SPOTLIGHT ARTIST OF THE WEEK-SICK PUPPIES 10/25/07

THESE GUYS ARE PLAYING WITH EVANESCENCE AT THE ORANGE BEACH AMPHITHEATRE THIS WEEKEND:


SICK PUPPIES


Sick Puppies are a rock band from Sydney, Australia. The band was formed by singer/lead guitarist Shimon Moore and bassist Emma Anzai in the music room of Mosman High School in 1997, where the two connected because of their shared love for Silverchair. Initially with Shimon on drums and Emma on guitars, the duo would frequently meet up to play Green Day, Rage Against the Machine and Silverchair songs and eventually felt compelled to write their own songs. Soon, Chris Mileski was added to the band to fill in on drums.

Sick Puppies started attracting national attention when their song "Nothing Really Matters" won Triple J's Unearthed in 2000. Later that year, they released their debut album called Welcome to the Real World and were voted for "Best Live Performance" at a rock festival in Sydney. This album was initially supposed to feature a humorous cover version of Destiny's Child's hit single "Say My Name", performed in a post grunge/nu metal style, however the song was not included due to the threat of a lawsuit by Destiny's Child's record label. It was leaked, however, and is readily available and easy to find on the internet on websites and P2P networks. Also, they sometimes play this song live.
The band received a very large amount of exposure for the song "All the Same" which is the theme for Juan Mann's Free Hugs Campaign video on YouTube, although it also has its own video.
The band is currently based in Los Angeles. Their last EP, Headphone Injuries, was digitally released in June 2006. They have also released a single/video from this album called "My World". On September 26, 2006, Sick Puppies digitally released a new single called "All the Same", a song which is featured in the video of Juan Mann's, a man in Sydney famous for initiating the Free Hugs Campaign. The video (which has received over 17 million hits on YouTube already) has helped the band gain airplay in the United States and Canada. The song recently peaked at #8 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart, a massive feat considering the lack of chart success in their home country, Australia. Sick Puppies' second album, Dressed Up As Life came out on April 3, 2007 via Virgin Records [1]. On April 21st, the album debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart in the U.S. Sick Puppies have had considerably more success in the US, where their debut album, Dressed Up As Life has stayed in the top 20 of the Billboard Top Heatseekers for 18 weeks. The album didn't chart within the top 50 on the ARIA album chart.

savereno thinks they are the cool kid
Checked them out, not too bad. The bassist chick is easy on the eyes too. Kind of puts me in the mind of Switchfoot. Not my favorite style, but they are listenable.
