New Release Special Offer

  Girls Guns And Glory with Limited* Autographed CD Booklet!

 


Order the new album, Good Luck by Girls Guns And Glory, and get a limited* autographed CD booklet with purchase!


For the past eight years, Boston's rising stars Girls Guns and Glory have been making a name for themselves through relentless touring (about 200 gigs a year worldwide), the release of four critically acclaimed records, a slew of local awards, including being the Boston Music Awards first act of its genre to win Act of the Year, and international awards (Independent Artist of the Year at the French Country Music Awards). And, now, the hard-working band is refining their focus to the roots of rock 'n' roll with a twist of country on their fifth album, Good Luck.

The foursome (Ward Hayden on vocals/guitar, Paul Dilley on electric and upright bass/piano, Josh Kiggans on drums/percussion, and Chris Hersch on lead guitar/banjo) found inspiration for this record from early '50s rock 'n' roll icons such as Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochran, and Buddy Holly, as well as country greats like Hank Williams and Johnny Cash.

The early rock 'n' roll inspiration is somewhat of a full circle moment for Hayden. "This style of music was in the house I grew up in," explains Hayden. "My mom was a fan of the earlier country music and early rock 'n' roll, but I didn't have real taste for it until I was about 20. I had this beat up old Oldsmobile that didn't have a radio, only a tape deck. My mom would lend me her tapes of Johnny Cash or Hank Williams so I'd have something to listen to. I fell in love with the sound; it was everything I had been looking for."

Fast-forward to today and GGG is looking back to that era of music for a more rock 'n' roll-focused record with producer Eric "Roscoe" Ambel (Nils Lofgren, Steve Earle, The Bottle Rockets) at the helm. "We were familiar with the work he'd done with Steve Earle and The Bottle Rockets and he was Joan Jett's original guitarist. Right after we made our fourth record Sweet Nothings in 2011, he heard us on the radio and contacted us, asking about our plans. It's funny because we had been talking about trying to get in touch with him and there he is calling us out of the blue," explains Hayden.

It was this serendipitous coming together that really solidified the sound of Good Luck. "One of the ways we really benefitted from Roscoe was that he had seen us play live several times and was able to see what the audience reacted to the most," continues Hayden. "Even though we play a variety of styles of music, he saw that fans really reacted to the more rocking songs. We wanted to focus this album on making more of a straightforward rock 'n' roll record that would translate well to the live show and he really helped us accomplish that."
