Brand New Sin On Tour With Type O Negative, Celtic Frost
March 30, 2007
Brand New Sin just kicked off a U.S. tour alongside Type O Negative, and will be direct support until labelmates Celtic Frost join the bill on April 9th. This trek marks the group’s second U.S. run in support of their critically acclaimed album, 'Tequila', which Decibel magazine praises as “accessible, blue-collar, booze-tinged metal.”

Brand New Sin recently completed a highly successful UK tour alongside Soil, the first European run of their career. Last week, they returned to the roads of America with two sold-out shows alongside Stone Sour.

Check out their video for “Motormethhere.

Joe Altier (vocals) further describes his excitement over the upcoming tour: “We are extremely excited to be on road with the legendary Type O Negative. We thank Pete Steele and the rest of the guys for asking us to be a part of their first tour in nearly three years. This friendship was born when Peter joined us in the studio last year to lend his vocals to the track "Reaper Man," which we hope to perform live with him on a few dates this spring. We are also looking forward to having Celtic Frost on the bill. I know this lineup seems strange, but in a world where most tours feature bands that all sound exactly the same, this diverse bill should be a treat for fans old and young. Our set on this tour will see some more of the songs featured on our new disc 'Tequila', as well as some classics. Come out and enjoy what is bound to be one hell of a tour. See you all soon.”

HOME TOWN: Syracuse, NY
Joe Altier (vocals)

Kris Wiechmann (guitar)
Ken Dunham (guitar)
Mike Rafferty (drums)

"This record will make you want to play air guitar in front of the mirror again, like Appetite For Destruction," according to guitarist Ken Dunham.That's quite a ballsy statement for a new band to make, but Brand New Sin's devil/may/care attitude is as confident and refreshing as the dirty, blues-infused hard rock they make. When a band follows in the tradition of legends like Iron Maiden, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Black Sabbath and powers its rock with three guitarists it ends up sounding like Motorhead after a fist fight with Down and Corrosion Of Conformity. Hailing from Syracuse, once considered the straight edge, hardcore capitol of the world, Brand New Sin features former members of the critically acclaimed metalcore band Godbelow. Thanks to its masculine riffs and brawny vocals, Brand New Sin could easily redefine Syracuse as a town that produces solid, blue-collar rock bands, as opposed to manufacturing samey moshcore. Brand New Sin, named after what the band describes as the "birth of something bad and the epitome of gluttony," formed when Godbelow wanted to go in a new direction. Since Godbelow embodied a specific type of reputation, the band decided to change their name in accordance with their new sound. BNS now resembles a mesmerizing amalgam of sludgy, dirt-under-the-fingernails, calloused skin rock and down home, southern style blues. These fine young gentlemen knew they wanted to play a bourbon-soaked blend of rock-n-roll and started composing those types of songs. Unfortunately, they lacked the key ingredient: the right singer. Enter Joe Altier, a friend of a friend, a burly man with the deep, husky voice; one that is clear and doesn't require you to sit down with a lyric sheet in order to decipher his barks. BNS invited him to sing on "Broken Soul" and the rest, as they say, is history. Brand New Sin, and their hulking self-titled, Now Or Never Records debut, is one of those rare rock records that is erected through talent, skill, passion and an iron clad work ethic. Brand New Sin was produced by local knobsman Pete Walker at Village Recorders in Liverpool, New York. The album boasts such raw fury that will propel BNS to the status of "the next big thang in rock." The mighty "S.P.P" and the soul purging "My World" could put hair on the chest of even the hottest supermodel on the planet. "Brand New Sin is unyielding rock-n-roll power and timelessness," says Altier, "You can pick this record up twenty years from now and it will still feel as fresh and relevant as it does today." Indeed, Brand New Sin could ultimately join the ranks of classic bands like Led Zeppelin. Guitarist Kris Wiechmann adds, "Our album is like the first drink an alcoholic takes after walking out of rehab; it feels fucking great." While you let your hair down when listening, Brand New Sin isn't hedonistic, mindless rock 'n roll. It feels down, dirty, and sweaty, but it's backed up by thoughtful lyrical content. Slider and Altier share lyrical duties and Altier says the lyrics deal with "struggles with oneself. They're very personal, but vague enough to where they can be adapted by anyone. Make 'em your own." When speaking about the music, Weichmann says, "We have moshy, fast parts and a lot of people are fooled by that. However, we can also write a song that will make you cry." Continuing on that line of thought, Slider finishes, "We weren't pigeonholed into writing full out ballistic music. I can write acoustic songs as well." For a more concrete example of BNS's songwriting complexities, check out the beautifully understated album track, "Missin You." Brand New Sin will dominate the world afterwards through non-stop touring, systematically capturing the filthy hearts of every rock hound on international soil. The 1% of the population that might accidentally sleep on this record, Dunham has the answer, "this band is unlimited music and won't be overlooked." Brand New Sin: no boundaries, no limits, and nowhere to go but up.
