Los Angeles outfit L.A. Guns have offered new details on their forthcoming album, Checkered Past, sharing a brand-new single, Knock Me Down.
A mid-tempo hard-rocker driven throughout by crunchy electric guitars – and with a classic rock-style solo at the 2:49 mark courtesy of lead guitarist and Guns N' Roses founding member Tracii Guns – Knock Me Down is, as the band explain, a mere snapshot of the album as a whole.
Arriving November 12 via Frontiers Music Srl, the LP is divided up into “sets” or “suites," where a musical style is explored across several songs before moving onto the next. Check out Knock Me Down below.
The forthcoming album is L.A. Guns' third since the 2016 reunion of the band's core members Tracii Guns and frontman Phil Lewis. It follows 2017's The Missing Peace and 2019's The Devil You Know.
Knock Me Down is the second single from the LP, following the moody, down-tempo Let You Down, which was released last year. Check out the album's tracklisting below.

Back in April, Tracii Guns and Phil Lewis reached a legal settlement with Steve Riley – who fronts another version of L.A. Guns – over the rights to the name. Under the agreement, Guns and Lewis will continue using the L.A. Guns moniker, while Riley's band will now perform under the name Riley's L.A. Guns.
