Sick Puppies new album Connect is scheduled for July 16 through Capitol Records/Drilldown Entertainment. First single “There’s No Going Back,” arrives at Modern/Active Rock on June 3.
Last week, the Australian rock trio revealed the cover art for Connect and single teaser exclusively to their Facebook fans http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3YR9VT3gec.
Next up is a a video trailer for “There’s No Going Back” on May 23, followed by a behind the scenes look on May 30, leading into the official video premiere June 6 - all happening across VEVO.
Connect follows sophomore CD, Tri-Polar, which has sold nearly a half-million units and contains the #1 Rock radio track "You're Going Down,” the Top 10 Modern Rock/Active Rock hits "Odd One” & “Riptide” and the cross-format song "Maybe."
Singer/guitarist/co-founder Shim Moore says: “We’ve always had the colors to work with, but we really got to use some broad strokes in Polar 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.”
