Steamhammer/SPV has announced the signing of EAT THE GUN. The trio, consisting of Hendrik Wippermann (vocals, guitar), Gereon Homann (drums) and new addition Peter Bergmüller (bass) will release its 10-song fourth studio album, "Stripped To The Bone", in November. A single, "Loner", will precede the full-length CD in October.

Says Wippermann: "Steamhammer/SPV have always been our favorite label, not least because of MOTÖRHEAD, so we're really happy to be working with Olly Hahn and his excellent team from now on. We can hardly wait to hold the new CD with the legendary Steamhammer/SPV logo in our hands. Definitely a magical moment for us."

Formed in 2002, EAT THE GUN has released the studio albums "Cross Your Fingers" (2006), "Super Pursuit Mode Aggressive Thrash Distortion" (2009) and "Runner" (2011) and made the top ten of the German DJ Metal/Rock chart for eight weeks in 2009 and the Top 20 of the American college radio chart in 2011. The band has played more than 650 concerts to date, inspiring fans at the Taubertal Festival, the Big Day Out and the Wacken Open Air and appearing alongside acts such as DIE TOTEN HOSEN, HIM, DANKO JONES, DUFF MCKAGAN's LOADED, DONOTS, MUSTASCH, BACKYARD BABIES and HARDCORE SUPERSTAR.

For Steamhammer/SPV's A&R manager Olly Hahn, the signing of EAT THE GUN marks a special moment, too. "I have been watching this band for some time and am really impressed with their latest material," he says. "Every time I hear the songs, I can't suppress a big grin. We and the band's many fans are guaranteed to have lot of fun with 'Stripped To The Bone' this coming November."
