Steamhammer/SPV have announced their signing of the trio, EAT THE GUN. Only a few days ago, the musicians Hendrik Wippermann (vocals, guitar), Gereon Homann (drums) and new addition Peter Bergmüller (bass) finished working on the ten songs of their fourth studio album Stripped To The Bone and are now looking forward to release the new single 'Loner' in October and the album in November 2013.
“Steamhammer/SPV have always been our favourite label, not least because of Motörhead, so we’re really happy to be working with Olly Hahn and his excellent team from now on,” comments Hendrik Wippermann. “We can hardly wait to hold the new CD with the legendary Steamhammer/SPV logo in our hands. Definitely a magical moment for us.”
Eat The Gun got together in 2002, have released the studio albums Cross Your Fingers (2006), Super Pursuit Mode Aggressive Thrash Distortion (2009) and RUNNER (2011) and made the top ten of the German DJ Metal/Rock Charts for eight weeks in 2009 and the Top 20 of the American college radio charts in 2011. The band has played more than 650 concerts to date, inspiring fans at the Taubertal Festival, the Big Day Out and the Wacken Open Air and appearing alongside acts such as DIE TOTEN HOSEN, HIM, DANKO JONES, BACKYARD BAIES and HARDCORE SUPERSTAR.
For Steamhammer/SPV’s A&R manager Olly Hahn, the signing of Eat The Gun marks a special moment, too: “I have been watching this band for some time and am really impressed with their latest material. Every time I hear the songs I can’t suppress a big grin. We and the band’s many fans are guaranteed to have lot of fun with Stripped To The Bone this coming November.”
