L.A. GUNS, featuring singer Phil Lewis and guitarist Tracii Guns, has released a new song called “Shattered Glass”
The track, which can be streamed below, is taken from the band’s upcoming studio album, “Black Diamonds“, which will arrive on April 14. This will be the fourth studio album since the much-welcome reunion of the band’s core foundation of Lewis and Guns. It will follow the well-received studio albums “The Missing Peace“, “The Devil You Know” and “Checkered Past“, plus the live release “Made In Milan“, and a covers EP “Another Xmas In Hell“.
Last October, Lewis posted the following message about “Black Diamonds” to his social media: “Incredibly happy to announce the completion of our forth record (post reunion). Great songs, fantastic playing and some of the best singing of my career. It’s heavy and dark in places and bright n breezy in others. It’s all over the place as per our usual style. I think it’s the best thing we’ve ever done but yeah I know I say that about all of them but I truly love this record and had fun recording parts on the tour wagon and then five intense days doing vocals with Mitch [Davis] in NYC. Of course the wait for it to drop will be excruciating but I’ll do my best to contain the excitement. Seriously it’s fantastic and you’re all gonna love it.”
Written and recorded over the course of 2022, “Black Diamonds” sees Guns, Lewis and company continuing on the same successful and inspiring sonic journey that they’ve been taking on their most recent albums. The band doesn’t shy away from flexing their hard rock influences as they always have, but also incorporates more introspective acoustic tracks reflective of their classic rock influences from the ’70s. This makes for a potent and highly listenable cocktail of an album in “Black Diamonds“.
