Finnish rock band Blind Channel are back with a brand new single ‘Gun’ which was released on 3rd July via the Ranka Kustannus label. The single is taken from their 3rd album ‘Violent Pop’ and has been produced by Jonas Olsson. The track has been mixed by the man behind the biggest Volbeat hits and the Amaranthe sound, Danish sound wizard Jacob Hansen.
“Gun is a song about using music as our weapon. We write songs to cope with dark times and to get back at our critics. When we wrote ‘Gun’ we decided we wouldn’t hold back our words anymore. It’s all point-and-shoot from now on.” BLIND CHANNEL
