GLASWEGIAN rock band GUN will appear at the MacArts Theatre in Galashiels this week as part of a UK tour to celebrate the release of ‘The Calton Songs.’

The Scottish rock legends are still going strong after three decades and have done it all over the years - touring with the Rolling Stones to Bon Jovi, MTV Europe awards, eight UK Top 40 hit singles, three UK Top 20 albums

The album is available on Cherry Red-coloured vinyl, CD, cassette and digital, and is a full-blooded celebration of the band’s career so far with enthusiastic and brand new acoustic reinterpretations of the songs that made their name.

‘The Calton Songs’ takes its name from the area of Glasgow where the band grew up, and where they still write their music.

Jools Gizzi said: “When the pandemic hit we realised that it was the perfect time to try and counteract the bleakness that was all around.

“It felt like we couldn’t write anything, or of course tour. Out of that darkness came a desire to completely rework these songs that we know the fans love, and bring a different, stripped-down vibe”.

Dante Gizzi added: “It’s ironic that those feelings of negativity led to something so positive, a celebration of our career up to now”.
