In a press release distributed by the band, Jon Caspi & The First Gun revealed that the Garden State Punk-Rock three-piece is currently in the Little Eden recording studio of none other than the modern-day Pied Piper of Asbury Punk acts (he recently recorded with The Obvious and Lost In Society, among others), and legendary guitar maestro of the Bouncing Souls, Pete “The Pete” Steinkopf where the two camps are working on the outfit’s upcoming debut release.
“Pete has been a great help in putting the punk back into my tunes,” expressed Caspi, who’s solo works have gravitated toward the Americana-end of the Rock spectrum of late. “He is great to work with and I am really excited about how this album is coming out.”
“I am really stoked about these recordings!” Caspi continued. “I have been a longtime fan of the Souls and working with him has been a huge personal thrill.”
The album, which has yet to be named will be a 10-track collection and has yet to be named, though it is expected to be released later this Summer.
“He [Caspi] is great to work with and I am really excited about how this album is coming out,” said Steinkopf, who bestowed some fret play upon a track named “DJ,” video of which can be viewed below:
Jon Caspi & The First Gun will be at The Brighton Bar in Long Branch next Friday, the 24th, on a stacked bill that includes the Progressive-Dance-Metal of Hyla Brook, as well as Matt Wade, and Underwater Country Club.
