New York quintet BRAND NEW SIN have returned with a voracious hard rock assault laden with soaring, captivating melodies and crushing anthems that are sure to get anyone’s blood flowing and fists pumping. This highly anticipated new offering, “Tequila”, will also further establish them as one of rock’s premiere tandems. The album is set for an October 3 release.
Soon after completing a six-week nationwide tour as direct support to Black Label Society last fall, BRAND NEW SIN entered Method of Groove studios in Brooklyn with producer Joey Z (Life of Agony, Stereomud) to begin tracking “Tequila”. They’ve emerged with an album sure to stand the test of time. The disc, mastered by the acclaimed George Marino (Metallica, AC/DC, Guns N’ Roses) at Sterling Sound, also features a guest vocal appearance by Peter Steele (Type O Negative) on the track “Reaper Man” and is the perfect representation of what this group is ultimately capable of creating.
The group also recently recorded a new version of the entrance theme music for Big Show, the 7-foot, 500-pound ECW wrestler. The theme, “Crank It Up,” was first heard on the compilation CD WWE: Wreckless Intent, which debuted at #8 on the Billboard charts.
Joe Altier (vocals) checks in with the following report:
“The album is now complete. We recorded this album live as a band, and we think it perfectly captures our raw energy. Hopefully, everyone finds the new tunes as ‘intoxicating’ as we do. We feel that a lot of bands nowadays make things sound too polished, and we have been told for years that our albums are good but our live shows are much better, so that’s what we went for. Stay tuned to our website www.brandnewsin.org and our MySpace page www.myspace.com/brandnewsin for all news and tour dates. See ya soon.”
BRAND NEW SIN’s “Tequila” will prove authentic, meat-and-potatoes classic hard rock is chased with an undeniable raw fury that refuses to be denied.
