Vancouver metalcore tycoons THIS GUN FOR HIRE will be unleashing their debut album 'Something A Little More Sinister' on March 31, 2017. The band recorded the release with engineer and producer Roger Swan (K-OS, Battle Axe) to present their first clutch of original songs to showcase to the world. The twelve track release displays a keen awareness of pace and dynamics. Moving deftly from the seething chaos of the eponymous opener to the grandiose and melodic epic of "To The Fallen And The Faithful', and back again for the staccato grunt of 'Barn Burner' to finish the record, THIS GUN FOR HIRE leave you in little doubt as to their capabilities.
Teaming up with New Noise Magazine, THIS GUN FOR HIRE is proud to share their first single 'Good Morning Deacon' as introduction of what's to come.
The band comments on the track:
“‘Good Evening Deacon’ was written about an encounter that was had with a young man that was at the end of his rope. When traveling home one evening, Deacon was happened upon while on the other side of the Granville bridge, ready to leap to an untimely demise. After hours of gentle talking and coaxing, he was talked back to safety on to the other side of the railings.
This song is in his honor, and dedicated to all those who feel the misery and loneliness is too much to bare. Even when things seem their darkest, waking up over and over to the same heartache, and life is repeatedly stomping on you, intent on driving you down; there is hope. And sometimes the love you seek will come from people you’ve never met, showing you your life does in fact matter and things will get better. This song is for Deacon Braun. I hope happiness found you.”
