Biography

Ima­gine a Flamenco-infused, glammed out noise in a head on col­li­sion with Punk and Rock N Roll riffs, laced with a touch of latin and you'll sure as hell have yourselves the Gypsy Pis­tol­eros. This ridicu­lously awe­some com­bin­a­tion was the brainchild of Lee Pis­tolero and it is through this bril­liantly orches­trated com­bin­a­tion that they have carved them­selves a unique­ness, sep­ar­at­ing them­selves from other bands in the Glam and Sleaze genres.

These humble begin­nings began in Zar­agoza, Spain. The cata­lyst? A sup­port slot with 'Adlers Appet­ite' in Spain, 2006! Since then the concept has become a kick-ass real­ity with the PISTOLEROS flaunt­ing their way across the UK, Europe and the U.S tour­ing with numer­ous acts. They are the only band to have played at all 5 Rock­lahoma Fest­ivals (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011) and with a 6th appear­ance already announced for 2012, there ain't noth­ing stop­ping the Pis­tolero Revolu­tion any time soon. They also appeared on the smash hit Play­sta­tion 3/xBox game 'WET', which fea­tured no less than three Gypsy Pis­tol­eros 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 rendi­tion of Ricky Martin's infam­ous chart top­ping 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!
