After having recently announced his upcoming sophomore solo album release 'Brand New Revolution' via Century Media Records in Europe, Australia and South America, Dismanic / eOne in North America and King Records in Japan, Ozzy Osbourne / Firewind guitarist GUS G. is now ready to launch a few more details about it.
'Brand New Revolution' will be released in Europe on July 24, 2015 and comes with artwork (which can be seen above!) once again created by Gustavo Sazes / www.abstrata.net, who already worked with GUS G. on his debut release 'I Am The Fire', and also took care of artwork duties by bands such as Arch Enemy, Kamelot and also Firewind in the past.
The album features guest vocal appearances by Jeff Scott Soto (ex-Journey, Talisman), Elize Ryd (Amaranthe), Jacob Bunton (Adler, Lynam) and Mats Lev'n (Candlemass, ex-Yngwie Malmsteen).

GUS G. checked in with the following comment about the album: 'As I'm putting the final touches on 'Brand New Revolution', I wanted to give out a bit about the new music. 'The Quest" is the only instrumental of the album and it's a heavy, high energy, technical track. The rest of the album once again features collaborations with some awesome singers / songwriters such as the legendary Jeff Scott Soto, Mats Lev'n, JacobBunton and the awesome ElizeRyd of Amaranthe. I feel the album as a whole has many influences, from classic Hard Rock / Metal to more modern and current sounds. Stay tuned as more info will be revealed in the coming days'.
'Brand New Revolution' was recorded with Jay Ruston (Stone Sour, Anthrax, Steel Panther, etc.) and mixed by Mike Fraser (Metallica, AC/DC, Van Halen, Aerosmith, etc.). Just as on 'I Am The Fire', the core of GUS G.'s recording group consisted of Jo Nunez (Firewind) on drums andMarty O' Brien (Lita Ford band) on bass.
GUS G. has recently also announced a few more first summer live-dates to launch 'Brand New Revolution'.
