The new groundbreaking electro-rock act play a FREE GIG at S45 at the Brighton Electric on 23 November 2019.
Add crunching riffs and sharp electro beats to gravel-voiced, hook-laden songs with rousing lyrics and soaring choruses and what do you get? Punt Guns!
The new cyber rock outfit have been causing a stir in the music world with a recent avalanche of singles, remixes and videos, and will play their first ever UK live date in Brighton on 23 November 2019 at S45 at the Brighton Electric.
The must-see FREE gig will feature songs from their forthcoming eponymous debut album, out early 2020, including their the newly released singles 1.C.A.R.U.S, B1G Bang and Cyber Dreams.
Both tracks have been remixed by leading producer/DJs Janette Slack and Future Funk Squad’s Glen Nicholls respectively, cementing Punt Guns’ reputation as a groundbreaking dance/rock crossover act that are as at home in the rock venue as on the dancefloor.
“Yes, our music is dark, but it’s also uplifting,” says Punt Guns’ guitarist and co-songwriter GG. “The world doesn’t need another doom-laden rock band or depressing emo outfit. We’re looking to push the boundaries both musically and lyrically. We’re living in a complex world where fake news is the new normal. The myths we’re spun need to be exploded. Transparency and openness are our new weapons. Don’t hide behind doubt. Find the truth. Open your eyes.”
It’s certainly time to open your eyes – and ears – to Punt Guns. Catch them live for free at S45 at the Brighton Electric on 23 November 2019.

In 2017, GG and Marek Bero formed Punt Guns. A meeting of minds and musical sensibilities that has forged a landscape of electronic rock, electronica and pop, with yearning anthems that seek to bring new life to the darkest corners of our existence.
Comprising two core members, Bero (bass guitar and lead vocals) and GG (guitar and other-worldly sounds), along with Jiri Novotny (guitar, keyboards) and Dan Western (drums), Punt Guns have spent the past two years creating their first album, set for release early 2020.
Finding an alliance with legendary award-winning producers Andy Wright and Gavin Goldberg (Simple Minds, Jeff Beck, and more), Punt Guns have forged an apocalyptic sci-fi love epic that will find disciples globally.
“I think it’s one of the best records I’ve made,” says Wright.
