Minneapolis’ Gasoline Silver are a rawk band drawing influences from ‘70s American punk and a bit of British blues rock. Being a traditional power trio, they like to rock hard and this live clip today gives you a great idea of their overall aesthetic. Frontman Ron Franklin has three prior solo albums to his credit and for his latest endeavor, he’s teamed with Andy Hertel on drums and Josh Misner on synthesizers.

Gasoline Silver’s self-titled debut will release 7 September via Victorian Pictures.
