Sometime in 2002, Matt Arbogast started using the name The Gunshy for his quiet bedroom recordings. The project has taken many roads before finding it’s current four piece lineup. Though the songs have become much louder at times, they have always retained Arbogast’s starkly honest lyrical approach. Last October, the band released a four song 7” entitled “At 35”. The ep was recorded at Arbogast’s 8AM studio/show space in Chicago. Included with the 7” is a compilation of 25 songs recorded at the space featuring Andrew Jackson Jihad, Cheap Girls, Andrew Bryant, Jay Jayle, Heligoats and others.
The band recently finished recording their sixth full-length at Dial Back Sound in Water Valley, MS (Iggy and the Stooges, AA Bondy, T-Model Ford, R.L. Burnside, Water Liars). Other releases include a collaborative 7″ with Andrew Jackson Jihad and “I Gave Too Much Time To The Wine & Other Collected EPs”, released on Yer Bird Records.
