Sick Puppies Connect out TODAY!

| 17 July 2013 | Reply


July 16, 2013 – New York, NY – Capitol Records / Drilldown recording artists Sick Puppies, whose brand-new album, Connect, is filled with “Solid radio-ready  hits” and “top notch writing and musicianship” as praised by, have a busy July 16 as the trio kick off their tour (The Connect Tour ), with in-store appearances and celebrating the release of their ambitious third album, Connect, all on the same day.

The CD’s first single, “There’s No Going Back,” is already Top 10  on the rock charts, while the tune’s  visually arresting video, directed by P.R Brown (Jack White, Marilyn Manson, John Mayer), has logged nearly a half-million views on and is all over MTV, MTV2, MTVU, Fuse, Teen Nick, Music Choice and Palladia. The soaring and memorable mid-tempo ballad is described by bassist/backing vocalist Emma Anzai as “slightly nostalgic and a little melancholy, but it’s also uplifting. It’s a cool contrast.” (The “There’s No Going Back” video can be seen here:

The 12-song effort, produced by Rock Mafia, is the anticipated and fully-realized follow up to the band’s 2009 sophomore smash LP, Tri-Polar. That record sold nearly a half-million units and two million single downloads and contains the #1 Rock track “You’re Going Down,” the Top Ten Modern Rock/Active Rock hit “Odd One” and the cross-format anthemic smash, “Maybe.”

Co-founded by singer/guitarist 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, as the Vegas Freemont noted, “not only are Sick Puppies incredibly talented on their albums, they have an insanely awesome live show and the best fans out there.”

Those fans can get up close and personal starting July 16 as the Sick Puppies play full-electric sets on tour and also appear at selected in-store events where they’ll perform acoustically and sign copies of Connect. The band even enlisted their audience’s help in making Connect, asking for feedback as they worked on the music. “We literally talk to our fans face to face–we know a lot them,” remarks Moore.  “We wish back in the day our favorite band would have asked us that!”
