GYPSY PISTOLEROS announce new record deal with Off Yer Rocka and release the new single ‘The Name’s Django!’
It is with great pleasure that Off Yer Rocka Recordings sister label Heavy Rocka Recordings announce the arrival of the brilliantly twisted sleazy punk’n’flamenco rollers Gypsy Pistoleros to the family. The band have signed a new two-album deal with Off yer Rocka (Heavy Rocka Records) https://offyerrocka.com/ joining such stellar artists as The Quireboys / Twister / Ryders Creed / Gorilla Riot / Ward XVI / Black Aces / Gin Annie / Massive, etc
“We are totally thrilled to have joined the Hard Rock Hell Empire, by signing to Off Yer Rocka (Heavy Rocka Records). The support their DJ’s and community have given us has been incredible. It was a perfect fit, they have totally embraced the Pistoleros unique flamenco, punk, rumba rock n roll phenomena. We cant wait to release more music and celebrate with everyone at the upcoming Festivals.” said singer, Gypsy Lee Pistolero.
Gypsy Pistoleros follow up their Number 1 Hard Rock Hell Radio Chart hit, with the second single ‘The Name’s Django!’ out 9th April on pre-save, from the forthcoming Album, Latin Rock’s Appetite for Destruction, ‘The Mescalito Vampires’ out on Heavy Rocka Records August 14th.
‘The Name’s Django’ sees the classic song Mr.Bojangles ripped apart and rewritten in this rumba flamenco punk n roll rendition. A soft-story ballad about a Mexican Outlaw turned hero ‘Django’ morphs into a rip-roaring romp that oozes marachi punk gunslinger vibes in this wild ride! Viva la revolution!
Gypsy Pistoleros first live gig announced in support of The Mescalito Vampires will be the Hard Rock Hell Sleaze Festival at the O2 Academy Sheffield on 28th August 2021.
A special graphic illustrated story video, by artist Paul Roper of Demon King Entertainment, accompanies the release.
Live Tour & Festival dates will be announced as confirmed!

Gypsy Pistoleros are best described as being the ideal house band for the fictitious Titty Twister bar of Rodriguez’s From Dusk till Dawn. Between the nods to Morricone’s tense, tumbleweed atmospheres and the Gypsy Kings’ manic Mediterranean energy, a New York Dolls raw glam spark and a surplus of prime G ’n’ R attitude, the Pistoleros‘ sonic style is captured to the full with the release of an album they have always threatened!
Gypsy Pistoleros remain something truly unique and interesting in today’s predictable musical landscape. Combining their truly unique mix of flamenco rumba which gleefully collides with old school punk rock ‘n’ roll riffs in a head on collision. In the best rock ‘n’ roll tradition, with big hooks, attitude, and sleaze. Yet those flamenco breaks got into your head and refuse to leave – this hybrid rocks.
“The Pistoleros are sheer musical escapism” – Malcolm Dome Classic Rock Magazine
“Once in a while something special comes along and turns the musical world on its axis and makes you listen to music and lyrics in a totally different way. That something is Gypsy Pistoleros.” _ WeBleedMusic
“Gypsy Pistoleros are a thrill-a-minute collection of melodic eye-patch swagger that smells of exotic spices and forbidden concubines. The Gypsy Pistoleros sound like Hanoi Rocks, if Hanoi Rocks were sultans and snakecharmers.” – Sleazegrinder-Classic Rock Magazine
“This, actually, is as good as sleaze ever got in the last decade. Gypsy Pistoleros were, and still are, a breath of fresh air. You will never hear another band like this. They are the greatest flamenco sleaze glam band ever.” Maximum Volume Music – Andrew Thorley
“Gypsy Pistoleros dub themselves “The World’s Greatest Flamenco Sleaze Glam Rock ‘N’ Roll band Ever!” Doesit work? Are you fucking kidding me? When Kris Jones drops the mariachi trumpet, it’s on!” BEAVER BUZZ RADIO – Dave Wilks
“Can you imagine Sleaze, Glam, Hard Rock, Punk and some Flamenco rolled into one with a whole lot of Spanish attitude oozing out it? Imagine no more – The Gypsy Pistoleros will give it all to you, and you will love every minute of it and want to reach for a tequila shot”.- ***** Michele Storm Hairspray Heaven
“GYPSY PISTOLEROS have been carving out a unique niche for themselves in the crazy world of rock n’ roll. From the New York Dolls to Guns N’ Roses via El Bronco the Gypsy Pistoleros have got a stunning TexMex thing going on. Gypsy Pistoleros are the undisputed kings of Flamenco Sleaze”– Pulse Alternative Magazine
This mongrel offspring of fiery flamenco/rumba passion and gritty gutter glam, was born roamin’ somewhere between Barcelona and Worcester. Standing alone in musical ancestry and sum sound, they are one of those most rare acts who can honestly claim the tag ‘unique’
A full comic featuring GYPSY PISTOLEROS ‘The Devil’s Done Deal!’ will be released alongside the album. From reknown artist Paul Roper -Demon King Entertainment.
“Deputised by the Devil himself the Gypsy Pistoleros must hunt down 999 demonic souls to earn their freedom from the curse. The Devil’s fine print says for every soul collected should an innocent die 3 more are added to the list! Time to settle the bill!”
