Sick Puppies ‘CONNECT’ out July 16; pre-order on iTunes today


May 20, 2013 – Third time’s the charm for Capitol Records/Drilldown Entertainment Australian rock trio Sick Puppies, whose brand-new album is available now for pre-order on the iTunes store ( Connect finds the band upping the ante for a release that incorporates the band’s beloved aggro-alt rock attack with new sounds and influences for a sound that will thrill old fans and create instant converts! Connect is preceded by “There’s No Going Back,” and will impact Modern/Active Rock on June 3rd.

In keeping within the theme of Connect the band revealed exclusively to their facebook fans the cover art for Connect and single teaser last week As their fans eagerly await the July 16 release date, the band will tide them over by issuing two pieces of elite content over the next week. First up, a video trailer for “There’s No Going Back” May 23rd,  followed by a behind the scenes look on May 30th, leading into the official video premiere June 6th all happening across VEVO, the world’s leading all-premium music video and entertainment experience.

The 12-song effort is the anticipated and full-realized  follow up to the lineup’s sophomore smash LP, Tri-Polar, which has sold nearly a half-million units and contains the #1 Rock track “You’re Going Down,” the Top Ten Modern Rock/Active Rock hits “Odd One” & “Riptide” and the cross-format anthemic smash “Maybe.”

Connect, with its melding of room-filling rockers and edgy yet poignant rock/pop, is poised to be the band’s best-selling record yet, as singer/guitarist/co-founder Moore explains:  “We’ve always had the colors to work with, but we really got to use some broad strokes inPolar Opposite, our 2011 acoustic record. It was always a dream of mine to work with strings and a choir, and our producer made it kinda trippy and unusual on Polar Opposite. So I was looking forward to taking some of the elements of that, and furthering some melodies and sentiments of [2007’s US debut] Dressed Up As Life, and some heaviness from Tri-Polar. It’s an amalgamation of all into one, which is why I think it’s our best work to date.”

Co-founded by Shim Moore and bassist Emma Anzai while in high school in Australia, Sick Puppies moved to Los Angeles, and soon made the road their home, touring ceaselessly, earning tons of rabid fans and rave reviews at every stop. This summer, Sick Puppies start their tour before ‘Connect’ is even out, kicking off May 14 with headline dates to follow. Dates and Connect track listing below.
