Sick Puppies announce new US tour

Music News | By on Jun 19th, 2009

Australian trio Sick Puppies are gearing up to release Tri-Polar, their second major label album, and follow-up to Dressed Up As Life. Like their freshman release, new album, Tri-Polar will feature producer credits in Rock Mafia’s Antonina Armato and Tim James. Together they’ve created a sound that reflects the past four whirlwind years spent in the rock and roll fast lane, on the grueling tour grind, honing their chops until they were a finely tuned powerhouse ready to let loose with the anger, frustration and triumphs built up from all that road work.

Songs like the storming first single, “You’re Going Down,” which is being used as the theme song for the WWE’s Extreme Rules pay-per-view broadcast, and “Street Fighter War,” which was used as part of the national marketing campaign for the popular video game Street Fighter IV, distill all that energy into high-powered festival anthems. “There was plenty of fuel, a lot of hard times, strain, personal problems and all that jazz,” says Moore of the creative process, “and we just put it all into the record. There’s no way you can prevent it from flooding into the music.”

Sick Puppies’ Tri-Polar hits stores on July 14th.
