SIN DEALER, the band featuring members of SEA OF GREEN, SONS OF OTIS, EDWIN and PLASMA BLAST, has finished recording tracks for its follow-up to 2004's "13" at Escarpment Sound this past weekend and will start mixing the CD the first week of February. The as-yet-untitled effort was engineered by Andrew St. George (THE WHO, KILLER DWARFS, IAN ASTBURY) and Gary Honess (I MOTHER EARTH, BURNING THE DAY, JEFF MARTIN).
Commented guitarist Ron Bechard: "It was great working with both Andrew and Gary. We had the best of two worlds, an old school rock 'n' roll approach by way of Andrew and a more modern approach through Gary. The sounds we got were HUGE!" Frontman Eric Kuthe adds, "We recorded in a converted 110 year old farm house in the middle of nowhere. We all lived out there together and ate, slept, lived and breathed the SIN DEALER vibe. The first day we were there, it was foggy and grey. You couldn't help looking out of the windows and across the misty fields and feeling like we were in Birmingham or some place like that recording the way BLACK SABBATH might have a couple decades ago. It definitely added to the feel of the CD".
SIN DEALER recorded 10 new songs in total over the session and advance song titles include "Gasoline", "Going Down Again", "Betrayal", "Got Into You", "Devils War", "One Foot In The Grave", "Lying To Myself", "Magic Woman", "Born To Die" and a cover of AC/DC's "Walk All Over You". The band will be putting a couple of the board mixes up on its MySpace page in a few days. A spring release is expected.
