Vancouver, BC based band Bend Sinister are set to release their sophomore full-length album titled Animals. Recorded with two-time Grammy Nominated producer Joe Marlett (Queens of the Stone Age) at Signature Sound in San Diego, Animals follows their American debut Small Fame. Small Fame enjoyed runs up the CBC Radio 3 Chart (#8), Canada’s Earshot (#18) and CMJ (#115) and garnered the band nominations for a Sirius XM “Best Emerging Artist” award and a Western Canadian Music Award for “Best Rock Recording”. Recording in San Diego brought the band a renewed sense of focus and creativity and resulted in their most focused and ambitious work to date. Continuing with their penchant for infectious melodies mixed with soaring guitar and crushing B3 organ, the band has ventured into more complex songwriting territory and branched out into other inspirations from punk to stoner rock to pop music. It features heavy songwriting input from each member with lyrics, chord changes and arrangement ideas coming from all four band mates. The result is exhilirating, ambitious, and uncompromising — it is no surprise that the members of Bend Sinister consider Animals their strongest work to date.
