Creator Destructor to release Gypsyhawk debut
Official press release: San Francisco-based record label Creator Destructor Records is proud to announce a partnership with Pasadena, Calif.'s Gypsyhawk. Clocking in at over an hour, the debut album from the band entitled "Patience and Perseverance" features 12 tracks of classic rock/heavy metal, and is slated for a July 6 release in the US. Several tracks from the forthcoming effort are available at the band's webpage, including a glimpse into the album's contemporized, 70s rock-influenced artwork. In a decided departure from his former band's blackened-thrash tendencies, former Skeletonwitch bassist Eric Harris takes up double duty, grabbing the microphone and bass guitar alongside bandmates Andrew Packer, Scotty Conant (guitars) and Joe Fabio (drums) with Gypsyhawk drawing inspirations from (and yielding comparisons to) Thin Lizzy, Deep Purple, Motorhead, and the like. While writing and recording songs for a debut demo EP at Fabio's home studio, Creator-Destructor offered to step in and lend a hand with a full-length release in the form of a gatefold vinyl package with multiple color configurations, as well as a digipak CD release. Recording wrapped in late April with producer/mixer Zack Ohren (All Shall Perish, Light This City, Heartsounds) in Oakland which also featured Gypsyhawk's first Bay Area show. The band is now back in the Los Angeles area and wrapping up plans for a two week tour in July support of their debut. Dates for that trek, which will hit cities along the West Coast, will be available soon, as well as more information about artwork and the double LP configurations of "Patience And Perseverance."
