BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION have inked a deal with Shrapnel Records for the release of their sophomore album, "Runaway Brides". The follow-up to last year's "Here Come the Brides" was recorded in part at a studio in Malibu, California with producer Andy Johns, who has previously worked with guitarist Tracii Guns on the L.A. GUNS' "Waking the Dead" album (which Guns has referred to as "my favorite L.A. GUNS record."). Johns was reportedly involved with the album during its early recording stages but ended up leaving the project due to unspecified differences with Guns and the rest of the band.

"Runaway Brides" is scheduled for release on September 27. The album's first single, "White Trash", "pays homage to all the trailer-park-style culture and the people that try to leave them," according to a press release.

Commented Guns: "This is the record we always wanted to make. It has a great blend of modern rock heaviness with retro sounds and styles. It is the perfect BRIDES record of today."

"Runaway Brides" tentative track listing:

01. White Trash
02. Deadman's Ruin
03. Blown Away
04. Brothers
05. Porcelain Queen
06. Never Say Never
07. White Horse
08. Lords of the Mind
09. Next Time Around
10. Criminal
11. Dimes from Heaven

Said Guns: "We cut 'So Long' and 'Tunnel of Love' from the record. 'Tunnel of Love' will be the Japanese bonus track and 'So Long' will be coming out later on something else we have planned for the distant future."

BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION's current lineup includes former AMEN bassist Scott Sorry (replacing MÖTLEY CRÜE's Nikki Sixx).
