Four years have
passed since Australia’s Sick Puppies relocated to Los Angeles, and
took the world by storm with their song, “All The Same.” The video
for the track, which was shot in a Sydney shopping mall with their
friend holding up a hand-written placard offering “Free Hugs,” was
seen by over 43 million viewers on YouTube alone, spurring
six-figure sales of their major label debut, Dressed Up As Life.
Now, primed by
almost three straight years of touring, playing before thousands at
festivals and generally living in rock and roll’s fast lane,
vocalist/guitarist Shimon Moore, his high school classmate, bassist
Emma Anzai, and drummer Mark Goodwin, an Orange County native who
answered an ad in Craig’s List to join the band, Sick Puppies are
back with their eagerly awaited follow-up, Tri-Polar.
Produced again by
the hit team of Rock Mafia’s Antonina Armato and Tim James, Tri-Polar
reflects the band’s grueling travels on the road, along with the
frustrations that build up along the way, on songs like the first
single, “You’re Going Down,” which was utilized by the WWE as the
theme song in its 2009 promotional spots.
“That Time Of
Year” is an introspective track that is exclusive to NCIS: The
Official TV Soundtrack – Vol. 2, and will be featured in a
season 7 episode of NCIS.
