Vocalist JOE LESTE Says BEAUTIFUL CREATURES Is 'A Gang'

BEAUTIFUL CREATURES will release their sophomore album, "Deuce", on August 23, via Spitfire Records, an imprint of Eagle Rock Entertainment. The first single from "Deuce" will be "Anyone".

The group, who were recently joined by former FLOTSAM AND JETSAM axeman Mark Simpson on second guitar, are excited about the return of the band.

"It took a long time to complete 'Deuce' because we didn't want to have any throwaway songs on it," said vocalist Joe LeSte. "It's a very well-rounded album and we're very happy with it. We're all focused and have a very positive attitude.

"We're all about perseverance," he continued. "You have to remember that when our first album came out, there was no THE DARKNESS or VELVET REVOLVER, and we endured being a 'rock band.' Yet we played with KISS, then we played on Ozzfest and got a great reception and then toured for another year."

The rabid, overwhelmingly positive reaction BEAUTIFUL CREATURES received from their early fans even exceeded what the veteran members had experienced in their previous bands. LeSte was the lead vocalist with BANG TANGO and Simpson (a new addition to the band, along with drummer Timmy Russell) was the lead guitarist with FLOTSAM AND JETSAM, but BEAUTIFUL CREATURES sound nothing like them.

BEAUTIFUL CREATURES will be performing at various radio shows to promote "Deuce", including a August 27 appearance at the Motorycycle Mayhem in Fresno with LIT.

"BEAUTIFUL CREATURES is a gang," LeSte said. "We're a team. We put our heart and soul into everything."

BEAUTIFUL CREATURES' self-titled debut was released in 2001 via Warner Bros.
