The band commented, “We wanted to feature women as the subject of the video, not as an object. Feminine strength and girl power are themes that are very relevant at this moment and are uncharacteristic of most hard rock videos. We have a powerful love song in ‘Fly’ and our goal was to exhibit passion and feeling in a relatively unique way for our genre of music.”  

PISTOLS AT DAWN deliver hard-hitting hooks, magnetic melodies and intricate instrumentation with old school arena-size ambition on ASCENSION. The album was recorded with Grammy Award-winning producer and engineer Sylvia Massy (Tool, System Of A Down, Johnny Cash) who praised the band’s “bright, modern, driving aggression” while lauding the album for its “angular guitars and other-wordly vocals” which “crown the super-human strength of these tracks.” The group shared the first single, “The Truth,” in June which introduced new vocalist Cris Hodges (In The End: The Premiere Linkin Park Experience). Nodding to 90’s alternatives with a personalized twist, Indie Pulse Music described it as “heavy music unafraid to push the boundaries of rock while maintaining catchy melodies and deep messages.”
