Forged in the depths of the outermost reaches of existence itself, Gun Shy was first uncovered taking temporary residence in Southampton in January of the Earth year, ‘2016’ before announcing ‘First Transmission,’ which was released in May via Failure By Design Records – a 5 song audio transmission that drew influence from genres ranging from post-punk and doom to post rock. Gun Shy asks its followers to remain vigilant and to keep watching the skies.
Gun Shy’s new EP; The Long Dance is due for release on Earth date ‘May 12th, 2017’ via Southampton’s very own Wrong Way Round Records on both cassette and digital formats.
Recorded mixed and mastered live at The Ranch Production House by Lewis Johns.
