  • MNotez: How long have you been together? How’d you form?
    • Roll Out The Guns: We’ve been a band for a little under a year. Tyler and Mike started playing at our former bass player’s house, Luke. Craig was invited over for a jam and was inducted soon after. (Enjoy the ride was the first song put together by Mike, Tyler and Craig). Luke graduated from college and moved back to his home town. Gerard came into the picture as Luke was leaving. We we’re working on recording an EP as Gerard joined so he had to learn the songs as we we’re recording them! That’s been the crew ever since!
  • MNotez: How’d you come up with the name Roll Out The Guns?
    • Roll Out The Guns: We never had a name for the project going into it… we tried a few name generators online to no avail. Mike’s roommate at the time actually came up with ‘Roll Out The Guns’ based on us living on an island – St. Augustine Beach – and because of the old feel of downtown St. Augustine – we like to drink too haha. We all admire the pirate attitude and way of life – how musicians should be.
