Thirteen Shots - 'First American Sweetheart' Single Review



Founded in 2011 in Birmingham, England, Thirteen Shots comprised of Johnny Rose, Chelsea, George and Lewis Lew have been treating fans to their B Movie inspired garage rock 'n' roll sound ever since! They have released two albums which combine the likes of punk, psychobilly and retro garage rock to create their own unique sound and now they are back with their new single, 'First American Sweetheart' which is inspired by the romance of the silent film era and the star of the silver screen, Mary Pickford.

The song itself has strong catchy rhythms driving it and is highly dynamic and energetic with well written lyrics to fit the cause! You can hear their various influences of genres; from punk shown through the instrumentation and the gravelly vocals presented with attitude and rock 'n' roll inspired riffs all packed into this anthemic tribute, which is all delivered well and makes for a tribute to be proud of! Thirteen Shots have created themselves an interesting sound which many should happily embrace and this new single highlights their talents brilliantly!

EX-HIM Frontman Ville Valo Reveals New Band & Album

Ville has teamed up with Esa Pulliainen, guitarist with veteran Finnish band Agents, to record an album of songs inspired by late Finnish rock’n’roll singer Rauli Badding Somerjoki.

“This story begins three years ago,” says Pulliainen, whose band played with Badding in the 80s. “Upon finding three demo cassettes in my drawer which had been sent to me by Badding back in the day, I knew I had to contact Ville right from the get-go. I was aware he knows his Badding inside out. I'm really happy that we were able to finalize this project.
