Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to introduce you to the Charm City Devils, the first signing from Eleven Seven Music’s President, Nikki Sixx. “When I first heard Charm City Devils, my initial thought, along with everyone at Eleven Seven, was this is a real rock band! When I listen to their music I hear elements of credible bands like Aerosmith and I feel AC/DC. I like the fact that they’re from Baltimore and the way they relate the working mans experience. They’re not from New York or LA. You don’t hear many bands from Baltimore and these guys carry on tradition with their own relevant and modern sound with classic riffs,” said Sixx.
“This album comes from an emotional level. The lyrics are very honest; they’re pieces of my life, real things. Some are more sensitive and some deal with heavy issues, but they are balanced out by the fun, energetic songs that bring back some of that 1980s heyday of hard rock that audiences are longing for” says frontman John Allen. “I truly believe that raw emotion and honesty transcend all trends, and that if music has that classic kind of sound, it will have longevity,” he states. “That’s our goal: to transcend the times and not compromise the integrity of what we do.”
The band’s debut album Let’s Rock-N-Roll, is slated to hit stores on May 26, 2009. In support of the release from Eleven Seven Music, Charm City Devils will be touring regionally, as well as going on the road with Motley Crue, Buckcherry, and Papa Roach in 2009.
