Shotgun Express Searching For New Guitarist

November 11, 2012

German rockers Shotgun Express are searching for a new guitarist after the departure of Scott Damn.

Remaining guitarist Johnny Cobra tells, “After three years Scott decided to leave the band due to personal reasons. Of course we are not happy about this decision but we have to accept it. Thank you to Scott for the time were we went through thick and thin together and we wish him all the best in his musical future.”

Any guitarists that want to be a member of the Shotgun Express family are encouraged to send an email to — including your name, age, where you’re from and a link to sound samples if available.

Founded back in 2009, Shotgun Express quickly established themselves in the rock’n roll underground scene in Germany, documented by more than 60 shows in two years with bands like Rhino Bucket, V8 Wankers, Vain, Tokyo Blade and Kissin’ Dynamite. Besides their festival appearances at Shout It Out Loud and H.E.A.T, the band toured Germany in the spring of 2011 with British rockers The Quireboys as well as a short headline tour in Belgium.

‘Gypsy Blues’, Shotgun Express’ self-produced debut album, was mixed and mastered in Sweden’s Studio Underground by Pelle Saether (Psychopunch, Grand Design) and features guest performances by The Quireboys piano player Keith Weir, Saidian keyboardist Markus Bohr and Pump singer Marcus Jurgens. The songs on ‘Gypsy Blues’, referred to as ‘a very energetic and enjoyable sleaze rock romp’ by SleazeRoxx, brings back the spirit of the seventies and eighties, where rock’n roll was about getting laid, getting wasted and having fun.
