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.
