One of the greatest American hard rock band of the last 30 years, LA Guns have always delivered a solid show. Having found a new breath of air with the reunion of Phil Lewis and Tracii Guns after years being apart, they released the widely praised The Mising Peace in 2017, and are now back even stronger. Their new album The Devil You Know is being released today, and has all the elements they became known for: Phil’s stunning and unique vocals and Guns’ mind-bending guitar playing, are on full display here. Sonically, this album covers a lot of ground and incorporates influences from Black Sabbath to Led Zeppelin to Kyuss to The Hellacaopters, all while distinctly sounding like L.A. Guns. The band is rejuvenated and are literally taking no prisoners.

Sonic Perspectives restless and not-so-wild collaborator Rodrigo Altaf spoke with Phil Lewis recently about the new album, and they discussed the different incarnations and versions of the band, his relationship with Tracii and also addressed his collaboration with the recently deceased Bernie Torme.
