Known for their compelling blend of rock and a string of hits that have charted across Europe, Scottish riff merchants GUN have consistently been a force in the music industry, boasting 3 UK top 20 albums, 8 UK top 40 singles, and extensive tours, including memorable performances with The Rolling Stones.

As their widely praised new album Hombres hits stores today, GUN have shared a brand new live video, for uplifting track “You Are What I Need.”

Vocalist Dante Gizzi explains, “’You Are What I Need’ is a song about the comfort we get in those who stand by us. They’re the pillars of support, the listening ears, and the steady hands that guide us through life’s storms. Whether it’s family, friends, or mentors, their unwavering presence reminds us that we’re not alone. They offer empathy, encouragement, and sometimes tough love, showing us that strength lies in vulnerability and that together, we can weather any challenge.”
