Swedish female-fronted heavy rock band SISTER SIN has recruited Andreas Strandh (pictured below) as its new bass player.
SISTER SIN's latest video, "Sound Of The Underground", can be viewed below. The clip was directed by Richard Frantzén.
"Sound Of The Underground" comes off SISTER SIN's second album, "True Sound Of The Underground", which sold around 500 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 97 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
"True Sound Of The Underground" was released in North America on June 22 via Victory Records and was issued in Europe on July 23 through Metal Heaven Records. It was produced by Henrik Edenhed (DEAD BY APRIL, ROBYN, LAMBRETTA, TEDDYBEARS, CHRISTIAN WALTZ, THE SOUNDS) in Stockholm at Studio 301 and Cosmos Studios.
In a recent interview with Sleaze Roxx, SISTER SIN vocalist Liv Jagrell stated about the group's current sound, "We are a heavy metal band. On past records we have been more of a rock band, but on the new album I think we definitely got a lot heavier. You can hear a lot of MÖTLEY CRÜE on our last two albums, but on this one we went heavier. To me this is the sound that SISTER SIN had been searching for on previous recordings but we didn't achieve until 'True Sound Of The Underground' . . . Now we're going for more of a JUDAS PRIEST, MOTÖRHEAD and ACCEPT kind of sound. I think we are aiming for a more '80s traditional heavy metal sound."
