Amy Lynn & The Gun Show have released their first single from the upcoming full length debut called Don’t Trip On The Glitter, which releases on April 29, 2014. When choosing the first single off of the album, the band chose their cover of the Shangri-Las hit, “Remember (Walking In The Sand).” When asked by why they chose that track, lead singer Amy Lynn said, “I’ve always loved that song. It’s a must for our live shows so we knew we wanted it to be part of the album.” It wasn’t until they sat down with their producer, Steve Greenwell, that the song became the version it is. Amy explains, “We played the demo for him and Steve said, ‘this tune is such a dirge, man!’ He encouraged us to come up with a more animated version that captured the Gunshow sound. His criticism forced us to approach this classic track in a new way. Everyone loved how it turned out.”
The cover is one of 9 tracks on the Gunshow’s upcoming full length, Don’t Trip On The Glitter. The album is scheduled to be released on April 29, 2014 and follows their critically acclaimed debut EP, Clearly. For four days they recorded the album at The Clubhouse in Rhinebeck, NY with Greenwell. The band have a handful of dates this month and will be previewing material from the full length. They’ve also confirmed a mini-tour in May around the release including an album release show at Joe’s Pub in New York on May 8. All tour dates are below with more to be announced shortly.Amy Lynn & The Gunshow is a seven-piece machine that blows glitter all over the traditional memphis-motown soul/rock style. At the controls is Amy Lynn, a vocal powerhouse whose unique flair of quirky, down-to-earth humor countervails against the serious musicianship of The Gunshow’s team of bari sax, tenor sax, trumpet, keys, bass, and drums. Both together and apart, members of The Gunshow draw on a range of experience playing for acts such as Roberta Flack, Spoon, Bette Midler, Red Baraat, St. Vincent, The National, Yo La Tengo, Loser’s Lounge, Duffy, Antibalas, and the Radio City Orchestra.
