Australian rock trio Sick Puppies will release Connect on July 16, which will be preceded by the first single "There's No Going Back."
Connect follows Tri-Polar, with its melding of room-filling rockers and edgy yet poignant rock/pop, is poised to be the band's best-selling record yet.
As singer/guitarist/co-founder Shim Moore explains, "We've always had the colors to work with, but we really got to use some broad strokes in Polar Opposite, our 2011 acoustic record. It was always a dream of mine to work with strings and a choir, and our producer made it kinda trippy and unusual on Polar Opposite. So I was looking forward to taking some of the elements of that, and furthering some melodies and sentiments of [2007's U.S. debut] Dressed Up as Life, and some heaviness from Tri-Polar. It's an amalgamation of all into one, which is why I think it's our best work to date."
Co-founded by Moore and bassist Emma Anzai while in high school in Australia, Sick Puppies moved to Los Angeles, and soon made the road their home, touring ceaselessly, earning tons of rabid fans and rave reviews at every stop.
