Vinyl LP pressing in gatefold sleeve. 2018 release. Gunship describe themselves as a neon soaked, late night, sonic getaway drive, dripping with luscious analogue synthesizers, cinematic vocals and cyberpunk values, exploding from the front cover of a dusty plastic VHS case which has lain forgotten since 1984. Dark All Day, the bands sophomore album, sees them build on the success of their 2015 eponymous long player, furthering their reputation as pioneers of the synthwave scene and continuing the '80s retro revival theme popularized by films and series such as Drive, Stranger Things, Ready Player One and every arcade game. As with it's predecessor Dark All Day features various artists from the band's world including Wil Wheaton (The Big Bang Theory / Star Trek / Stand By Me), Kat Von D (celebrity model, make-up mogul and tattooist) and the original Lost Boy Tim Cappello who plays sax on the album s title track.
