Setting the Record Straight. An interview Shim Moore from the Sick Puppies
Jonathan NewsomeMay. 05
Sydney, Australia has given us a lot of cool things over time. I
for one have it on my bucket list of places to travel. One export
that has really taken a hold of a lot of music fans is the band Sick
Puppies. With their aggressive guitars, massive hooks and deep lyrical
approach, the band has won over fans worldwide. As the band puts the
finishing touches on their next album, we sat down for a few questions.
They are currently gearing up for the the Summer festival season and
are about to embark on a small headlining tour. One can only figure
the fans will get treated to a few new tunes before the album drops.
In fact, I’ll be covering the show tonight in Lexington, KY
at Buster’s. If you are around the area, I highly suggest you
come on down and support a great band and a terrific venue.
Glad to be here.
That’s actually a rumour that started after a web chat that
we did with sickpuppiesworldcrew.com. One of our fans paused the screen
and saw one of the titles to a song off the record. The album is actually
YES! JULY 16TH!
It actually came from Sick Puppies world crew. They helped us to
set it up. If you want to get connected to more exclusive band info,

We wrote over a hundred songs before we made the record. Then we
recorded it in one go to avoid confusion. We were lucky to have that
much time to devote to it and once you hear it, we feel the results
will speak for itself.
Thank you for doing that type of research. I think the best answer
is: We took the best parts of all 3 of those records and made Connect.
It’s definitely been an evolution.
Not at all actually. We write on an acoustic guitar and let the song
speak for itself. After that if it gives you goose bumps, then it
will only sound better when it’s plugged in.
Under a Very Black Sky was the largest musical leap for us. But you’ll
have to pick up the album on July 16th to hear it!
I don’t think that will be something Sick Puppies is interested
Never say never…But not for a while.
We will be playing the first single There’s No Going Back,
which is set to be released on 5/20.
A spider monkey. I’ll leave the definition up to you…
