Bio

Sin City have arrived. With their debut album 'Hungry For Love', Sin City laid a foundation that saw them hailed as 'the new blood we need' (The Age) and 'one of the most exciting bands in years' (Faster & Louder). 12 tracks of blistering rock, the album was recorded at Sing Sing studios with ARIA winning producer Tony Cohen and released on boutique Melbourne label High Voltage Records. Having previously released the succesful EP 'Sweet Lies' and the singles 'Rest In Pieces, 'Love Bite' and 'Summer Love Song', the band sold 5000 units in pure DIY spirit. Now with 1000 copies sold of their debut album, Sin City are out of contract and those foundations are an un-stoppable juggernaut in the form of their new self titled EP. Sin City have been hand picked to support such luminaries as The Misfits, UK Subs, Guitar Wolf, DOA, Cosmic Psychos and Anti Nowhere League. They have also shared the stage with Jet, Sham 69, The Queers, Strung Out, Gyroscope and many more as well as playing numerous festivals including the Big Day Out. From raucous beginnings on the streets of Perth as WA legends 'Local Pricks', Sin City are now a fully fledged touring machine. Since relocating to Melbourne in April, 2004 the band have amassed a mammoth 500 shows and toured the country non-stop. This commitment to their music drips from the new recording like the sweat from their dynamite live shows. An unrellenting onslaught of passionate vocals, raw energy and hook laden songs, the only thing more intense than Sin City's music is their drive and now it's all been captured on disc. So don't just sit there...get it on your stereo and live it up in...SIN CITY.

If Jmitch doesn't like slow songs he should check out this one. Brutal but also really catchy. Still can't get over this chick's voice. It's as full on as the song!
