Austin by way of Canada alt-rock duo Black Pistol Fire, will perform at Lollapalooza on Friday, July 30 from 2-3PM on the Tito’s Stage.
Black Pistol Fire are touring the U.S. and Canada this summer and fall in celebration of their new album Look Alive, out now via Black Hill Records. For all Black Pistol Fire North American tour dates, visit the official website.
Look Alive debuted in the U.S. at #2 on the Billboard Alternative Albums chart, #10 on Top New Artists Albums, #24 on Rock Albums, and #39 on the Digital Albums chart. Look Alive delivered on the Canadian charts as well, with debuts of #5 on the Alternative Albums chart, #15 Top Current Albums chart, #17 Top Albums chart, and #26 on the Current Digital Albums chart.
Look Alive delivers on Black Pistol Fire’s renowned fusion of southern rock, blues, and garage punk through wildly diverse and standout songs–among them the raucous title track “Look Alive,” the psych-laced “Level,” an R&B-inflected “Temper, Temper,” and “Never Enough.” For Look Alive, Black Pistol Fire – Kevin McKeown (guitarist, lead vocalist, songwriter) and Eric Owen (drums/bass synth) – teamed with co-producer and engineer Jacob Sciba (Gary Clark Jr, Gov’t Mule, Warren Haynes) and multi-GRAMMY winning mixer Vance Powell (White Stripes, Raconteurs, Chris Stapleton).
