Sonata Cantata records announces the release of Pistol For Ringo’s “Better Left Broken” EP – Available now on Itunes – Featuring the single “Love Is Like Water” and a cover of the Bee Gee’s “Nights On Broadway”.
Named after a classic Spaghetti Western and completely unrelated to the ‘fab four’ (although if Ringo wants to roll around town ‘strapped’, we sure as hell aren’t going to judge), ‘Pistol for Ringo’ is back after 2003′s wildly successful “Solid State Neo-Hedonist”. Featuring original members Brian Murphy, Shane Smith, and Steve Arm, Pistol for Ringo have really grown into an indie-rock collective adding Philly-based singer-songwriter, Ben Arnold, and band-mate Matty Muir. A perfect example of the ‘rich getting richer’ (but in a cool non-Reaganomics way).
Playing everywhere from hipster joints in the 213-area code to opening for an S&M show in Vegas (not joking), Pistol 4 Ringo’s live shows are as unpredictable as their music. Just one of many reasons they have endeared themselves to indie rock fans and the college music charts.
Soooo, what’s the future for Pistol for Ringo you ask (and we’re glad you did)??? Working with famed producer Manny Nieto, along with musical contributions from the likes of Dave Catching and Rob Barbato, Pistol for Ringo proves they are indeed not “Better Left Broken.”
