Kevin Agosta, drummer for LYPSWITCH, “It is great to see these recordings released 35 years after the band moved to Hollywood to follow a crazy childhood dream. We are all very happy with this final product that includes remasters and 3 newly recorded songs, 17 tracks all together. The remastering work by Anthony Focx was flawless, and the artwork and overall packaging simply kicks ass! We are extremely proud of “World of Sin” and can’t wait to see the responses from a worldwide audience! Many thanks to our friends at Eonian Records!”

Stephen Craig, Founder of Eonian Records, said, “I have been friends with the guys in LYPSWITCH since we released the four-disc box set ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Rebels & the Sunset Strip’ in April of 2015. Kevin and I remained in touch and when the time came, they were a natural addition to the Eonian family. In the early days, LYPSWITCH categorized their sound as “underground punk-funk street rock.” When the guys arrived in Hollywood via Orlando in April of 1988, the glam scene was morphing to a more street-level sound, so they didn’t have to adapt much to fit in, however, the band’s sound naturally got more down & dirty. If you are a fan of Guns N’ Roses, L.A. Guns, Bang Tango, Love/Hate, and Funhouse, LYPSWITCH is for you! We consider this an essential piece of L.A. Sleaze metal history and a must for collectors.”

About LYSWITCH – Originally from Orlando, Florida moved to Hollywood April of 1988. The band kicked and clawed their way around the Strip scene packing the usual hotspots such as The Whisky (a favorite of theirs), Gazzarris, The Roxy, and The Troubadour, while frequently playing with rival bands such as Taz, Scratch, Liquor Sweet, Blackboard Jungle, Funhouse, as well as Bang Tango and Love/Hate, who, of course, went onto significant label success. Along with that healthy competition, LYSWITCH also had plenty of press from L.A. rags like BAM, Rock City News, and Screamer, as well as even getting coveted airplay on the legendary KNAC Pure Rock 105.5 FM with their first single “Rattlesnake Skin” in late 1989. Along the way, they also took part in the L.A. band traditions of posting flyers, making phone calls to people on their mailing list, and even sending newsletters to people who listed themselves in the pen pal section of Metal Edge Magazine. It was an idea that helped the band spread their name all over the country and even internationally!
