Raygun Cowboys are a psychobilly punk rock n roll band hailing from the very best dive bars and pool rooms of Edmonton. These 50’s influenced hooligans play insanely high-energy badass rockabilly with elements of punk and rock n roll that instantly gets people on the dance floor from the first to last song.
Formed in 2000, the boys started playing local shows and quickly became the band of choice to support touring acts in western Canada. In 2005 the Cowboys released their first recordings on the Zombie Night in Canada 2 compilation and released their debut Underworld Boogie in 2006.
The band hit the road shortly after and toured coast to coast several times bringing their suped-up psycho juke joint jive to a legion of fans across the country. In 2007 they added a killer horn section to their traditional 3 piece rockabilly line up. Two full-length albums followed along with constant touring in every corner of the country including appearances at some of the best festivals in Canada like North Country Fair, Folk on the Rocks, Beaumont Blues Fest, Hotrod Hootenanny and the Salmon Arm Blues and Roots festival. In 2010-11 the Rayguns toured Europe in and backed up rockabilly legend Wanda Jackson at the Edmonton folk festival and began recording their third full-length album in the fall.
Now the Raygun Cowboys are back with a brand new bag. Chocked full of terrifying tales of ghoulish debauchery, Heads Are Gonna Roll clocks in at 11 breakneck tracks that are sure to get all the boppers boppin' and the hepcats swinging.
For fans of: The Creepshow, Tiger Army, Nekromantix, Mad Sin, The Brains, Rocket from The Crypt

Surely there isn’t another band in Canada with a sound quite like the Raygun Cowboys. From one track to another, leisurely-paced rockabilly becomes lightning-speed psychobilly—with a dash of brass thrown into the mix for good measure….is album proves without a doubt that the Raygun Cowboys are a force to be reckoned with.

This band really is unique with all the different styles that they play, keeping you guessing as to where they are going to go from track to track. Everything is played with conviction and love and just jumps out from the speakers and grabs you.
