Fans of Sick Puppies have been anxiously awaiting the next chapter in their story. Today, Loudwire has revealed that Houston-based singer-guitarist Bryan Scott has joined bassist Emma Anzai and drummer Mark Goodwin in the band, who parted ways with singer-guitarist Shim Moore in October 2014. In December, Sick Puppies offered a video teaser of a studio performance with their new vocalist, but carefully hid his identity. Scott previously played with Glass Intrepid and Dev Electric and briefly toured as vocalist for Atlantic Records rock act Emphatic in 2011.
“As soon as I found out about the lineup change, my gut feeling told me to reach out to Emma and Mark, and we clicked right away. I knew this was a shot that could change the course of my life so I flew out to L.A. to audition the next morning,” reveals Scott.
“Before we met Bryan in person, we knew he’d be a great fit. His audition of ‘Odd One’ and ‘You’re Going Down’ was on point and from there the music progressed naturally,” add Anzai and Goodwin.
You can get your first taste of new Sick Puppies music as a snippet of the song “Stick to Your Guns” plays in the introductory video teaser above. The song is expected to arrive in March with the album to follow later in the spring.
Sick Puppies have also begun booking shows, and have festival appearances lined up for the 98Rock Fest, Welcome to Rockville, Carolina Rebellion and Rock on the Range.
