SISTER SIN: Second U.S. Tour Video Blog Posted Online

Swedish female-fronted heavy rock band SISTER SIN recently kicked off a U.S. tour as the support act for OTEP and ILL NINO. The group's second tour video blog can be viewed below.

"Switchblade Serenades", the debut album from SISTER SIN, sold around 700 copies in the Unites States in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The CD debuted at No. 107 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

SISTER SIN will support ARCH ENEMY on a handful of dates in Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands in December.

The first SISTER SIN video, "On Parole", can be viewed below. The clip was filmed in late July in Stockholm with director Bill Schacht, who has previously worked with AMON AMARTH, DIO, ALICE COOPER and KING DIAMOND. The track is the first single off "Switchblade Serenades", which was released in North America through Victory Records.

Having grown apathetic towards the popular trends in heavy Swedish music, SISTER SIN arose from the gutters of Gothenburg in 2002. Settling on their moniker because it represented their "bound to absolutely nothing" lifestyles, the furious foursome entered the local scene as a hard-hitting, undeniable metal force.

Female lead vocalist Liv, guitarist Jimmy, bassist Chris and drummer Dave created a rough-around-the-edges yet relatable image of dysfunction and attitude. Backed up with fresh lyrics and gritty riffs, SISTER SIN set out to inject some of what had been absent from the heavy metal scene since the glory days of MÖTLEY CRÜE, MOTÖRHEAD, W.A.S.P. and ACCEPT.

"Switchblade Serenades" was produced by Tobias Lindell at Bohus Sound Studios in Sweden.
