The band's latest Album 'Hombres,' features prominently in the Samuel L. Jackson-starring film 'Damaged.' Recorded and produced with Simon Bloor (Trevor Horne) and mixed by Daryl Thorpe ( Foo Fighters ), the album showcases GUN's continued evolution and unparalleled rock prowess. The first single from the album, 'All Fired Up,' sets the tone for an album that Metal Talk hails as "a real celebration and a genuine contender for Album of the Year," receiving a perfect 5-star review.

Following the success of 'The Calton Songs' and receiving prestigious awards at Hard Rock Hell and the Scottish Music Awards, GUN continues to solidify its legendary status in rock music.
