As the revival of the classic ’80s hard rock and heavy metal scene continues unabated here in the 21st century, one reunion has been at the top of the wish-lists of many a fan for a long time: the songwriting combination of Tracii Guns and Philip Lewis under the L.A. Guns banner. What once seemed like a distant memory with no hope of returning has now come around and fans are about to be rewarded for keeping their fingers crossed and their hopes up.

That’s right Tracii Guns and Phil Lewis are back together as L.A. Guns. Their new album, The Missing Peace, is set for release on October 13th.

“The Missing Peace is truly an album by definition. It’s a collection of music that I have been working on for about 12 years with various styles of rock music. From blues to classical influences, these are all hard-hitting songs. I am very proud of all of the contributions to this album by other members and writers. L.A. Guns fans are in for a treat,” says Tracii Guns.

L.A. Guns never looked like the pretty poster boys that so many of their peers did, but more the band that you would be terrified to bump into an alley as they would likely be carrying switchblades and ready for a fight. But despite having many a song to back up that image, they could also write powerful ballads (see the smash hit, “The Ballad Of Jayne” for Exhibit A of this argument) that showed there was some serious songwriting chops in the band. Said chops are fully on display on The Missing Peace, arguably one of the most vital and exciting releases in the band’s storied catalog.

The story of how we got from the band’s powerful early years to here has already been well documented, so no need to rehash it. What’s important to know and understand is that the driving force of all those classic L.A. Guns songs, Tracii and Phil, are back and in a BIG way. Feeling inspired and excited like they did when they first started out, but with many years of wisdom and experience under their belts, The Missing Peace will surely please fans of the band’s classic albums (the self-titled debut, Cocked And Loaded, and Hollywood Vampires) as well as their widely heralded “comeback” albums (Man In The Moon and Waking The Dead). In fact, this album feels like the next logical step after the critically heralded Waking The Dead album and shows a band invigorated and ready to bash you over the head, as well as “wow” you with some epic, slower songs, proving you don’t always needs a semi-truck to run people over.
