NEW AlBUM ARTWORK, TRAKCLISTING, FIRST TEASER CLIP AND RELEASE DATE!



After having recently announced his upcoming sophomore solo album release “Brand New Revolution” via Century Media Records in Europe, Australia and South America, Dismanic / eOne in North America and King Records in Japan, Ozzy Osbourne / Firewind guitarist GUS G. is now ready to launch a few more details about it.

“Brand New Revolution” will be released in Europe on July 24th, 2015 and comes with artwork (which can be seen above!) once again created by Gustavo Sazes / www.abstrata.net, who already worked with GUS G. on his debut release “I Am The Fire”, but also took care of artwork duties by bands such as Arch Enemy, Kamelot and also Firewind in the past years.

The tracklisting for the album, which features guest vocal appearances by Jeff Scott Soto, Elize Ryd (Amaranthe), Jacob Bunton (Adler, Lynam) & Mats Levén (Candlemass, ex-Yngwie Malmsteen),reads as follows:

GUS G. – “Brand New Revolution”:
1. The Quest
2. Brand New Revolution 
3. Burn 
4. We Are One
5. What Lies Below
6. Behind Those Eyes
7. Gone To Stay
8. One More Try
9. Come Hell Or High Water
10. If It Ends Today
11. Generation G
12. The Demon Inside 

A first trailer for the upcoming release (featuring a teaser sample of the opening instrumental piece “The Quest”) can now be seen and heard here: https://youtu.be/bv8FSY_xnJs

GUS G. checked in with the following comment about the album: “As I'm putting the final touches on “Brand New Revolution”, I wanted to give out a bit about the new music. “The Quest" is the only instrumental of the album and it's a heavy, high energy, technical track. The rest of the album once again features collaborations with some awesome singers / songwriters such as the legendary Jeff Scott Soto (who appears on "Gone To Stay" and "Generation G"), Mats Levén (who appears on “Come Hell Or High Water”, “If It Ends Today” & “The Demon Inside”), Jacob Bunton (who appears on “Brand New Revolution”, “Burn”, “We Are One”, “Behind Those Eyes” & “One More Try”) and the awesome Elize Ryd of Amaranthe (who sings on "What Lies Below"). I feel the album as a whole has many influences, from classic Hard Rock / Metal to more modern and current sounds. Stay tuned as more info will be revealed in the coming days”.

“Brand New Revolution” was recorded with Jay Ruston (Stone Sour, Anthrax, Steel Panther, etc.) and mixed by Mike Fraser (Metallica, AC/DC, Van Halen, Aerosmith, etc.). Just as on “I Am The Fire”, the core of GUS G.’s recording group consisted of Jo Nunez (Firewind) on drums and Marty O' Brien (Lita Ford band) on bass.

Following a busy year of promotion and touring for his solo debut album “I Am The Fire”, Ozzy Osbourne / Firewind guitarist GUS G. has now announced that the recordings for the follow-up release have been completed. GUS G.’s sophomore solo album will be entitled “Brand New Revolution” and it is to be released in July via Century Media Records in Europe, Australia and South America, Dismanic / eOne in North America and King Records in Japan.

Here is a comment from GUS G. with further details: “Today I'm happy to announce that I have finished recording my second solo album and that it will be released this Summer.  Its title is "Brand New Revolution" and once again I collaborated with some amazing musicians & songwriters on it, including singers Jeff Scott Soto, Elize Ryd (Amaranthe), Mats Levén, Jacob Bunton (Adler, Lynam) while Jo Nunez played drums and Marty O' Brien (Lita Ford band) played bass, while Jay Ruston (Stone Sour, Anthrax, Steel Panther, etc.) engineered the sessions. Most of the tracks were recorded live with me and the rhythm section jamming in a room. There's a certain energy about it, that I hadn't previously done on a record before. The album is being mixed by the legendary Mike Fraser (Metallica, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Van Halen, etc.) in Vancouver, as I write these lines. The first few mixes I got sound crushing! I can't wait to share this with you all! In regards to the music itself, I can say that it's a continuation of the modern hard rock style I followed on my 1st album, although I think this one's a bit heavier. Needless to say, there's tons of guitar on it!” Additionally, GUS G. has been recently confirmed to support US Rockers Hellyeah on some dates in Germany as well as The Netherlands in June and will also be appearing at some European festivals this Summer. The announced dates are as follows:

GUS G. – Live 2015:

09.06.2015 Karlsruhe (Germany) - Substage + Hellyeah
10.06.2015 Hamburg (Germany) - Logo + Hellyeah
