APPICE Brothers Get 'Sinister' October 27

Artist: 
APPICE
--  First studio album from the two legendary drum brothers together -
- Album release October 27th, 2017 -
 
You're unlikely to find a phenomenon like Carmine and Vinny Appice a second time in the history of rock music. For more than forty years, the two brothers have been among the most sought-after and renowned rock drummers worldwide. Carmine and Vinny (each of them on their own) can be heard on numerous legendary albums and have toured countless times with some of the world's greatest acts. Carmine embarked on his musical path in the 1960s with the unforgotten Vanilla Fudge, manning in the course of his illustrious career the drums for superstars such as Rod Stewart and Ozzy Osbourne, among others. His brother Vinny, who is eleven years his junior, looks back on an equally spectacular career, having worked with acts such as Black SabbathHeaven & Hell and Dio, among others. With the exception of the live album Drum Wars – Live! (2014), there has been no direct collaboration between the two so far.-  That's about to change! Sinister is the first joint studio album by Carmine and Vinny and was recorded with the support of a number of prestigious guests. Vinny: 'As Ringo said: with a little help from our friends.'
 
Sinister consists of a total of 13 tracks, recorded by Carmine and Vinny together with distinguished colleagues. -´Killing Floor` and -´Future Past` feature the wonderful Craig Goldy (together with bassist Tony Franklin), Franklin resurfacing, together with Paul Shortino, on -´Suddenly` and on -´You Got Me Running`. Shortino also lends his awesome vocals to -´War Cry` and the programmatic -´Monsters And Heroes`, the latter also featuring Bulletboys guitarist Mick Sweda, while Shortino teams up with Whitesnake stringsman Joel Hoekstra on -´War Cry`. Talking of vocals: -´Sinister`, -´Danger` (bass: Phil Soussan), -´In The Night` (guitar: Bumblefoot) and -´Sabbath Mash` (guitar: Erik Turner, keyboards: Erik Norlander) are all sung by Jim Crean, while Chas West recorded the vocal parts for -´Killing Floor`, Scotty Bruce featuring on -´Future Past` and Robin McAuley on -´Riot`. The biggest surprise of all: Carmine himself doubles as vocalist on -´You Got Me Running`. Vinny-Carmine has been singing lead and background for years. He-´s a very good singer and I-´m glad he sang one number on this record.'
 
So fans can look forward to a haunting rock album which the Appice brothers plan to premiere live on stage as soon as possible. Carmine-We cannot wait to take the album on the road! Heavy drums and heavy songs. It will kill!'
 
"Sinister" will be released on October 27th, 2017 through SPV/Steamhammer as CD digipack, double gatefold vinyl, download and stream.

Artist: 
 
APPICE
- First studio album from the two legendary drum brothers together -
- APPICE album release in autumn 2017 -
- Guest appearances by members and ex-members of Whitesnake, Dio, WASP, Quiet Riot and many more -
 
The two legendary drum brothers Carmine (Rod Stewart, Ozzy Osbourne, Blue Murder, King Kobra) and Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath, Dio, Last In Line) are recording their first ever studio album together this spring under the name APPICE.

'After decades in this crazy music business, we will sit down for the first time and record songs TOGETHER for an amazing new studio album! The album will feature both new songs and classic tracks from our history! This is very exciting for us as we will have, as Ringo said, 'A Little Help from My/Our Friends'. With that in mind, the result will be great sounding spine-shaking rhythmic foundations, along with BIG giant melodic guitars from hell, and on top, blazing vocals and melodies that will tear it all up! A first in a lifetime for us brothers!" say Carmine and Vinny.

 
Expect some great friends/guests to contribute to this album including Joel Hoekstra (Whitesnake), Paul Shortino (Quiet Riot, Rough Cutt), Johnny Rod (WASP, King Kobra), Craig Goldy (Dio), Tony Franklin (The Firm, Blue Murder) and members of Last In Line among others.

Carmine says: 'I am so excited to be doing this new Appice CD. It is always a challenge and fun doing music with Vinny. This CD is no exception and we will be doing cool songs with double drumming and lots ear candy for our fans, not to mention playing with some of our special friends. The recording process is coming out great. Cannot wait to finish and take it on the road! Heavy drums and heavy songs. It will kill!'
 
Vinny adds: 'A studio album that was years in the making has now come to life! Our first ever studio CD together. With great songs, musicians and of course drums and rhythms that will overwhelm your ears and fascinate your mind!'
 
Olly Hahn (Head of Steamhammer) says: "It's an honour to welcome these legendary drummers to the Steamhammer family. Be prepared for an album filled with great musicians and a lot of drum wars!!!"
 
The yet untitled studio album will be released in October 2017 through SPV/Steamhammer as CD digipack, double gatefold vinyl, download and stream.
 
More news within the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
