NIKKI SIXX-Approved Rockers CHARM CITY DEVILS Set Release Date For Debut

CHARM CITY DEVILS (formerly known as FORTY ACRES and CHOSEN SON), the Baltimore, Maryland-based rock band fronted by John Allen, is set to release its debut album, "Let's Rock 'n' Roll", on May 26 via Eleven Seven Music, helmed by label president Nikki Sixx (MÖTLEY CRÜE co-founder/bassist).

"When I first heard CHARM CITY DEVILS, my initial thought, along with everyone at Eleven Seven, was this is a real rock band!" said Sixx. "When I listen to their music, I hear elements of credible bands like AEROSMITH and I feel AC/DC. I like the fact that they're from Baltimore and the way they relate the working man's experience. They're not from New York or L.A. You don't hear many bands from Baltimore and these guys carry on tradition with their own relevant and modern sound with classic riffs."

Selected as Sixx's first signing to the label, it's obvious that there's something special about CHARM CITY DEVILS. With their roots firmly planted in the blues, the band combines the best, loudest and most raw elements of hard rock, with a touch of punk spirit thrown into the mix. Recorded primarily in Allen's home studio, "Let's Rock 'n' Roll" retains what he calls "a very high-energy, garage-y type of vibe."

"I'm a control freak," Allen admitted, "and anytime you turn your music, image and everything over to an outside entity, you worry. But I know that Eleven Seven understands who we are and what we do. We're a perfect fit because our genre of music is their forte; they know how to bridge hard rock and the new generation of fans."
