LA-based rock n’ rollers SINNER SINNERS are pleased to release a music video for their single ‘Modern Man’, available for viewing now via the band’s VEVO page here: http://youtu.be/EMpJcMRXJvM. The video features blistering performance footage spliced in with live-action storytelling. The video is directed by Jettho (Jeremy Thomas) this time, in Los Angeles.
Filming wasn’t a total breeze – the band had a run-in with the local authorities while trying to finish the video! “When we shot James running around and yelling at the camera, it was so convincing that the cops actually flew in and surrounded us with three cars and asked us out of the car at gunpoint, all in line with our hands on our head to question us, standard procedure,” states Steve Thill. “When they put the flashlights to our faces and recognized us, they apologized, asked for a few autographs and we went back to filming.” Talk about a close call!
Steve adds, “This video was inspired by David Lynch’s Lost Highway when we originally came up with the idea, but a more Urban version. It was mostly a good excuse to chase our friend around and make him run.”
The band also has another new music video available for viewing for the single ‘No Hard Feelings’, which is a tongue-in-cheek video based on having fun with French clichés, all exaggerated, of course. The video was created by Riot House Production and shot by Damien Bour and Alexis Magand. Check it out here: http://youtu.be/b3ZcADw2I7w
SINNER SINNERS recently released their brand new album, XI, via their own independent label, Cadavra Records.
Happily married couple Steve and Sam Thill met in a small town in the center of France at the age of 15 and fell fast in love. Eight years later in 2009, the couple started SINNER SINNERS out of their mutual love of rock music and desire to be at each other’s sides throughout all aspects of their musical careers. Since their inception and relocation to Los Angeles, SINNER SINNERS have pushed their forceful punk-influenced rock n’ roll out to the controlled masses, but see 2014 as a figurative launching pad designed to hit the big time.
As with their 2011 release Cardinal Sins, 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 (the previous album also featured production duties from Pascal Mondaz). Interesting fact, SINNER SINNERS recorded with Nic at the same time as Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, actually trading places in the studio throughout the course of the process.
SINNER SINNERS keeps busy outside of the studio as well, boasting recent performances with Black Flag, The Sonics, The Lords of Altamont, The Morlocks, The Creepshow and many more.
