MOTOGRUV: Debut EP Out Now

San Francisco Bay Area hard rock/metal outfit MOTOGRUV has just released its debut EP, "The Sin Remains the Same". The CD consists of six original tunes and was recorded at Krawl Studios in Santa Rosa, California with engineer Ben Schallart. Lead singer Dylan D. Waltz states, "We're very proud to finally have a release that captures multiple sides of the MOTOGRUV sound. The disc has all the elements of a bona-fide hard rock record combining a hard-hitting groove, catchy lyrics, and shredding guitars."

MOTOGRUV formed in 2007, with the current lineup being solidified in 2008 with the addition of guitarist Dustin Smart.

The five-piece has created a buzz throughout the West Coast with its energetic live shows and unique sound, drawing from many influences ranging from southern rock to doom metal. MOTOGRUV has introduced its band of hard-hitting rock on stages in support of headlining acts such as MUDVAYNE, DROWNING POOL, SALIVA, TRAPT, 10 YEARS, SMILE EMPTY SOUL, and SNOT.
