Gunrunner welcomes our new front man:

There's an old expression - "anything good, is worth waiting for" and Gunrunner can honestly say that this has been well and truly the case during our long and painful search for a permanent front man. It’s taken more than a year, and we’ve had to say "thanks but no thanks" to many who have applied for the job.  We’ve searched far and wide without success because the band made no secret of the fact that it's all about quality.  The standards were set high when it came to finding the key man to front Gunrunner.  No one but the best would do.  


We are very excited to announce that in AL-X, Gunrunner now has a genuinely top-drawer lead singer whose CV says just about everything there is to say.  Just wait until you hear him live, which God-willing will happen before the end of the year.  Be sure to check out the new demo recordings of AL-X on the videos page here.


To have found a guy who has shared stages opening for the likes of Iron Maiden, Scorpions, Def Leppard, Whitesnake and Dokken to crowds of up to 30,000, is more than we could have hoped for.  And given that AL-X considers Gunrunner a top-notch, professional outfit that meets his needs and ambitions, is a huge compliment to us all. 


A revitalised and exciting set list has been agreed upon by the band and we are all busy getting up-to-speed during this strange period in our lives.  Many of the Gunrunner favourites will continue to feature in our live performances with many new tracks as well. 


Most of the headline gigs and festivals that were cancelled, have been re-scheduled for 2021 and Gunrunner cannot wait to unleash our new Classic Rock weapon to the general public.  AL-X and Markus are busy recording demo songs so everyone can have a chance to hear what we already know. 


Let’s all welcome AL-X to Gunrunner. We think this could be a match made in heaven !!
