"British “maths”-rockers, TTNG, create a wall of sound that transcends their numbers. Tim Collis’ frantic tapping, finger picking, and Spanish stylings form the framework for their erratic blend of delicious notation. His tablature and chord progressions are so desirable that they’ve been made available for sale. Constant, extreme chord changes in odd tunings flow over dance-able beats. Ethereal vocals swoon over bold, echoing bass lines. The drum kit delivers rim shots, cymbal pings and driving floor toms galore while transforming their ever-evolving rhythm.

The Math Rock Blog’s: Live Video Interview with This Town Needs Guns
This Town Needs Guns stand in the freezing cold and joke their way through a trying to be serious interview by The Mathrock Blog - If you have ever seen TTNG’s facebook profile photos you will understand why “serious” is not what they are best at… Their new album comes out on January 22nd and it’s a real gem. We thinks it’s “Cat Fantastic” - Posted by Sargent House

TTNG SHOW DETAILS & UPDATES
Adventure, Stamina & Anger - Out Now
Enjoy! Order it on 7” Vinyl limited Editions.
New 7” Album News & Photo Winners!
We are delighted to announce the upcoming This Town Needs Guns 7” release coming on Sargent House. It has two tracks, the last recordings that will have Stu on vocals. We will be releasing it digitally everywhere on October 11, 2011 and will be taking pre-orders for this limited edition 7” vinyl soon! You will be able to download the tracks right away when you pre-order starting on or around October 1st.
Congratulations go out to the winning photos that made the covers!
“We chose two photographs after a few hours of deliberation and decided that Oswaldo Guadarrama and Ousseynou Cissé’s photographs best represented the look we wanted to achieve for this release. The photos struck a chord with us and we definitely are very happy that these lovely gentlemen’s photographs sit well with the overall finished vinyl. We knew as soon as we looked that the images that they were great shots and they were always at the top of the pile from then on.” - TTNG
And in NEW This Town Needs Guns Album news!!
“we are currently planning our next tours and have booked the recording studio. We will be shipping Ed Rose of Black Lodge Recording (Appleseed Cast, Get Up Kids, Motion City Soundtrack, etc.) over to the most United of Kingdoms to help us get these tones down onto magnetic tape. ” - TTNG
PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION for Album Cover of 7” RELEASE
You may or may not know that we will be releasing a 7” containing two songs. We have continued writing for our forthcoming album, but two tracks are complete with vocals from one Stuart Smith, which we are planning to release this Summer. We will be recording these in July and are looking to prepare the artwork soon.
We are now looking to our wonderful fans to help us complete this release by us holding a photography competition. So what we are wanting is for you to send us a photograph (one entry per person) and we will choose our favourite image to be the sleeve artwork for the upcoming vinyl, which will be released through the awesome SARGENT HOUSE.
The main requirements are that the photo needs to be TAKEN BY YOU and to be high enough resolution to print. We have a design chap (Jamie (me)) who can help you with any issues you might have and can prepare the photo for the artwork/layout if you don’t know how.
• The photo will be at least 2272 x 1704 pixels (4mp) But the higher the better.
• CMYK (but that is easy to do!)
• 300dpi (as above!)
• NO photoshopping/design elements allowed
• NO pornography or disturbing images and nothing abusive or insulting to any race, sex or religion.
• NO cruelty towards any animal/living organism.
• NO using other people’s images or stealing. Thieves are lame as f*ck.
• One entry per person
• If a human appears in the image, you need to have their explicit permission for the image to be used. (this means a signature from them for permission to print the photo.)
• NO images of strangers/crowds of people.
The subject is entirely up to you.
The winning photo will be chosen by us, we will not tolerate bribery and are by no means swayed by ‘interesting’ offers. The winner will receive a signed copy of the vinyl and any other merch we have which is likely to be a t-shirt and a tab book. Also you will be credited on the sleeve and you will be generally awesome in the eyes of Thor, and us.
Good luck and we look forward to seeing the entries. :)
Email: thistownneedsguns.uk (at) gmail.com with your entry attached. Title your email thusly: Photography Competition.
Closing date: Thursday 30th June.

REVIEW: Animals USA
Sargent House seem to be cornering the market on math rock, but This Town Needs Guns is one of their finest finds yet. Picking up the U.S. release for the UK band’s debut full-length, Animals, this is just the type of delicate and emotional, intricately woven songs that all of us hailing Look Mexico for can get fully behind.
Usually when using the term “pleasant,” all one can think of is dreamy songs with a fairly alluring mood, but failing to rise too far above that. Animals tends to break that mold, with songs that are certainly pleasant on the surface, but so complex and subtly dynamic throughout that they require attention and observation to reward the listener in the process.
Frontman Stuart Smith, with only vocals as his duty, is also utilized much more as a singer than American Football would employ Mike Kinsella, or how often Matt Agrella sang on This Is Animal Music. He adds a new level of emotion to the proceedings while consistently refraining from getting too earnest or overbearing.
