Melbourne based outfit Shotgun Mistress is the evolutionary love child of guitarist Matt Wilcock.
Matt has been the metal axe brain behind acts such as Ackercocke, The Bezerker and Abremelin and has also made it to the top 100 greatest metal guitarists according to the well known UK Author Joel McIver. (The best-known of his books is the best-selling Justice For All: The Truth About Metallica)
Link to the 100 Greatest Metal Guitarists: (Matt Wilcock #98)
Banded together in late 2018 alongside Sub Rosa & Mr Stitcher dummer David Lee the two began writing music for a new rock act with influences in the vein of Alterbridge, Velvet Revolver, Slash & Motley Crue to name a few.
Quite seamlessly, bass player Ben 'Benny' Curnow (Steel Affliction, Earth) and front man Glenn Patrick (Collegians) joined not too long after filling the immediate spots required to begin writing an album.
Within the first 3 months the guys had written and demoed their first 16 songs, recorded their first single and live video for a late May 2018 release ahead of their debut album dropping sometime in October 2019.
Now set to take the stage and begin performing from June whilst recording the album, the band works hard at putting together a live performance and a myriad of online and radio promotions ready for the coming months.
