On July 24th, the iconic guitar sensation, GUS G, returns with his most widely heralded solo album, Brand New Revolution. The new offering will be released through Dismanic / eOne in North America includes such highly renowned guests vocalists as Jeff Scott Soto, Elize Ryd (Amaranthe), Mats Levén and Jacob Bunton (Adler, Lynam), while Jo Nunez played drums and Marty O' Brien (Lita Ford) played bass. Jay Ruston (Stone Sour, Anthrax, Steel Panther) engineered the sessions and the legendary Mike Fraser (Metallica, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Van Halen) handled mixing duties. The effort was also mastered by Maor Appelbaum (Faith No More, Yes). 

GUS G is Guitar World’s current cover feature, alongside Chris Broderick (ex-Megadeth). You can view this cover image and purchase the issue directly at the link below. In a very special exclusive arrangement with Guitar World Magazine, GUS G will offer up a full-length version of his new album in news-stand copies of this cover feature issue, but it's limited to 10.000 copies only!

GUS G states: "I must say that I'm very excited about partnering up with Guitar World to do this special release for my new album. In a current situation where record stores are almost obsolete, CD shelf space is becoming smaller and smaller in mega retailers and the CD format is becoming a thing of the past, I felt why not offer the fans something special? Why not give them a limited version of this album together with Guitar World magazine? Obviously, it's a guitar player's record and I'm sure Guitar World's readers will appreciate this. I can't think of a better celebration for the release of Brand New Revolution!

"Let's face it, getting to be on the cover go Guitar World magazine is every guitar player's dream. I'm fortunate enough to grace GW cover for the 2nd time (first time w/ Ozzy back in 2010) together with one of the best Metal guitarists of our time, Chris Broderick. It's such a big honor. We had a great time doing the photo shoot w/ Chris and also hanging and jamming. He's a monstrous player & I'm glad to see him forging his own path with his new band, Act Of Defiance. 

“The album’s only instrumental track, 'The Quest,' is a very strong track and creates an impact. You hear lots of sides of my playing, not only the technical leads and heavy riffing, but melodies and even acoustic. Lots of stuff jam-packed into this song, but somehow it all comes together nicely. 

"Touring wise, I'll be spending most of the Fall in Europe touring with my solo band, as special guest of Kamelot, but I am also planning to do an extensive clinic tour right after. I will be joining Ozzy for a one off US show on Halloween at Voodoo festival in New Orleans and I hope I can do some US solo dates around the end of the year. Hope to see you all soon."

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.

NEW ALBUM RECORDINGS COMPLETED; NEW TOURDATES ANNOUNCED!

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:
