Quick Bio:
Taking Industrial as a modifier that can be applied to any genre History Of Guns have explored many different areas of music from ambient electronica to dance to rock to punk.

History Of Guns released their dark electronica 'Flashes Of Light' debut album in 2004, and have gone on to release three full length official albums, as well as a series of EPs and free download releases.
Their last full album, 2008's 'Acedia' focussed on the abrasive guitar side of their sound and was a considered attempt to examine and confront the various personal demons of lyricists Del Alien and Max Rael in an open and honest way.
The album was widely acclaimed including a 9/10 review in Rock Sound Magazine.

To prove they hadn't lost their sense of humour they followed this up with a three track meditation on 90s girl band phenomenon The Spice Girls, known as 'The Spice Girls EP' and featuring the lo-fi electropunk mashup, 'Slice Up Your Wife', a satire of both The Spice Girls faux-feminist stance and faux-macho/misogynistic rap and rock.

Now in 2012 History Of Guns return with a brand new album of original music, 'Whatever You Do, Don't Turn Up At Twelve'...
It's about life and death and all of that.

Bob Barker from Line Out Records said, "Successfully covers a huge range of styles while still maintaining that brilliant History Of Guns sound."
