Hard rock heralders PISTOLS AT DAWN bring their “high energy, hard-charging approach to rock n’ roll” (V13) full force in the haunting music video for “Gone Black.” The single is taken from their recent self-released debut EP NOCTURNAL YOUTH, recorded with producer Jeff Tomei (Smashing Pumpkins, Matchbox 20) and mastered by lauded engineer Maor Appelbaum (Faith No More). NOCTURNAL YOUTH’s first single “Voices” received over 1 million video views within the first month of release, while additional videos for singles “Cold,” “Gauntlet,” and “Crown” have amassed 6 million combined views across all platforms.
The “Gone Black” music video, premiered earlier this week via V13 in North America and Midlands Metalheads Radio in the UK, comes just in time for the start of fall and Halloween season as it features haunting makeup and SFX from Shane Morton of Silver Scream FX Lab (Adult Swim’s ‘Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell,’ ‘Mandy’).

“‘Gone Black’ is about people who cause their own misery,” explains the band on the track’s meaning. “They are living their lives stagnant while thinking they are living right, all the while sinking into their own arrogance and/or ignorance and following a perpetual cycle. It leaves them with nothing every time.”
“Working with Shane Morton at Silver Scream FX Lab is like working with Picasso,” the band shares. “He’s an absolute guru that executes his vision with such ease and care that one minute you are human and the next you are a real creature of the netherworld. We loved being transformed into our black light beings! Filming ‘Gone Black’ is definitely one of the coolest video production experiences we have ever had.”
PISTOLS AT DAWN was originally formed in Atlanta, GA in 2015 but disintegrated after the tragic passing of guitarist Mike Buffa in 2018. The band reformed in 2019 with founding members, drummer Adam Jaffe, guitarist Devin White and bassist Billy Sullivan, while adding Tommy Richardson on guitars and VH1 Rockstar Supernova finalist Chris Pierson on vocals. The band is currently completing tracking their debut full length LP, to be be mixed by Sylvia Massy (Tool, System of A Down) and will be released in early 2022.
See the band perform live at one of their upcoming ‘Thank You & F**K Covid’ free concert series in Atlanta and NYC, with additional stops being added soon. The group will also be featured as part of Rock 100.5’s ‘Rock The Bank’ Holiday Benefit Concert’ in Atlanta. A current list of upcoming appearances is as follows:

11/13 – Atlanta, GA – The Loft (presented by Rock 100.5 ‘ Rock The Bank’ Holiday Benefit Concert’
1/22 – NYC, NY – Mercury Lounge (FREE)
