BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION, the new band featuring MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx, L.A. GUNS guitarist Tracii Guns, vocalist London LeGrand, and drummer Scot Coogan (ex-PAUL GILBERT, ONI LOGAN/ROWAN ROBERTSON, SINÉAD O'CONNOR), have set a March 9, 2004 release date through Sanctuary Records for their debut album, "Here Come The Brides".
The CD, which features contributions from previous members John Corabi (ex-MÖTLEY CRÜE, UNION) and Kris Kohls (ADEMA), contains album-quality demos recorded during the pre-production sessions for what was supposed to be the group's "proper" full-length debut. All songs were produced by Stevo Bruno at Klown Records in Santa Monica, California and were mixed by producer Steve Thompson (KORN, METALLICA, GUNS N' ROSES). "Shut the Fuck Up" has been used in a skateboard video shot by Drew Stone of Stone Films.
The complete track listing for "Here Come The Brides" is as follows:
01. Shut The Fuck Up
02. I Don't Care
03. Two Times Dead
04. Brace Yourself
05. I Got A Gun
07. Natural Born Killers
09. Only Get So Far
Sixx was the founding member and primary songwriting force behind MÖTLEY CRÜE, the most successful hard rock band of the 1980s. After bursting out of and then dominating the Los Angeles hard rock and heavy metal scene that exploded more than 20 years ago, Sixx and MÖTLEY CRÜE have sold more than 40 million copies of landmark albums such as "Shout at the Devil", "Theatre of Pain", "Girls, Girls, Girls" and "Dr. Feelgood". Their wild, decadent, rock-star lifestyle became legendary — shaming all previous, supposed masters of excess.
Guns shot to fame with his band L.A. GUNS. The band's 11 albums have sold more than 6 million copies worldwide. Their biggest hit single was "The Ballad of Jayne". Guns was a founding member of GUNS N' ROSES but left and was replaced by childhood friend Slash. He has worked with the likes of MOTÖRHEAD, Johnny Thunders and the MISFITS, and he co-founded the supergroup CONTRABAND with UFO guitarist Michael Schenker. Guns' skills and diversity has led to a great deal of work as a session guitarist in L.A.
Coogan, after hitting some dead ends, got his big break when he landed the gig as the touring drummer for the boy band ALL 4 ONE. He also became an in-demand session player and touring drummer for other artists. Coogan has played with Pete Yorn, Sinead O'Connor and OTEP to name a few. Guns saw him play and after an electrifying studio jam, he was hired on the spot.
LeGrand is a total unknown, but he is obviously something special to hold his own with Sixx, Guns and Coogan. His restless, vagabond background and frustrating music experiences in Georgia ultimately led to a move to L.A. where he met Sixx and Guns. He won't be anonymous for much longer as the frontman for BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION, which Sixx calls a "band of underdogs."
