Pre-save Land of the Lost

Bandleader Giovannie Yanez on the new single: "We set out writing 'Chiquita' as this sexy song, and it turned out just how we wanted it to. It was really fun to make - all the guys in the band jammed out really hard, and it was awesome. This song is about showing your haters that you're going to make it, one way or another."

Produced by Johnny K (Megadeth, Disturbed, Sevendust, Plain White T’s)Land of the Lost is Giovannie and The Hired Guns’ fourth full-length and second LP since signing with Warner Music Nashville through a first-of-its-kind partnership with Warner Music Latina. Continuing their colossal rise, the band returns with an album that pushes the boundaries with even more intensity, pairing explosive riffs and unforgettable hooks with their most brutally honest songwriting to date. Land of the Lost channels painful self-reflection into songs with all the raw exuberance of a fist-pumping party anthem, supplying the kind of catharsis that can only come from exorcising your demons and bravely moving toward a better future.

“It’s that unflinching honesty and the willingness to write and sing about personal failings — from addiction to bad romances — that have helped make Giovannie and the Hired Guns one of the year’s most surprising, genre-crossing buzz bands.”

– Rolling Stone

The follow-up to 2022’s Tejano Punk BoyzLand of the Lost finds Giovannie and The Hired Guns doubling down on the freewheeling attitude they first embraced in their earliest days as a band. “From the beginning I told the guys not to worry about sounding too rock or too country on this record,” Yanez recalls. “We just went in there and had fun and didn’t let anything hold us back, and because of that the album shows the full range of what we can do as a band.”

Since their inception in 2015, Giovannie and The Hired Guns has made a blockbuster career out of wildly defying expectations. Almost entirely by word of mouth, the Texas-based five-piece ascended from can’t-miss regional act to taking the stage at major festivals and arenas across the country, drawing a crowd that ranges from cowboys to metalheads to skate punks. The New Yorker has called them “one of the most entertaining bands on rock radio,” and New Noise Magazine hailed their “invigorating mix of southern rock, country, stoner metal, and Latino hip hop.” Winning the 2023 iHeartRadio Music Award for Best New Artist in Alternative & Rock, the band shattered records when their smash single “Ramon Ayala” climbed to #1 on the Active Rock Radio Chart and the Alternative Radio Chart, marking the first time in over 15 years that an artist’s first career-charting radio single reached the top spot on both tallies. 

Looking back on the making of Land of the Lost, Yanez says the album helped to clarify his overall mission and vision for the band. “This record made me want to keep putting out songs that are fun and serious at the same time,” he says. “I want to show everyone that it’s okay to feel sad and out of place, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a good time—it’s all a part of being human.”
