Briefly Speaking...


"I wrote this before the pandemic and we all have our own Hell ... enjoy the madness!"

Burnt Out Wreck released their lyric video for single “This Is Hell,” the title track from the band’s album out now on Burnt Out Wreckords/Cherry Red.

The album can be purchased HERE.

Burnt Out Wreck features Lead Vocalist Gary Moat; Bassist Alex Carmichael; Drummer Paul Gray; and Guitarist/Backing Vocalist Miles Goodman.

“I wrote this before the pandemic and we all have our own Hell … enjoy the madness,” said Moat. “Thanks to Graham Gebbe for the live footage from Winterstorm 2019. We had a great time, also thanks to Mark Leary for creating such a brilliant lyric video at such short notice!”

‘This Is Hell’ is the second album to be released by Burnt Out Wreck.

This is Hell, the title says it all,” Moat stated. “It’s a hard hitting, fast paced more focused album. It’s an angry set of songs that follows on in the same vein as Swallow.”

Moat is no stranger to the music scene. Many will recognize him as the drummer and main songwriter for Heavy Pettin’.


For BURNT OUT WRECK, Moat traded the drum stool for the microphone and has handed the drumming chair to beater Gray. Moat then headed over the wall to the land of the kilt to recruit Carmichael on bass, best known from the 1980’s band, La Paz. Goodman, a long-time friend of Moat, joined as a guitarist, saying he is ‘thrilled’ to have bagged the job.

Moat himself has his own imitable style. He is compared frequently to Bon Scott and Marc Storace and he accepts this as a compliment. His vocal style was developed in Mother’s Ruin, the band that rose from the ashes of Heavy Pettin’ in 1991. A hiatus followed until 2011 when Mother’s Ruin supported Duff McKagan, played HRH Ibiza and the Bulldog Bash, all to great reviews & press interest. In 2014, he shut the the whole operation down in favor of song writing. BURNT OUT WRECK’S inception was unexpected but welcome! ROCK AINT DEAD….
