L.A. Guns hires Rock Star: Marty Casey to be the new singer
LOS ANGELES, CA (JUNE 3, 2008) – The rock ‘n’ roll band, L.A. GUNS, featuring guitarist Tracii Guns has some big news heading into their Summer Blackout Tour 2008.
The band will be hitting the road this month with a couple of new members on board. In addition to Tracii Guns on lead guitar, Jeremy Guns will be on bass along with Chad Stewart on drums, and the band has enlisted new rhythm guitar player Alec “Big Al” Bauer, who has been touring with the band since 2007.
Marty Casey, the “new blonde guy,” as the band has affectionately referred to him on their website, is the new voice of L.A. Guns. Casey gained recognition as a vocalist along with millions of fans during his run on the hit CBS show “Rock Star: INXS.” He was also instrumental in writing and creating new material on the upcoming L.A. Guns album.
The boys of L.A. Guns have another “big gun” in their pocket. The band is currently in Canada recording their new album with Multi Grammy Award Winning Producer Steve Thompson. Tracii describes the album by saying, “this definitely will not be your father’s L.A. GUNS” and the music is “slightly more advanced” and the lyrics are “more introspective, without losing the fun nature of our Rock ‘n’ Roll.”
L.A. Guns is currently signed with ALEXUS RECORDS. Look for these guys on tour this summer with Faster Pussycat and Bang Tango as they blaze a trail through a city near you.
