Gloryhound @ Fishbones Oyster Bar & Grill

  • Place : Canada
  • Time : 22:30
  • Details : Gloryhound will take the stage at Fishbones Oyster Bar & Grill in Charlottetown on Saturday, July 26th. The popular Halifax based rockers are celebrating the release of their new full-length album, Loaded Gun. Show time is 10:30pm. With one boot firmly rooted in classic rock style and the other in contemporary alt-rock, Gloryhound howled world-wide with the unleashing of their new single, album title track, “Loaded Gun,” back in April and are now touring in support of their new Loaded Gun album released on June 23, 2014. The single became the band’s third straight Top 25 hit on Rock Radio in Canada, following “Electric Dusk” and “Let You Down Again.” In their formative years Gloryhound listened to Alice Cooper, The Ramones, Thin Lizzy and Iggy Pop. All of these influences can be heard in their self-styled form of rock, but their sound is truly their own. Simply put: “All stacks, no macs.” “A group that’s become one of the leaders on the East Coast, Gloryhound is making a name by returning to core values of guitar rock. They play loud, hard, and smart, with a sound that skirts ’70′s classic, but feels crisp and new” says CBC journalist and author of Top 100 Canadian Albums, Bob Mersereau, “the group showed why they have become known as a premiere live act, one that should easily break out in the rest of the country.” “Gloryhound is a band that brings back real rock and roll. It’s time for a change and Gloryhound is that change. It’s nice to see rock music is still alive.” GGGarth Richardson “I loved mixing the album. The songs are really good, the band is really musical and powerful and Evan’s got a great pop voice. GGGarth did a masterful job producing it. It was a real pleasure.” Bob Ezrin Don’t miss Gloryhound on Saturday, July 26th at 10:30pm at Fishbones Oyster Bar & Grill, 126 Richmond Street, Charlottetown. www.gloryhoundband.com
