Guns Of Brighton / Bio

“GUNS OF BRIGHTON” ARE A TRADITIONAL PUNK THREE PIECE BAND COMPRISED OF SEASONED VETERANS OF THE BOSTON AND NORTH SHORE MUSIC SCENES, WRITING ORIGINAL SONGS WITH SOLID GUITAR HOOKS, CATCHY CHORUSES, HEARTFELT LYRICS, AND SOARING VOCAL HARMONIES.

MAIN SONGWTRITER MARK DUCHANE (MARKIE D) HAS PLAYED IN SEVERAL NOTEWORTHY BOSTON BANDS INCLUDING “GONE BABY GONE”, “FULL POWERED HALO,” AND “FRIDAY NIGHT FIGHTS”. HE DID A STINT ON THE ACCLAIMED “VANS WARPED TOUR” IN 2005 AND A TOUR WITH FORMER HITMAKERS “MATCHBOX 20” IN THE 1990’S. HIS FONDEST MEMORIES OF THE BOSTON SCENE INCLUDE PUNK MATINEES AT “THE RAT”, PLAYING THE WBCN ROCK ‘N’ ROLL RUMBLE AND RECORDING AT “FORT APACHE” STUDIOS IN CAMBRIDGE.

DRUMMER ANT AUBREY GAINED QUITE A REPUTATION AS PART OF BOSTON FAVORITES “MY OWN WORST ENEMY” AND TOURING SURF ROCK STALLWARTS “THE WEISSTRONAUTS”. THESE ACCOMPLISHMENTS HAVE LED TO HIM BEING CALLED ONE OF THE BEST HARMONY SINGING DRUMMERS IN THE AREA BY “THE NOISE”, A WIDELY READ BOSTON ROCK MONTHLY.

THOUGH ORIGINALLY FROM VIRGINIA, BASSIST LEE HOLLAND MOVED TO THE BOSTON AREA AND HIT THE GROUND RUNNING AS A SOUGHT AFTER “MATT FREEMAN” – STYLED BASS PLAYER. JOINING “GUNS OF BRIGHTON” IN JULY OF 2012, HIS INFECTIOUS RUNS ADDED A MUCH NEEDED DIMENSION TO THE SONGWRITING FOR "GUNS OF BRIGHTON."

“GUNS OF BRIGHTON” IS BUILDING A STRONG LOCAL FOLLOWING. THE BAND LOOKS FORWARD TO GROWING THEIR FAN BASE AND TOURING REGIONALLY IN THE MONTHS TO COME.

THERE IS BUT ONE QUESTION BOSTON PUNK ACT “GUNS OF BRIGHTON” HAS FOR THE PEOPLE OF BOSTON AND THE SURROUNDING AREA; “DO YOU WANNA HEAR THE SOUND OF GUNS?” AND IF YOUR ANSWER’S AFFIRMATIVE THEIR DEBUT ALBUM “A SELFISH CALL TO ARMS” DROPS IN EARLY 2014. BE ON THE LOOKOUT!
