RILEY’S L.A. GUNS has released a new single, “Rewind”, digitally via Golden Robot Records. The track is taken from the band’s upcoming sophomore album, “The Dark Horse”, tentatively due mid-2023.
“Rewind’ tackles the complex relationship lulls surrounding infidelity. “[It] is about how something so sweet can turn so sour,” says RILEY’S L.A. GUNS bassist Kelly Nickels.
It’s a tale as old as time: finding someone really special and becoming involved, then, as time passes, you learn they are cheating on you and stringing you along with lies. The feeling of frustration sinks in as you realize you have to end it and wish you could go back and “rewind” and make different decisions.
Golden Robot Global Entertainment founder and CEO Mark Alexander-Erber said: “As expected, another blistering assault by RILEY’S L.A. GUNS. I cannot wait for the world to hear their second album — it will definitely set them apart from all others.”
To accompany “Rewind”, RILEY’S L.A. GUNS will release a limited-edition bundle series of vinyls. With each single leading up to the release of “The Dark Horse”, RILEY’S L.A. GUNS are putting out a limited-edition bundle, with bundle No. 2 out for pre-order today. Each bundle will include a limited-edition red seven-inch vinyl and a different-colored 12-inch of the upcoming album, with bundle No. 2 12-inch being a red and black splatter.
Last October, RILEY’S L.A. GUNS released a single called “Overdrive”.
In April 2021, an out-of-court resolution was reached in the legal dispute over the rights to the L.A. GUNS name. Under the terms of the settlement agreement, guitarist Tracii Guns and singer Phil Lewis are continuing to operate under the L.A. GUNS trademark, while Steve Riley and his band-mates from the other version of L.A. GUNS are now operating under the new name RILEY’S L.A. GUNS.
RILEY’S L.A. GUNS features Riley alongside Orlando, Florida-based guitarist/vocalist Kurt Frohlich, bassist Kelly Nickels (a member of L.A. GUNS‘ “classic” incarnation) and guitarist Scott Griffin, who played bass for L.A. GUNS from 2007 until 2009, and then again from 2011 to 2014.
