Latest release: GUNS FOR HIRE

Since launching in January of 2022, Tailgunner have taken the world of underground Heavy Metal by the scruff of the neck, and grasp with an iron first. A blitzkrieg singles, the debut EP „Crashdive“ and two UK headline tours with multiple sold out dates all within their first six months of existence, proves the demand for true Heavy Metal is alive and well! “The greatest revelation British Metal has had in a decade and a half.”, states METAL RULES and praises their unique cocktail of power, speed, aggression and huge choruses. If you wanna know what to expect, simply imagine pure fucking armageddon! “We describe ourselves as ‘Laser Guided Riffs N’ Hooks that Kill!’ We’re fast, loud, catchy as hell and we’ll take your face off', states the band. '

After completing an extensive UK headline tour in summer of this year, Tailgunner are staking their claim to the future of the genre and have all eyes to the skies, ready to launch like a warhead. No holds barred, in your face Heavy Metal with no apologies! “I would call Tailgunner a Heavy Metal band. There is quite a bit of speed metal, and old school power Metal in there too“, says bass player Tom Hewson and names his mains inspiratons with Helloween, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, King Diamond and Judas Priest. You can feel their love for the 80s in every moment!

The five tracks of the „Crashdive“ MCD were mixed and mastered by Olof Wikström of Enforcer, another perfect match for Tailgunner. To sum it up, Tailgunner stand for pure Heavy Metal made for eternity!
