Pearl Handled Revolver formed out of a shared love of all things gritty, psychedelic and cinematic and a desire to create music uninhibited by considerations of genre, taste or decency. Between 2010 and 2016, they have released 4 EPs and 4 full length albums.

Following the departure of their bassist, they resolved to continue as a quartet, taking their exuberant live show to audiences across the length and breadth of the country and onto the continent. This changed musical dynamic inspired another evolution in the Pearl Handled Revolver sound.
From the outset the band have been passionate about following their musical instincts rather than adhering to a particular style. Their unique take on the heavier side of life is borne of this adventurous spirit which has, in turn, enabled them to absorb a myriad of influences drawn from the darkest corners of the blues to the outer edges of psychedelic expression, from primal rock n roll to cerebral film score.
