“The instrumental psych-rock band from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, knows how to choogle, burn and rip like Hawkwind thrown into the middle of a Mad Max set. That’s why director Lowell Dean tapped Shooting Guns to score Wolfcop, a 2014 horror-comedy that’s exactly as ridiculous/awesome as you think it is.” — NPR

Canada's award-nominated psych sextet Shooting Guns premiere a new video via NPR today for a song from their soundtrack for the acclaimed cult horror-comedy film Wolfcop. The video for "Barnburner" was specially made by the film's creators, featuring further wild exploits of the Wolfcop character, available to watch and share HERE. (Direct YouTube link HERE.)

Shooting Guns' recent Barnburner EP was released via L.A.'s RidingEasy Records. The sometimes heavy, droning and sometimes Goblin-esque set is available to hear and share HERE.

The EP's tracks are culled from Shooting Guns' soundtrack to Wolfcop, which has taken in $30 million since its release in 2014. Wolfcop was the Netflix 'Movie of the Week' in April 2015.

Hailing from Saskatoon, SK, in the heart of the Canadian prairies, JUNO and Polaris Prize award nominees Shooting Guns are hard at work fortifying the heavy end of the psychedelic spectrum,  haunting the foggy moor between Sabbath-styled doom riffery and heavy pulse-riding kraut-rock.

Shooting Guns scored the soundtrack to Canadian horror-comedy WolfCop and released the official soundtrack in 2014 in partnership with One Way Static, RidingEasy Records, and Cinecoup. Their sophomore LP, Brotherhood of the Ram, released in 2013 through RidingEasy Records was nominated for the 2015 JUNO Metal/Hard Album of the Year as well as the Polaris Music Prize. Their debut LP, Born To Deal in Magic: 1952-1976, was also nominated for the Polaris Music Prize in 2012.

The Barnburner EP is available on 7" vinyl and download via RidingEasy Records as of July 14th, 2015.
