Doused in the (street) waters of Los Angeles, California, gritty hard rockers BUDDERSIDE are fronted by Patrick Stone, who was with the likes of Quiet Riot, Velvet Revolver and Adler’s Appetite before realizing the ultimate dream of his own band and singing his own songs to the world. Enter Michael “The Stoneman” Stone on bass, Rich Sacco on drums and Johnny Santoro, (Still Standing, Rock Sugar) on guitar to form a rock-solid band of brothers with instantly unbreakable bonds.
BUDDERSIDE manager Todd Singerman of Singerman Entertainment (Motörhead) ensured the band went into Rosewood Strat Studio with producer Paul Inder Kilmister (son of Lemmy Kilmister). And the result is a searing-hot, self-titled debut album Budderside,which is due for release on July 29, 2016 via Motörhead Music/UDR. Pre-orders will be available soon, which will come in digipack, digital download and streaming formats.
Take a look at the video for BUDDERSIDE‘s first single “Pain” now via YouTube:
In the video, we see a gym janitor making eyes at a female boxer, who of course knocks him out. A daydream of unlikely grandeur ensues – chock full of scantily-clad vixens boxing one another and a full on BUDDERSIDE concert in the ring! But is this really a daydream? Watch the video to find out!
BUDDERSIDE vocalist Patrick Stone’s drive and verve come from a need to make sense of all life’s challenges – politics, sex, philosophy, rage, love, light, sound, senses – and express them all with one unifying current racing through it all – electricity, and Stone is far from encumbered by any perceived ‘limitations’ of a rock band more than he is empowered by the freedom to explore.
That seeker-spirit sees BUDDERSIDE go from the thick, thumping, leather-clad rock riffery of “The Envelope” to the ska-tinted mobility of “Ska-Bra” which also features Motörhead‘s Phil Campbell on guitar. There’s the bendy, grungy intoxication of “X-Girlfriend”, the big-stage orchestral grandiosity of “Can’t Wrap My Head Around You” and the thicker, space-fuzzy buzz-riff of “Open Relationship”… which all serve to say that whatever sonic broadsword BUDDERSIDE want to swing, they swing with freedom and verve.
Infectious, gritty, contagious and altogether dangerous, BUDDERSIDE demand your fullest focus and most engaged attention. Stay tuned for more coming from BUDDERSIDE soon.
