This is Gunshot Blue’s EPK.

Gunshot Blue is a South African psychedelic blues act born among burning incense, black ink, prayer beads, tattooed skin and religious icons back in 2014 at SA Hardcore Social Club, Johannesburg. The Gunshot Blue flint-stone was set off by founding members Frans Borman(vocals) and Pepi Dimevski (guitars). More often than not they are joined by Kevin Hughes (bass) and Wayne Pictor (drums) forming a deadly dressed, double barrel, sonic shotgun. The first bullet firing a hypnotic, voodoo infused, acoustic blues set. The second; an explosive, high energy, electric rock and roll set. Gunshot Blue is not just a spirited live performance. Gunshot Blue is a psychoactive baptism leaving the listener with intensified sensory perception and extreme feelings of euphoria. Averaging 25 shows a year, Gunshot Blue have played bars, restaurants, hotels, a book museum, backpackers, lounges, fund raisers, birthday parties, a sculpture park, a garden, a horse farm, holiday resorts, barber shops, an old prison, an amphitheater, a bikers club, a bikers fest, a vintage car museum and most of the major festivals in the country. Gunshot Blue’s debut EP “12 396km” was released November 2014. Their debut full length album “Until the last prayer” have just been mastered and will soon see the light and night of your day.
