French-American Rock Band Returns with Raucous, Commanding New Album OPTIMISM DISORDER12:24 PM
After spending the last several years living, performing and thriving in the greater Los Angeles, CA area, punk-influenced French-American rock band SINNER SINNERS - founded by husband and wife duo Sam and Steve Thill - have incontrovertibly found their groove.
Optimism Disorder will hit stores on March 7, 2017 via Cadavra Records in North America, and pre-orders will be available on Christmas Day.
"This record took 18 months to complete - we went through some very tough shit in our lives during this time, which is the main reason it took so long. As a result, it's definitely the darkest stuff we've ever written," guitarist/frontman Steve Thill said. "We went for something darker, moodier and heavier and at the same time took a more classic rock approach to it."Further exploring the remote reaches of their experimental skillset, Optimism Disorder is set lyrically in front of a sunny backdrop of societal hypocrisy.
Thill said, "The general idea behind the title and the songs is that it really seems to us that our generation is choking on its own motivational garbage and big dreams. Somehow, we always try to convince ourselves that we deserve better, if not the best, always wanting what others have and all this shit. Things could always be better but it sure as hell could be a lot worst, it's always a matter of perspective. So, we flipped the problem around and had fun with it. Optimism Disorder is about the damages of optimism, religions, group mentality and all kinds of other mental disorders as well as alcoholism, depression, addiction, loss... this is a pretty sinister album made with a whole lot of love and we can guarantee it will ruin your day in just 35 minutes."The LP was recorded at Rancho de La Luna in Joshua Tree, California (mostly known for giving birth to the Desert Sessions and recording artists such as Queens of the Stone Age, Iggy Pop, Kyuss, Arctic Monkeys), assorted Los Angeles hide-outs, and engineered in Clermont-Ferrand France.
"Recording at Rancho de la Luna was a pretty surreal experience and working with Adam was a big step for us because we didn't know each other before working on this record," Thill said. "There was a lot less fucking around than usual, he's very serious and pro, but he brought things out of us we had no idea we could do."Optimism Disorder track listing:
