Black Pistol Fire release "Pick Your Poison," a brand new track packed with catchy vigorous vocals, vibrant guitars and dynamic drums recorded in Nashville, TN with Vance Powell(engineer/mixing: The Raconteurs, Chris Stapleton, The Dead weather). "Pick Your Poison" is a last minute addition that almost didn't make it along with a handful of tracks set to be recorded with Powell.
"Some songs take on many different life forms or personalities before they are ready for the studio, and some never see the light of day," shares guitarist/lead vocalist Kevin
The lyrical concept of "Pick Your Poison" evolved from personal struggles over the last six months that brought on some serious thinking for the band. "I was always fascinated by scenarios in which we must choose the lesser of two evils," reveals McKeown. "It can make a person do some heavy soul searching when faced with those type of decisions."
Pistol Fire is a Canadian-bred rock duo, currently based out of Austin, Texas
and composed of McKeown and drummer Eric Owen. Their untamed sound stems inspiration from garage-rock, hip-hop, R&B and classic rock. In recent years, they've earned a reputation for their powerful live performances in the festival circuit from Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, Sasquatch, Governor's Ball, Riot Fest. They most recently performed at Welcome To Rockville, following a string of dates on their expansive US tour that will continue through the end of summer.
