To give the already-growing mass of fans what they want now, ‘Sins’, the second album from Charm City Devils, will be released exclusively via iTunes on April 1st via Fat Lady Music.
The first single from ‘Sins’, a cover of “Man Of Constant Sorrow” (from the Grammy®-winning soundtrack of the George Clooney Oscar®-nominated film ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou?’), is quickly making a name for itself on the Rock radio airwaves. A lyric video for the song was recently released and can be seen below.
When the band (singer John Allen, guitarist Vic Karrera, bassist Anthony Arambula, guitarist Nick Kay and drummer Jason Heiser) started to put the new album together, they discussed covering a classic song and incorporating it into their live show. As singer John Allen, “There were many ideas kicked around, but which one? “Man Of Constant Sorrow” came up and we decided to give it a try. It’s an incredibly powerful song, but it was a challenge to develop and arrange it in a way that captured the essence of the song but would also rock! We all loved the version from ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou?’ Skidd Mills and I built a foundation and with much tweaking and editing, and I think we delivered a great version of the song. The song transcends generations. It’s a timeless classic and it’s been around a long time. I’m excited to bring it to a whole new group of rock fans.”
‘Sins’ finds the Baltimore band adding harder, edgier tones to their blues-based roots. The result of the band’s life experiences over the past few years, SINS features an aggression and energy that hits you right between the eyes. From the first note of “Spite” to the last cymbal crash of “Unstoppable,” ‘Sins’ showcases the bands power, directness and new found energy and intensity.
