Black Pistol Fire are that Explosive duo from Austin, TX (by way of Toronto, Canada), who draw inspiration from blues, R&B and rock. Welp, the Boys Are BACK! The New single and first reveal off “Deadbeat Graffiti” is the lovestruck anthem “Lost Cause”!
With Kevin McKeown on guitar/lead vocals and Eric Owen on drums, Black Pistol Fire‘s gritty and dynamic performances are fueled by an undeniable musicianship. Festival vets (Lollapalooza, ACL, Bonnaroo, Sasquatch, Shaky Knees, Governor’s Ball), BPF have also shared the stage with acts as diverse as Gary Clark Jr., Weezer, Wolfmother, and Band Of Skulls.
“Our fifth album is a representation of our listening habits,” BPF‘s McKeown and Owen say jointly. “It has a roller coaster effect, with many different tempos and influences ranging from garage-punk, to hip-hop, soul, and everything else that we may listen to on a given day. It is meant to act like a mixtape or Spotify playlist, where the listener won’t know what’ll hit them next!”

“A power duo that can almost match the power and intensity of massive rock sounds like Led Zeppelin…definitely displayed force-and then some-in a breakout set.”–YAHOO Music
