Militarie Gun Share Cover of John Lennon’s ‘Gimme Some Truth’

    Militarie Gun have returned with a cover of John Lennon’s 1971 song ‘Gimme Some Truth’. It marks the band’s first new material since their 2021 EPs All Roads Lead to the Gun and All Roads Lead to the Gun II as well as the Dazy collaboration ‘Pressure Cooker’. Give it a listen below.

    ‘Gimme Some Truth’ is taken from Image Comic’s What’s The Furthest Place From Here Deluxe Issue 6, which includes a split 7” featuring Militarie Gun’s John Lennon rendition and Gulch covering the Pixies. “I’ve always felt a connection to this particular song but I had never really intellectualized it,” vocalist Ian Shelton commented in a statement. “Once I started sending this cover to friends, people were pointing out that the things he’s singing about are the same stuff that I’m always talking about. My main gripe in life is typically contradiction and hypocrisy— whether it be from politicians or peers—I hate seeing someone’s mouth running but their actions doing the opposite.”
