Just one year after their highly praised, self-titled debut album, SAINTED SINNERS return with their second effort “Back With A Vengeance”, set to be released on February 16th, via El Puerto Records.
SAINTED SINNERS present their first single out of the new record, called “Burnin The Candle”. Watch the video clip, which was shot in Hamburg a month ago:
“For the video we went for a very spontaneous approach”, explains Frank Pané. “Having a day off in Hamburg between two shows, we were happy to have our friend Volker Thiele (who did our previous clips as well) with us. There was no bigger plan what to do, we basically walked through the city searching for cool locations.”
David Reece adds: “The shooting was a challenge, because firstly the weather was cold and we shot some on the pier in Hamburg, but it was freezing balls and tough to do. We looked behind us and there was Hard Rock Cafe Hamburg, so we asked the manager out of need to warm up if we could shoot some footage and he luckily agreed, before we froze to death, haha!”

“Back With A Vengeance” is now available for pre-order:
“Back With A Vengeance” is another step forward, of a band that is going to establish their very own sound. Fronted by the unique, soul-driven voice of American born vocalist David Reece (ex-ACCEPT) and highly gifted guitar player Frank Pané (BONFIRE), SAINTED SINNERS got completed by the dynamic rhythm section of the two former PURPENDICULAR members Malte Frederik Burkert (bass) and the Hungarian drum maestro Berci Hirleman.
“We were aiming for a more guitar heavy approach this time and also a warmer, more ballsy sound”, explains Frank Pané and continues: “This time we already knew where to go. You definitely can hear my huge VAN HALEN & Randy Rhoads influences more than on the previous one. But it also has that DEEP PURPLE touch, even with less keyboards this time. In other songs you definitely hear a RAINBOW & DIO influence….and it goes on and on. These influences are totally natural and are not planned. So we just go with the flow and that’s “the essence of Rock ‘n Roll” for us.”
The keyboards on »Back With A Vengeance« were handled by the two guest members Angel Vafeiadis and Los Angeles based Eric Ragno, who known for his contribution for Alice Cooper, Paul Stanley (KISS) and Billy Gibbons (ZZ TOP).
„I’m really happy and satisfied with the end result“, summarizes Frank Pané. „Being a new band, it’s hard to be recognized nowadays with all the hundreds of releases every month, so we wanted to make a statement that Sainted Sinners is a band you should look out for.“
»Back With A Vengeance« should definetly be on your shopping list for 2018. It’s Hard Rock with balls, but also with heart and soul, a lot of energy, emotions… and simply – and this is what counts – brilliant songs!
