Black Pistol Fire gives ‘Hope In Hell’ with explosive new single

The Austin-based rock duo have released the official version for  ‘Hope in Hell’ as their first single released this year, a track that is all too relevant during this strange moment in time.

Written and recorded two years ago, garage rock duo Black Pistol Fire’s new hard-hitting slow-burning rock song features solid vocals and wild guitar solos from frontman Kevin McKeown.

Kevin says of the song,

“I was wrestling with a lot of things in my life when I was writing the song and the words. Part of it is about the internal battle everyone experiences, and then another part is about that struggle you go through as a band, because Eric and I have learned over the years that you have to give up a lot in order to gain a lot. It takes a lot of inspiration and drive if you want to do this.”

The band previously released a “homemade” version of the song in July, recorded during quarantine, and is also included with the official release.

The pair are currently finishing up work on their sixth studio album, co-produced by Jacob Sciba (Gary Clark Jr, Gov’t Mule, Warren Haynes) and mixer Vance Powell (White Stripes, Raconteurs, Chris Stapleton), which will be released next winter via Black Hill Records.

Since last year, the group has given fans a slew of jam-packed songs including ‘Level’, ‘Black Halo’, ‘Pick Your Poison’, and ‘Well Wasted’.

We reckon once the album is finished, the long wait will have been all the more rewarding for fans!


The new album follows their 2017 album Deadbeat Graffiti which contains their breakthrough hit ‘Lost Cause’.

Black Pistol Fire consists of guitarist and vocalist Kevin McKeown and drummer Eric Own. They have performed live in some of the world’s biggest festivals and shows including Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Voodoo Music & Arts Festival.

Their performance at Voodoo Fest 2017 has been hailed as the festival’s best performance by Consequence of Sound.

Seattle station KEXP have praised the band, “Black Pistol Fire’s sweaty Southern garage rock is capable of incorporating both bluesy tracks and jam-band jangles, and they vacillate well between wild guitar solos and drastic shifts in time-signatures.”
