Saints Of The Underground, created by members of mega-groups Ratt, Warrant, and Alice Cooper, are launching their debut CD entitled, Love The Sin, Hate The Sinner.
Formed by Bobby Blotzer (Ratt's drummer) and Keri Kelli (guitarist for Alice Cooper), they quickly recruited Jani Lane (Warrant vocalist) and Robbie Crane (Ratt's bassist) to fill out their roster. Separately these accomplished musicians have achieved multi-platinum successes, but together they have pooled their talents into an exciting new sound that fuses killer hooks, big guitars, and rock-n-roll attitude.
The formation of Saints Of The Underground happened quite unexpectedly, as the four musicians started out just playing cover tunes together for fun during off times from their respective super groups. They so enjoyed performing that a collective chemistry developed and the band naturally evolved into creative partnership through which original songs began to emerge.
S.O.T.U. decided to capture an array of material, the result of which is their debut CD, Love The Sin, Hate The Sinner, written and produced by Bobby, Keri, and Jani Lane. "We had the opportunity to mix our record with Andy Johns of (The Rolling) Stones and (Led) Zeppelin fame," commented Lane. "He was an English prince and we had a blast working together. This is best stuff I've been involved with in a long, long time."
The new CD has already been generating buzz from the industry featuring enough heavy grooves, hooks, and memorable melodies to satisfy even the most demanding rock-n-roll aficionados. Tracks like "All In How You Wear It," "Exit," "Signs Of Life," and a mesmerizing version of the Rolling Stones classic, "Moolight Mile," have this debut rocking along to a distinctive rock beat that is sure to please fans, both old and new.
