Minneapolis blastmerchants AMBASSADOR GUN checked in from amidst their ongoing tour this week, while doing some bodywork on their van outside of a Wal-Mart. It turns out that their allies in BLUE OX had to bail from the tour at the last minute as one of the members nearly disengaged his entire leg in a brutal chainsaw accident! But automotive setbacks and chainsaw’d tourmates aside, AMBASSADOR GUN will forge on for the remaining seven dates of the trek, with a vicious showdown in Reno confirmed for tomorrow evening. A comment from the band:
“Fuckin way of the road, one cluster fuck after another. At least the shows have been good!”
Check out AMBASSADOR GUN in full-on tour effect via their new self-filmed video for “Wounded Knee,” the opening track from their new album Golden Eagle.

Their first full-length since their 2009-released When In Hell album, Golden Eagleshows AMBASSADOR GUN as always bridging all gaps subdividing extreme punk/metal genres into a crushing, crusty punk-as-fuck grind-infused amalgamation of revulsion. Here the trio cranks out 11 new songs 30 minutes, the album prevailing as a new DIY standard for the band, fully produced, recorded, and released by the members themselves. Golden Eagle is out now on cassette and digital download via the band’s self-operated label Pangea Media now, available here.
