Black Pistol Fire is a Canadian rock and roll duo that splits their time between Toronto, Ontario and Austin, Texas. Their wild and energetic rock and roll sound has been described as a mix of classic southern rock and garage punk, garnering comparisons to early Kings of Leon, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Black Keys, and Clutch. It's clear that the band's sound spans many different eras and subgenres, relying on a classic rock and roll sound that has been updated for our modern times.
The group features Kevin McKeown on guitar/lead vocals and Eric Owen on drums. The two have been friends since kindergarten and began playing music together in high school, when they discovered a shared passion for rock and roll music. They eventually became the founding members of rock and roll trio The Shenanigans and recorded an LP titled Bombshell Baby. After things with The Shenanigans and Toronto got stale, McKeown and Owen wanted a change of scenery and to try out something new, so they packed up their instruments and headed south. The duo finally settled down in Austin, Texas in 2009 and Black Pistol Fire was born.
