GENTLEMANS PISTOLS have been causing a stir on the underground for a while now with their debauched lyrics, killer melodies and general Northern rock 'n' roll bravado. Speaking about the new release, James Atkinson comments: "With this album, we tried to make a record that we would want to listen to; one that was heavy but melodic, intense but catchy, thoughtful but unruly. A record for reprobates and romantics, for gentlemen and hustlers.ˮ

The artwork for the new album was created by Leeds based John Pearson Illustration:
"The artwork encapsulates everything I put across in the title track, that Hustler's Row is a place for freaks, losers, lovers and those searching for something more from life. So we invite you to join us on the Row..." - James Atkinson.

Gents commented on the new track and video: "It's a harmony laden boogie about being disillusioned. The performance was shot at Staincross Working Man's Club just outside of Barnsley and then the other scenes were done in the surrounding area. David Pickering directed the video and did a fantastic job. It's basically an updated take on the Sweeney and programs of that ilk in which we are wanted, much like the A-Team, for a crime that we didn't commit."
