2013 Tour Poster

Hailing from Saskatoon, SK, in the heart of the Canadian prairies, JUNO and Polaris Prize award nominees Shooting Guns are hard at work fortifying the heavy end of the psychedelic spectrum, haunting the foggy moor between Sabbath-styled doom riffery and heavy pulse-riding kraut-rock. Shooting Guns scored the soundtrack to Canadian horror-comedy WolfCop and released the Official Soundtrack in 2014 which won the 2015 WCMA Award for Metal/Heavy Recording of the Year. Their sophomore LP, Brotherhood of the Ram, released in 2013 through RidingEasy Records was nominated for the 2015 JUNO Metal/Hard Album of the Year as well as the Polaris Music Prize. Their debut LP, Born To Deal in Magic: 1952-1976, was also nominated for the Polaris Music Prize in 2012.

"Instrumental party machines Shooting Guns are at it again, and this time the Saskatoon desertrockers have brought friends ZAUM in on the act. A fitting counterpoint to Shooting Guns’ unassuming earthiness, New Brunswick-based ZAUM brings their Yeti-hunt to life with a beguiling combination of melodic charisma and supernatural physicality."
- Christine LC, BeatRoute, Calgary, AB

2015 Metal Recording of the Year
Locked in their studio during a -50 cold spell during one of Canada's harshest winters on record, Shooting Guns gave themselves a crash course in composition and enlisted the talents of Toby Bond to create a cinematic score locked to every second of this action packed party movie. Not only is this the loudest album that the band has released yet, it's their first movie score soundtrack, first concept album, and it features more guitar solos than all their previous work combined.

Recorded by Shooting Guns at Pre-Rock Studios (Saskatoon, SK), mixed by SJ Kardash at Full Color Studios (Saskatoon, SK), and mastered by John McBain (San Francisco, CA). Cover art by Randy Ortiz.
