Austin, Texas-based Gentlemen Rogues celebrate aggressive guitar-pop with punk-inflected energy; polished, precise songwriting; and hooks as sharp and sleek as the Rickenbackers they bang them out on.
They’re a four-piece, drawing inspiration from U.K. legends like The Jam, XTC, The Smiths, and Teenage Fanclub, while steadfastly blasting their own course through an American, indie rock canon shaped by The Replacements, Sugar, Jawbreaker, and Superchunk … Manchester by way of Minneapolis.
The band have just released the new single “Do the Resurrection!” on seven-inch, half-n-half, colored vinyl via Denver, Colorado indie label Snappy Little Numbers. Check out the video below:
Of the track, the band says,
“Do the Resurrection! is a fuzzed-out blast of power pop that playfully tackles love and loss, life, and death, dying and undying devotion, rinsing and repeating. It also has a dueling guitar solo that gives White Reaper a run for their money.”
