iTunes Review

On Aviation, Semi-Precious Weapons give glam-rock a 21st-century makeover with the help of in-demand producer Christopher “Tricky” Stewart (of Beyoncé and Rihanna fame). At first blush, it might seem like a dicey proposition for lead singer Justin Tranter and company to step out of their ‘70s-era comfort zone and embrace the sonic trappings of today. But if anything, Semi-Precious Weapons’ brazen, glitter-dipped sound and cheerfully nasty attitude have been cranked up a notch this time out. The grooves slink and swagger with abandon as guitarist Stevy Pyne splashes leering riffs across walls of throbbing synths. Tranter exudes a cheeky, slightly demented charisma as he preens his way through “Look to the Stars,” “Drink,” and “Cherries on Ice.” When the band venture into more contemporary dance-pop territory (as on “Aviation High” and “Young Love”), they manage to keep their trashy spirit intact. Lyrically, dashes of venom add extra bite to tracks like the hard-pumping “Free Booze” and the shimmering “Vegas.” The party anthem “That’s My Friend” is unexpectedly sincere in tone.

New Fan

I saw these guys with P!ATD last night and fell in love with them from my first listen. Definitely a new favorite band.


The wait has been long, but it has definitely been worth it. The new music is sensational! I love the four new songs and have pre-ordered the entire album. Big congratulations for outstanding work!


These songs are just beautiful! Justin's multi faceted vocal ability weaving words like pearls, his poetry and voice are just extraordinary! Stevy, Dan, and Cole, each virtuosic in their respective fields, bravo gentlemen. This album is a masterpiece of musicianship, produced with power and grace, thank you.

Semi Precious Weapons is the creation of Chicago-born gay/ambisexual singer/songwriter Justin Tranter, a charismatic frontperson with a long history of outrageous performances. Tranter fell under the spell of Ariel in Disney's The Little Mermaid when he was a boy, and after seeing Courtney Love and Hole perform, his course was firmly set. He wanted to be a rock star. Realizing he wanted to write songs as well as sing them, he begged his parents to get him a piano and taught himself to play. He went...
