the Skinny: Sick Puppies don’t do things halfway, not when they’re playing live in front of their rabid fans, nor when they tackled Tri-Polar, their second major label album for RMR/ Virgin/EMI and follow-up to Dressed Up As Life. “I used to be much more concerned with fame, fortune and rock stardom,” admits Shimon. “Now my main focus is joy. A few things have happened to me over the last few years which made me realize nothing is forever. There’s always a negative and positive way to look at stuff, and you can eliminate the negative by focusing on the positive, but that’s the most difficult thing in the world to do.” On Tri-Polar, Sick Puppies see the glass as not just half-full, but brimming over with the kind of solid-rock anthems that’ll remind even the most cynical that absolutely anything is possible.  [ END ]
