The wait is over; SAINTED SINNERS‘ self-titled debut album is out now. Fronted by the unique, soul-driven voice of American born vocalist DAVID REECE (ex-ACCEPT) and highly gifted guitar player FRANK PANÉ, SAINTED SINNERS got completed by legendary keyboard player FERDY DOERNBERG (AXEL RUDI PELL) and the dynamic rhythm section of the two former PURPENDICULAR members MALTE FREDERIK BURKERT (bass) and the Hungarian drum maestro BERCI HIRLEMAN.
To celebrate today’s album release, the band reveals their brand-new video clip for the song “Maybe She’s Got Balls”. Watch it here:
“Maybe She’s Got Balls” is a lyric about the night life and about a guy who’s bored goes out hunting for something new and when he finds it and takes her home she’s got a big surprise for him when they start to do the deed! LOL – a tongue in cheek lyric about transvestites”, describes David Reece, with a certain smile.
“The riff idea came to me while jamming and using one of my rare effect pedals I use, which is called an Octaver. It adds the lower octave to the note you are playing and gives you a really fat single note sound. This always inspires me to come up with a certain type of groovy riff, which if you want to compare could be a DEEP PURPLE Mark III or IV kinda thing. It also has great soulful lead and background vocals which fit perfect to the „sexy“ groove. Definitely a danceable tune with some cool, funny lyrics”, adds guitarist Frank Pané.

Expressing the “pure essence of rock’n’roll”, was the ambition that paired five well-known and experienced musicians together in early 2016, to create and play the music which is deeply inside their hearts and in their blood. The love for rock legends, such as DEEP PURPLE, LED ZEPPELIN, RAINBOW, WHITESNAKE, UFO, BLACK SABBATH, VAN HALEN and many others, built the cornerstone for the music of the new founded five-piece called SAINTED SINNERS.
“The idea first started with me thinking about forming a band where I can follow my natural taste of music without compromises. I was writing music and then basically formed the band around who would fit the direction it was going”, remembers FRANK PANÉ, whose first step was to contact his former bandmate DAVID REECE. “Being one of my alltime-favourite singers, he was my obvious choice. It just clicked immediately and so we agreed to lead the band together as we trust and respect each other.”
The eleven tracks of »Sainted Sinners« were written and produced by FRANK PANÉ and DAVID REECE, partly recorded at Sound Design in Germany with ROBBIE HOCHWIND during mid-summer 2016, as well as in early fall 2016 by MARIO PERCUDANI at the Tanzan Music Studios. The final mastering was done by DANIELE MANDELLI at Tanzan Music Studios in late fall 2016.
“I feel a very strong sense of pride! I feel it’s a great representation of who I and we are”, summarizes DAVID REECE, who calls the eleven tracks colorful. “Concerning the logistic distance between everybody and the fact that we just started as a band, it’s a very promising debut with many albums to follow”, rejoices FRANK PANÉ. And it becomes obvious, that »Sainted Sinners« is the beginning of a new, exciting hard rocking fairytale.

“Sainted Sinners” will surely send you on a trip down memory lane with its classic blues and heavy rock sound. These guys might easily pass off as a modern day Deep Purple!”
“If you enjoy Deep Purple and vintage Whitesnake then make sure you pick your copy of “Sainted Sinners”… and enjoy it in its entirety like we did in the 70’s and 80’s when we bought “Burn” and “Slide It In”.
