The Pistoleros have been a fixture of the Valley music scene for over 20 years and is probably best known for its role in Tempe's jangle pop scene of the 1990s. Now the band is releasing its first album in 10 years, "Shine."

The Pistoleros are fronted by two brothers, Mark and Lawrence Zubia. While they are very close, both as brothers and collaborators, they were estranged for some time while Lawrence was experiencing some severe substance abuse issues. And even though the pair put out music during that 10-year period, for many fans this new Pistoleros album represents a big transition, both symbolically and stylistically.

The Show invited Mark and Lawrence Zubia into the KJZZ studios to play a Tiny Desert Concert and they began by sharing how one of the members, Mark, defines artistic growth.

The Pistoleros CD release show is Saturday night at Last Exit Live in Phoenix.
