Giovannie and The Hired Guns have signed with Warner Music Nashville and will release their anticipated album, Tejano Punk Boyz, on Oct. 28.
In the last year, the Texas band has been named one of Amazon Music’s 2022 Artists to Watch, and their breakout single, “Ramon Ayala,” has garnered 18 million digital streams since independently releasing last summer. Following its No. 1 on the Active Rock Radio Chart, the track claimed the No. 1 slot on the Alternative Radio Chart this week, and has notched five weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Rock & Alternative Airplay Chart. This is the first time since 2006 that an artist’s first career-charting radio single reached No. 1 at both Alternative and Active Rock.
Fronted by Mexican-American lead singer and guitarist Giovannie Yanez, the group also includes Carlos Villa (guitar), Jerrod Flusche (guitar), Alex Trejo (bass guitar) and Milton Toles (drums).
“This year has felt like a dream that never ends. The No. 1s are so cool because we are reaching so many new fans. We can’t wait to share the full album soon,” says Yanez.
Griff Morris of Crush South Management adds: “This band is on a mission to take over the world. They have the talent, work ethic and vision to do exactly that. Bet on it.”
“This partnership is a perfect example of Warner Music Nashville’s philosophy to let the music lead. Giovannie and The Hired Guns are pure adrenaline and one of a kind,” notes Co-President of Warner Music Nashville, Cris Lacy. “Their broad musical reach has inspired an exciting ’first’ for us, a collaboration with one of our US rock sister labels and Warner Music Latina to make sure Gio’s ascension to superstardom is multilateral.”
