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”, features an abundance of stellar guitar work from Kenny Dunham and Kris Wiechmann, who stepped up greatly to further establish themselves as one of rock’s premiere tandems.
The Syracuse-based quintet have greatly evolved over the past few years honing their musicianship to become one of the most acclaimed pure American rock acts around today. After a well-received self-titled debut offering in ‘02 the group stormed back with the stunning “Recipe For Disaster” album in 2005, which immediately received critical praise from Germanys Rock Hard magazine: “Yet a Hard Rock highlight of the year!” and Metal Hammer (G): “Beer lover music! Fat, dirty, earthy, delicious.” Guitar One (US) and Guitar World (US) both hailed them as a band to keep an eye on.
The group proceeded to tour relentlessly with such genre titans as Black Label Society, C.O.C. and Motörhead, further solidifying their diehard fan base as Fuse and MTV2 embraced the epic track “Black and Blue.” They also recently recorded a new version of the entrance theme music for Big Show, the 7-foot, 500-pound ECW (Extreme Championship Wrestling) wrestler. The theme, "Crank It Up," was first heard on the compilation CD WWE: Wreckless Intent, which debuted at #8 on the Billboard charts.
BRAND NEW SIN entered Method of Groove studios in Brooklyn with producer Joey Z (Life of Agony, Stereomud) in April of 2006 to begin tracking “Tequila” and emerged with an album that is 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 “Reaper Man” and is the perfect representation of what this group is ultimately capable of creating.
BRAND NEW SIN is the definition of authentic, meat-and-potatoes classic hard rock mixed with hints of down home, southern style blues and an undeniable raw fury that refuses to be denied.
