Gun Outfit have released “Lau Blues” in anticipation of their new album. The band releases their third album, Hard Coming Down today!

This Olympia-bred band channels everything from the sounds of 90’s Pacific Northwest bands to groups like New York’s Luna with their warm tones and heavy, dark-garage vibes. This twelve-track album is the first one with bass and it is a dark opening in a wall of artificial light.

Along with the album comes “Where’s Anton”, a short film surrounding Gun Outfit, directed by Growing‘s Joe DeNardo; blending the shared narratives of document and artifice. Go ahead and check out the preview:

The band has just left for their spring tour which they will play dates with The Men, Milk Music and others.
