Ima?gine a Flamenco-infused, glammed out noise in a head on col?li?sion with Punk and Rock N Roll riffs, laced with a touch of latin and you'll sure as hell have yourselves the Gypsy Pis?tol?eros. This ridicu?lously awe?some com?bin?a?tion was the brainchild of Lee Pis?tolero and it is through this bril?liantly orches?trated com?bin?a?tion that they have carved them?selves a unique?ness, sep?ar?at?ing them?selves from other bands in the Glam and Sleaze genres.
These humble begin?nings began in Zar?agoza, Spain. The cata?lyst? A sup?port slot with 'Adlers Appet?ite' in Spain, 2006! Since then the concept has become a kick-ass real?ity with the PISTOLEROS flaunt?ing their way across the UK, Europe and the U.S tour?ing with numer?ous acts. They are the only band to have played at all 5 Rock?lahoma Fest?ivals (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011) and with a 6th appear?ance already announced for 2012, there ain't noth?ing stop?ping the Pis?tolero Revolu?tion any time soon. They also appeared on the smash hit Play?sta?tion 3/xBox game 'WET', which fea?tured no less than three Gypsy Pis?tol?eros tracks.
In late 2011 the band inked a deal with veteran Hard Rock/Metal label, Heavy Metal Records, kickstarting things with a bang with their first single release on label - a glammed out rendi?tion of Ricky Martin's infam?ous chart top?ping hit, 'LIVIN' LA VIDA LOCA' . In early April, the pistoleros released an album titled; 'FOREVER WILD, BEAUTIFUL AND DAMNED! THE GREATEST HITS VOLUME, 1!'
Unfortunately the band parted ways with founder and frontman, Lee Pistolero who decided to fly solo. The band continues with a UK Tour announced for the Summer/Fall of 2012, with a brand new line-up...
Look out for the Pistoleros coming to a town near to you!
