Listen up, Glam fans: I have a new favorite band: Rockets to Ruin from Atlanta, Georgia. Their album Love, Drugs, Rebellion owns you. People, this is down n' dirty sleaze rock at its finest.
Rockets to Ruin are:
Cleveland Willis – Vocals
Mike Grimmett – Guitar
Chris Taylor – Bass
Rob Hammersmith - Drums
Now, the great part about Love, Drugs, Rebellion is that it is raw. Rachel Bolan of Skid Row produced the disc, so you know it has Glam cred. Plus, I love how the bass has a unique tone on most of the tracks. I don't exactly know how to explain the tone except that it is sharp - but far from hollow.
Here's the track listing:
We Are The Drugs
Take A Ride With Me (Straight To Hell)
Screamin' At Me
1 More Fix
Gotta Go, Gotta Roll
Nowhere To Go (No Time To Care)
Now, my favorite tracks are "We Are the Drugs," " Take A Ride With Me (Straight To Hell)" and "Gotta Go, Gotta Roll."
Rockets to Ruin remind me of Buckcherry - except I like them a lot better. This doesn't mean I'm turning my back on my promise to support all things Buckcherry - just that I think Rockets to Ruin deserve some damn respect.
Get these Southern boys to Rocklahoma - and shove them on the main stage. Watch them blow the competition out of the water!
Speaking of stages, Rockets to Ruin has a few live gigs coming up with bands like Hookers and Blow and Jetboy. Visit here for more info. The cool news is that Love, Drugs, Rebellion is on iTunes - easy as pie.
Listen to this video clip, then download. Ladies, did I mention these boys have looks and talent?
