Gentlemen Rogues Short Info

Since early 2010, Austin TX-based Gentlemen Rogues have celebrated aggressive guitar pop, with punk-inflected energy, polished, precise songwriting, and hooks as sharp and sleek as the Rickenbackers they bang them out on. This is a four-piece for Now People, drawing inspiration from UK visionaries like The Who, Elvis Costello & the Attractions, and The Jam, while steadfastly blasting their own course through an American indie rock canon shaped by Ted Leo & the Pharmacists, Jawbreaker, and Superchunk. Collectively, Danny Dunlap (vocals, guitar), Cordon Simons (guitar, vocals), Brandon Tucker (bass), and Josh Power (drums) crank out catchy, amplified treble kickers, mixing powder keg intensity, classic melodies, and brash theatrics into a 200-proof distillation of brazen rock ā€˜nā€™ roll.

Consistently winning over audiences with their vital and urgent live shows, Gentlemen Rogues have shared the stage with such diverse musical outfits as the Lemonheads, Smoking Popes, Ultimate Fakebook, Field Music, Electric Six, The Soft White Sixties, Future of the Left, The Life and Times, Ume, Theophilus London, and The Dandy Warhols.

In their campaign to rule the airwaves, Gentlemen Rogues have garnered radio play throughout the United States on various college and Internet radio shows, as well as across the pond on BBC Radio 6's Tom Robinson Show. Having completed their first UK tour in May 2014, Gentlemen Rogues released a single last June, "Mocking Love Out Of Nothing At All," on transparent purple vinyl (w/ digital download) via Shifting Sounds and they already have a new EP, "A History So Repeating" released by End Sounds in April, 2015. This EP finds the band blending lush, lyrical and instrumental textures to create a sonic cocktail sure to intoxicate discerning ears.
