Miami, FL hard rockers Gears have had a challenging journey since their formation in 2014, which includes lineup changes, financial challenges, and having their equipment trailer disconnect resulting in a horrific accident. Regardless of their setbacks, the group hasn’t given up and they recently unleashed their heavy new single for “Tango Yankee” featuring Sevendust vocalist, Lajon Witherspoon.
Drummer Jimmy Wooten commented:
“With ‘Tango Yankee,’ we just really wanted to write something dedicated to several members of our families that have served in the Military, Law Enforcement, and First Response. We really wanted this to be special, so getting one of our favorite vocalists from one of our favorite bands was very exciting and made this track just that, special. Lajon came in and absolutely crushed the track vocally. I really love the way it turned out. Trip and LJ complimented each other so well. Put that together with Clint’s epic solo and of course, Corey at the helm, this really turned into something spectacular. I believe that the thought behind the song is something that most Americans can relate to as many of us have or have had loved ones serve. Maybe even a little something that can get us past all of our political disagreements, unify, recognize the sacrifice and just say a simple ‘Thank You’ to all those who fight for our freedom, protect us and keep us safe.”
