Aaron Carpenter & The Revelators unveil video for 'Gun Smoke Girl'

AC & the Revelators have just released their "Gun Smoke Girl" official video, just in time for NZ Music Month.

The track, from their debut album Pretty Lies, leads us to  their "new music" project; their latest E.P Roll With The Punches, also expected to be released in NZ Music Month.

The video was directed by Amber Beaton and filmed on Waiheke Island where The Revelators are based.

A classic "band are drinking, vampire arrives and murders everybody" rock'n'roll, dusk till dawn clip, the song tells the story of a beautiful woman arriving from out of space and ripping Aaron's heart from his chest, but this time Amber's creative interpretation sees this hot vampire go for the jugular. Either way Aaron never gets alive.

Aaron Carpenter & The Revelators have become an integral part of New Zealand’s steadily growing Americana Scene, seeing the band perform at Spark Arena’s Southern Fork Americana Festival, to recently supporting 80's icons Big Country.

Debut album Pretty Lies  was released in 2017 with producer Nick Abbot (Robert Plant and The Datsuns) at the helm, which conjured up a raw rock incarnation of their deep-seated country and blues sound.
