SHOTGUN MISTRESS - Save Me From Myself

Save Me From Myself is the blistering new single from Melbourne’s own Shotgun Mistress. The powerful new release follows their debut No Friend Of Mine, which attracted huge attention not only in the Australian hard rock scene but on radio and streaming playlists.


Save Me From Myself captures all the raw uncompromising energy of the band’s live shows and merges it into an intense contemporary hard rock sonic spectacle, replete with hypersonic riffs, hooks and pounding grooves.


Formed in 2018, Shotgun Mistress’s latest is an exuberant taste of their forthcoming album due for release late in 2020. Save Me From Myself might be a fiery, all guns blazing aural assault but it’s reflective; it has a heart aching for self-control and a soul yearning for redemption. Visceral and passionate, Save Me From Myself digs deep to discover a universal resonance at its core.


Kicking off with a rapid-fire riff, which not only displays the band’s expertise, a line-up that features Matt Wilcock, who appears on the list of the 100 greatest metal guitarists of all time, but the group’s determination and pure rock aesthetic vision. Alongside these blazing riffs are the melodic elements of the track, with Glenn Patrick’s dynamic and compelling vocals a stand-out.


What lies behind this gargantuan sound is not only the speed, the energy, the bold and impressive performances but another aspect; an ability to absorb the fall-out from self-reflection and communicate them in a lyrical, direct and persuasive way.



'It’s a rock record with heart, pulsing with an assertive grip on its influences'.

Shotgun Mistress is a multifaceted rock band, utilising the tropes of the genre but bending it to suit their creative needs. On this particular track, those needs are about redemption. With such lines as ‘Save this heart of mine, change this state of mind’, this combination elicits startling results; it’s a rock record with heart, pulsing with an assertive grip on its influences, its history but with a fresh and affecting interpretive approach. Save Me From Myself will no doubt add to the band’s expanding audience at both a national and global level.
