Opening the show was LA – by way of France – band Sinner Sinners. Fronted by husband and wife pair Steve and Sam, their sound is horror-punk laced with electronica, frenzied, versatile, and dark. Steve spent several songs singing from the crowd while the formed a pit around him and jumping up on the bar’s barrier wall for a bit, providing a “what will he do next?” aura. Dressed all in black, with all white guitars, they might throw you for a loop if you try to put their music in a tidy little genre, but they’re definitely worth a listen, putting in the work needed for both a great set and a great sound.

It’s no secret that breakout Los Angeles rock n’ roll outfit SINNER SINNERS are close with Jesse Hughes of renowned California rock band Eagles of Death Metal, who have released videos of themselves performing together in the past.

Recently, SINNER SINNERS was personally invited to perform with Refused in Los Angeles at The Roxy Theatre – the performance sold out. This was a great dream come true for the band, as they have been fans of Refused since their teenage years. Watch the performance video here: http://youtu.be/s-yCW8YshFM
In addition to announcing these dates, SINNER SINNERS recently released a new track “Hate Yourself” off of their upcoming album, which is being written currently. You can download the track for free now via BandCamp: https://sinnersinners.bandcamp.com/track/hate-yourself
Guitarist/vocalist Steve Thill states, “No matter how hard we try to convince ourselves we're worth something, to set goals we will never reach or to have beliefs that we don't respect, deep down, we're all worthless pieces of shit and we're all going to rot in the ground, seeing life on the bright side really.
That aside, we’re working on a new album, it has a more hardcore vibe but still mixed with some psychedelia and rock n roll songs. Honestly, we have no idea where our music is going and we fucking like it.”
SINNER SINNERS released their most recent album, XI, last spring via their own independent label, Cadavra Records. For XI, the band enlisted producer Nic Jodoin (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Amusement Park On Fire, The Morlocks), and recorded at the Glory Hole in Hollywood, CA. Three amazing singles and music videos have spawned from the record (‘No Hard Feelings’, ‘Modern Man’, and ‘Darkness Forever’) with hundreds of thousands of views on them, collectively. Watch them now via the SINNER SINNER’s YouTube page here.
Happily married couple Steve and Sam Thill originally began creating music as SINNER SINNERS in late 2009. Since their inception and relocation to Los Angeles, SINNER SINNERS have pushed their forceful punk-influenced rock n’ roll out to the controlled masses, seeing newfound levels of success and recognition as of late.
