BRANDON GIBBS will release his new single, “Lost Boys,” on Friday, March 8, 2021, via Golden Robot Records.
The single can be pre-saved HERE.
“Lost Boys” is a pure rock tune and it shows the heavier, darker side of Gibbs, both lyrically and musically as it was written and recorded during the Covid-19 pandemic.
“’Lost Boys’ is a song for the people,” stated Gibbs. “As an artist it’s my job to put feelings into words and song. 2020 was like living in a nightmare for millions upon millions. From wildfires, a global pandemic, riots, a derecho, loss of so many lives, people not even having a chance to say final goodbye’s properly, shut-downs, loss of employment, closed business’s, stages for the arts being closed down and the one thing that brings us together like music events being prohibited… We all collectively got hit so many times that one can’t help but feel empty and lost. I won’t ever forget it and we all have long lasting scars from it. Sink into the lyrics as this isn’t about the good times rolling, this is about being so vulnerable you can’t help but scream it out loud! “I don’t want to be a lost boy AGAIN!”
Gibbs is best known for being a cryptic, spiritual, radiant songwriter & national live performer. He’s also a public speaker and a major advocate for anti- bullying.
His passion for guitar began around the age of eight. At the age of 14, he and his twin formed The Gibbs Brothers Band and would perform together for the next 10 years while also writing and recording together. Their reputation for harmonies, instrumentation, and pure entertainment earned them more opportunities than most unsigned bands ever see. Some of their shows included The Doobie Brothers, Poison, Bret Michaels, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner, George Thorogood, the late Jeff Healey and many others.
When Gibbs and his twin parted ways musically in 2010, he began traveling extensively as a solo artist. In 2012, Gibbs formed the band Cheap Thrill, which featured two members of multi-platinum band Cinderella. Cheap Thrill toured nationally and internationally and still performs presently. Gibbs would write and record during his downtime, and his song, “This Town,” was picked up by the John Force Racing Team and was eventually used for ESPN’s NHRA division for three consecutive seasons.
In 2014, Gibbs joined forces with Rikki Rockett (Poison), Tracii Guns (L. A. Guns), and Eric Brittingham (Cinderella) to form Devil City Angels. Their first single, “All My People,” which was actually previously written and recorded by Gibbs and his twin brother, was used in the State Farm segment on the 2014 Monday Night Football Countdown. Devil City Angels was quickly signed by Century Media Records and released their self-titled record in September of 2015. (In 2020, DCA surprised their fans and released a video called “Testify” which Joel Kosche (Collective Soul) co-wrote, produced and performed with Brandon and Rikki and Topher Nolan. In 2015, Gibbs was asked by members of multi-platinum band Poison, Bobby Dahl, Rikki Rockett, and CC DeVille to perform hits from the Poison catalogue. They were called “The Special Guests.”
In 2017, Gibbs also created an incredible guitar driven show called “Planet Axe” featuring Ryan Roxie (Alice Cooper) and Joel Kosche (Collective Soul) This show was extremely well received by fans. From 2016-present, Gibbs and Joel Hoekstra (Whitesnake, Cher, TSO) performed together in an acoustic show called “The Campfire Tour.”
In April of 2019, Gibbs signed his first deal as a solo artist with Golden Robot Records releasing the single “Rain Whiskey” Fall of 2019 and “Leave” in 2020.
