Tour Press Force (TPF) met up with the French Rock duo SINNER SINNERS at the NAMM Show 2017 where we talked about the origins of the group, the visa challenge, and of course the upcoming release of their third full-length album Optimism Disorder, on March 7, 2017 via Cadavra Records. Check out the SINNER SINNERS Interview | NAMM 2017 (Track Back to NAMM Series).
Adrenaline PR –For Immediate Release
Optimism Disorder burns with a neurotic Post-Punk brightness, further influenced by the intensity of early '80s Hardcore fused with an incendiary '70s Goth ethos.
Following up shortly after last week's release of their track and video for “Celexa Blues” featuring Jesse Hughes of Eagles Of Death Metal, SINNER SINNERS are revealing another new music video for their catchy, chorus-driven rock track “Desperation Saved Me...”. Check out the video, directed by Jeremy Thomas, now via Fuse.tv.
Frontman Steve Thill states, “‘Desperation Saved Me...’ started out as a tribute to French composer Serge Gainsbourg. Since we took a very classic approach to this record, we wanted to have the mandatory ballad. The vocals are more spoken like many of Gainsbourg's songs, and the lyrics are about the many times being desperate was actually a good thing and kept us out of the gutter.”
Optimism Disorder is available for pre-order in digital and CD formats here. In addition, Optimism Disorder will also be available on limited edition, colored 12-inch vinyl via Last Hurrah Records in North America. European fans can order their vinyl via Left Front Door Records.
As touched upon with the previously released tracks from Optimism Disorder (“California”, “Last Drop”, “Celexa Blues” and “Hate Yourself”), the album's 11 tracks illustrate a dynamic and relatable portrait of social hypocrisy, depression, personal anxiety and paranoia inspired by suffocating reality, duplicitous relationships, fluctuating political climate and tragedy.
Optimism Disorder track listing:
1. Last Drop
3. Desperation Saved Me...
5. Hate Yourself
8. Together We Stand
9. I Had Too Much To Dream (written by Annette Tucker and Nancie Mantz, as performed by the Electric Prunes)
