that lasts, and deservedly so. “I really want to take this band as big as it can possibly go but because it’s good music that people want to hear, and I want the chance to try different things on the records we make in the future, to really see what we’re capable of,” says Packer. “We’re just going to write the best music that we can and we’re gonna write the truest music that we can,” Harris adds. “We want to play this music everywhere that will have us, but we’re pretty realistic about everything, and we’re just having a good fucking time while we can.”

Corgan: Oh Gypsyhawk how I love thee… The band is classified as classic heavy metal but in my opinion is just really fucking good rock n’ roll!!!! I was just recently introduced to them and their new album “Revelry and Resilience” that was released  on August 28th. This album is amazing! I will be getting all their albums very soon. I can’t even pick a favorite song from their new album. You’ll just have to listen for yourself. They are currently on tour right now and I plan on checking them out in Atlanta, GA on November 21st. Seriously they are probably my new favorite band!
