Gus said the following about his bandmates:

“Dennis and I have collaborated very closely for a number years, he produced the current Firewind album Immortals, among other things. We’re on the same musical wavelength and simply continued our cooperation after the Firewind production. I sent him demos of and ideas for my new songs and once we had enough material and started to think about vocalists, Dennis suggested recording the album as a trio.

A lot of people don’t realize that Dennis is not only a brilliant songwriter, bassist and producer, but also an excellent singer. I immediately liked his suggestion because this would be very different from everything else I’ve done before.”

“Will was at the very top of my wish list. Fate smiled on me because we played at the Frankfurt music fair 2017 during my tour with Steve Stevens, and Will stayed at the same hotel. So I approached him, we talked for a while and he agreed. Last August he came to the studio and recorded the drum parts for the whole album within two and a half days. A real pro with a great groove and an awesome punch.”

Gus G. Premieres “The Quest” Music Video

Gus G. (Ozzy Osbourne etc.) has premiered a new video for his song “The Quest,” via Jackson. This song is from his latest album, “Brand New Revolution,” which is available now.

Gus G. said the following:

“Today is a very exciting day for me – not only it’s the start of my solo tour in the U.S. (w/ Angel Vivaldi), but the premiere of my new video for ‘The Quest.’ This is a very special track, as it’s the only instrumental from my Brand New Revolution solo album, and it’s an over the top, high energy metal track, with tons of shredding, big melodies and crazy arrangements. Since the album release, people have been telling me how much they’ve been enjoying this song, so I decided to make a video for it!”

“Working with the iCode Team in Serbia was a great experience and our goal was to make a crazy, cinematic, action packed video inspired by some of my favorite ’80s cult classic films like Mad Max, Conan the Barbarian and Highlander. If you’re into any of these movies, I’m sure you’ll dig this video! Plus, is there a guitar player on this Earth that wouldn’t wanna kill bad guys with his guitar superpowers? Enjoy my friends!”

GUS G said the following:

“I’m very excited to return to the US this Fall to finally hit more markets and play for the fans that were left out on my recent Spring mini-tour. Teaming up with a talented player like Angel Vivaldi seemed like a great opportunity. We’re both stoked to bring the ‘Operation Domination’ tour to the American audiences and we will be performing our own individual sets, but also collaborating on stage together as well. We will have a great band with us that features James Paul Luna of Holy Grail (Official Page) on vocals, Alex Bent (ex-Battlecross, Testament) on drums and Jake Skylyr on bass.

“The setlist will once again be a mixed bag including songs from my solo works, Firewind, Ozzy material but some surprises as well. These shows are not to be missed. See you soon.”

Vivaldi added:

“For me this tour perfectly summarizes the evolution of modern guitar playing. To be able to share a stage with a force such as Gus is both inspiring and refreshing. I cannot wait to see the looks on people’s faces when they see what we have planned! I’m also really excited to dip into music from all my releases including the upcoming re-recordings from The Speed of Dark: Revisited, coming out this year.

“After the recent tragic events in Orlando, I’m going above and beyond to make this tour a much needed celebration of love, inspiration and positive energy. I have some exciting tricks up my sleeve that I’m anxious to unleash on this run. It’s going to be a party!”
