Shotgun Mistress – Kings Of The Revolution

Spread the love

Shotgun Mistress are a hard-rocking 4-piece band from Melbourne, Australia who originally formed in 2018 and wanted to deliver ear-shatteringly good rock n roll far and wide. The boys dropped their self-titled debut album on us in June 2021 which gave us singles Bleed Me Out, Glorious Machine, Collide, Save Me from Myself and the colossal rock ballad May She Never Walk Alone. The boys spent time on the road with the awesome Electric Mary and had many headline and support slots last year, this year they are hitting the ground running with a new album planned for 2024 and are also hitting the road touring through Australia in February, Japan in June and Europe later in 2024. Please sit back as I walk us through this sonic eruption of a second album from these 4 scallywags from down under.
