LISTEN & SHARE:Black Pistol Fire – “Level”
SoundCloud– Spotify 

“Stomping with the grit the garage rock duo is known for, there’s a surf-yvibe in the heavy guitar and vocal melodies, a reflection of the smoky darkness that enveloped so much of the West Coast in 2018. Though it’s not bluntly stated, there is a bit of weary hopefulness in the lyrics, cutting through like the bright riffs against the thudding drums.”
– Consequence of Sound

“Full of bluesy swagger and pulse-pounding riffs, ‘Level’ is classic Black Pistol Fire. McKeown spits vitriol — “What do you take me for?” — as his guitar screeches and sears over Owen’s raucous drumming. It is pure, cathartic thunder. ‘Level’ proves that the claims of rock and roll’s death have been greatly exaggerated.”
– The 405

Black Pistol Fire is a high-octane rock duo based out of Austin, Texas by way of Toronto, Canada; composed of Kevin McKeown on guitar/lead vocals and Eric Owen on drums. Drawing inspiration from blues, R&B and rock greats such as Led Zeppelin, Chuck Berry, Nirvana, Buddy Holly and Muddy Waters, BPF’s gritty and dynamic performances are fueled by undeniable musicianship. Dubbed the “next big thing” by Huffington Post after SXSW 2013, BPF has developed a reputation for their untamed live performances. Described as “Pure fire on stage”(Degenrefy), they quickly became festival veterans, having performanced at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, Sasquatch Music Festival, Shaky Knees and Governor’s Ball, among others (including international festivals such as Mad Cool and Colours of Ostrava). After Lollapalooza 2015, Yahoo Music described Black Pistol Fire as “a power duo that can almost match the power and intensity of the massive rock sounds of the likes of Led Zeppelin and Fleetwood Mac… in a breakout set.”
