Greek guitar virtuoso Gus G., has signed a worldwide deal with AFM Records for his solo band! 
 
"I'm very excited and happy to confirm that I've signed a worldwide solo record deal with one of Europe's premier record labels, AFM Records!" Gus said in a statement. "In my opinion, AFMis one of the few labels today that care for artist development, their team is really passionate about what they do and they have fresh and exciting ideas. We briefly worked together on FIREWIND's 'Immortals' album for the North American territory and now I'm looking forward to the full-scale collaboration on my next solo album."
 
AFM Records A&R executive Timo Hoffmann says: "After releasing FIREWIND's latest studio album, 'Immortals', in North America last year, we are beyond excited that Gus decided to make AFM the new label home for his solo career as well. No words needed to praise the man's qualities — Gus was a household name and highly acclaimed musician/songwriter long before he joined Ozzy's band. Ever since its inception, he is the driving force behind FIREWINDand in addition has established a solo career, delivering outstanding up-to-date hard rock with finesse. Fans can look forward to a fantastic new Gus G. album which will see the light of day in April 2018."

GUS G. joins forces with VINNIE MOORE for Gunslingers US Tour!

Guitar wizards Vinnie Moore (UFO) and Gus G. (FIREWIND, x-OZZY OSBOURNE) will hit the road for some shows together in November and December. This will mark the first time these two powerhouse players have toured together. The show will feature music from both guitarists' impressive catalogs.
 
Says Vinnie: "Gus and I met years back in Greece. I brought him up onstage to jam a couple tunes with me and we had a great energy together and had a blast. I knew that night that I would like to do some shows with him at some point. He's a very talented guitarist. Am really looking forward to some Gunslingin' with Gus."
 
Gus comments: "Touring with Vinnie Moore is yet another dream come true for me. His album 'Mind's Eye' has had a huge impact on me as I consider it somewhat as a shred guitar 'bible.' I spent countless hours learning his licks as a teenager. We met and got to jam few years ago and have become good buddies since. I'm looking forward to returning to the U.S. and playing guitar for you and sharing the stage with Vinnie! See you soon!"
