GYPSY PISTOLEROS RELEASE NEW ALBUM
ALONGSIDE NEW VIDEO WITH HEAVY ROCKA RECORDINGS

Gypsy Pistoleros unleash their highly anticipated and already critically acclaimed new, full album
‘The Mescalito Vampires’ released on Special Limited Edition Double 10″
(Dusk n Dawn) Moon coloured Vinyl’s & gatefold sleeve (Includes 2 extra tracks)
via Heavy Rocka Recordings on 14th August!

Gypsy Pistoleros are best described as being the ideal house band for the fictitious Titty Twister bar of Rodriguez’s From Dusk till Dawn.  Between the nods to Morricone’s tense, tumbleweed atmospheres and the Gypsy Kings’ manic Mediterranean energy, a New York Dolls raw glam spark, and a surplus of prime G ‘n’ R attitude, the Pistoleros’ sonic style is captured to the full with the release of an album they have always threatened!

Released on CD Digipak and special limited edition Double 10″ coloured Vinyl
 Is this Latin Rocks Appetite for Destruction? The Mescalito Vampires was recorded in Black Tree Recording Studios, Tardebigge, Worcestershire with guitarist Mark Westwood engineering & producing (The Beat, Dogs D’Amour, Chumbawamba, Arena, Hazel O’Connor, Dreadzone). 

The swashbuckling renegade flamenco rock rumba punk ‘n’ roll pioneers release the album they always promised to make, this album sees Gypsy Pistoleros fully embracing their fiery flamenco/rumba passion & crossover punk rock ‘n’ roll leanings!

 

PRE-ORDER ALBUM HERE

“The Pistoleros are a band who live up to their own hype, as they tick all of the boxes they attribute to themselves, and then some, with some of the most infectious, sleaziest, dirtiest, rock ‘n’ roll vibes around, all mixed with enough dust to bury a spaghetti western set several times over.”

Shots fired as all hell breaks loose ahead of the Gypsy Pistoleros second single for Heavy Rocka Recordings!!

REVIEWS:

“This (Mescalito Vampires (Welcome to the Hotel de la Muerta)) is actually a reworked and rewritten version of the Eagles ‘Hotel California’ and is quite simply a stroke of genius, I mean, anyone can do a cover version but this is far more than that, although the roots are still visible the rest of the hair has been coloured ‘Pistolero’.” – Martin Granville, Jace Media

”The Pistoleros are sheer musical escapism“ – Malcolm Dome, Classic Rock Magazine

“Once in a while something special comes along and turns the musical world on its axis and makes you listen to music and lyrics in a totally different way. That something is Gypsy Pistoleros.” – WeBleedMusic

“Gypsy Pistoleros are a thrill-a-minute collection of melodic eye-patch swagger that smells of exotic spices and forbidden concubines. The Gypsy Pistoleros sound like Hanoi Rocks, if Hanoi Rocks were sultans and snake charmers.” – Sleazegrinder, Classic Rock Magazine

“Gypsy Pistoleros were, and still are, a breath of fresh air. You will never hear another band like this. They are the greatest flamenco sleaze glam band ever.” This, actually, is as good as sleaze ever got in the last decade.” – Andrew Thorley, Maximum Volume Music

“Gypsy Pistoleros dub themselves “The World’s Greatest Flamenco Sleaze Glam Rock ‘N’ Roll band Ever!” Doesit work? Are you fucking kidding me? When Kris Jones drops the mariachi trumpet, it’s on! – Dave Wilks, Beaver Buzz Radio

“Can you imagine Sleaze, Glam, Hard Rock, Punk and some Flamenco rolled into one with a whole lot ofSpanish attitude oozing out it? Imagine no more – The Gypsy Pistoleros will give it all to you, and you will love every minute of it and want to reach for a tequila shot” *****. – Michele Storm Hairspray Heaven
