Pop Pistol

Creating original rock influenced by spacey bands from Pink Floyd to Muse and finding inspiration these days from Warpaint and Bat For Lashes, Pop Pistol is a three-piece that comes from San Antonio. Rich with a music legacy that is unknown even to locals, national recognition of San Antonio's indie rock community is lagging. Compelled to change this, Pop Pistol and friends initiated a modern music coalition, bringing the city's artists together in DIY solidarity. This is the essence of leadership the young men believe in.

The band began releasing recordings in 2006. Propelled by the arrival of their first full-length album 'Angelus' in late 2008, Pop Pistol steadily rose in visibility at home following up with the release of two more EPs; Shadow (2009) and Disappearing Edges (2011). This year's work has landed the guys on the cover of IngiteSA and labeled them Best Indie Rock Band in an annual readers poll from the San Antonio Current. The band has received noteworthy invitations to share the stage with various international artists, from La Vida Boheme, Sol Pereyra, and Zuzuka Poderosa, to Filter, Dev, and Minus the Bear.

Perhaps their greatest accomplishment comes with the release of 'Animal Prisms' in October 2012. 'Animal Prisms' was engineered and produced 100% by the band alone with vinyl mastering credit to Grammy nominated Bob Catlin. The album intertwines lyrics and artwork with themes of instinct-chase, catch, and release. From start to finish, 'Animal Prisms' has an ambience that resembles a tribal exorcism; purging what haunts you, providing a room for it to breathe in. Pop Pistol presents 'Animal Prisms' through their own imprint label, Mitote Records.
