Gypsyhawk Offer Track-by-Track Breakdown of ‘Revelry & Resilience’ Album
Get ready for Gypsyhawk! The upstart California rockers recently dropped by Metal Blade's offices to film a track-by-track breakdown of their upcoming full-length release, 'Revelry & Resilience,' and we've got the exclusive look at the resulting videos here at Loudwire.
Singer-bassist Eric Harris and guitarist Andrew Packer offered an in-depth look at each of the tracks, including their current single 'Hedgeking.' Packer says the song deals with power and responsibility. He says of the single, "We were on tour a year ago listening to 'Game of Thrones,' the first book in the 'Song of Ice and Fire' series book on tape and there's this point where King Robert talks about how if it wasn't for his s---ty son Geoffrey he would ditch ruling the kingdom and just sail across a narrow sea and go about fighting."
While that track comes from a fantasy-inspired background, Gypsyhawk are definitely rooted in straight-up heavy rock and roll. Harris says it's definitely the only way he wants to play, and he says of their sound, "It's music for girls to shake their asses to and dudes to bang their heads. 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 f---ing time!' guys, and I like to think there's something for everyone in our music."
Gypsyhawk's 'Revelry & Resilience' album arrives Aug. 28, and fans can pre-order the album here.
In related news, the band will celebrate the release of their sophomore disc on Aug. 24 with an in-store performance at Vacation Vinyl in Los Angeles with the Grill 'Em All food truck serving metal-themed burgers for those in attendance.
And look for Gypsyhawk in December playing the Mayhem Festival Cruise alongside Lamb of God, Anthrax, Machine Head, Hatebreed, and Battlecross among others. The cruise sets sail Dec. 7-10. Visit the Mayhem Festival Cruise website for details.
