Born from the ashes of their old bands, these musicians helped pave ways in the Canadian stoner rock scene. Members: Al the Yeti Bones (legendary doom bands: Georgian Skull, The Mighty Nimbus, Mister Bones),Darren Brush, Dave (Blood Runs Cold), Adam (Georgian Skull), Sean Hamilton, and Brodie Stevenson have decided to form a pure rock and roll band that dances on the edge of their stoner rock roots as well. When Gypsy Chief Goliath officially became a band, the vibe was electric. The band was formed in 2009 from the collapse of Georgian Skull who were fresh off a signing on North America's largest Major Independent record label: Entertainment ONE. They are tight with 70's laced grooves, integrated jazz rhythms, blistering solos, and harmonies the likes of which only Thin Lizzy could inspire. Having officially been a band for three years, they have already performed with some of the biggest acts in their genre, ie. Cancer Bats, Blood Ceremony, Sons of Otis, Bison BC, Barn Burner, Fiftywatthead, and White Cowbell Oklahoma to name a few. With the release of their debut album and the accompanying documentary entitled "It's A Walk In The Mist" fans will be able to see and hear the band exactly as they are, RAW and the real deal. This is a group that is made up of perseverance, power, experience, and most of all drive. "This could seriously be your favorite band ever." -- Mia Tyler (Steven Tyler of Aerosmith's daughter)
PITCH BLACK RECORS is pleased to announce the addition of GYPSY CHIEF GOLIATH into its artist roster.
Known globally as a stoner metal band, Canadians GYPSY CHIEF GOLIATH incorporate three guitar players and a harmonica player giving them a blues edge to their heavy groove. Thin Lizzy meets Black Sabbath, with subtle elements of modern heavy metal here and there, this is a “heavy blues” band that wavers on the edge of metal, stoner, doom and classic rock.
GYPSY CHIEF GOLIATH have achieved a lot in their tenure as a band, they have toured extensively for many years and they have acquired a large fan base. Handling the reins of GCG is quite possibly one of Canada’s hardest working musicians; Al the Yeti Bones, who has previously worked with bands such as The Mighty Nimbus, Georgian Skull and Mister Bones. Al had this to say in regards to working with Pitch Black Records:
“We’re really excited to be setting in stone the future roots of GCG with Pitch Black. They’re a badass record label who have an extremely great work ethic that I admire a lot. We’re all huge fans of the European metal scene and I just knew this label was going to be home when we first made contact. We’ve worked really hard on a new album called New Machines of the Night and it was recorded straight to analogue and we can’t wait to unleash it on the world through Pitch Black Records.”
“New Machines of the Night” is the band’s second studio album and it’s due for release worldwide on October 8th, 2013 on CD and digital.
The album’s opening track, “Uneasy Kings”, is now available for streaming and free download at www.pitchblackrecords.com. A video will also be released before the album is released and of course a series of live shows are currently being scheduled.
