Badmouth Post “Tired” Video From Upcoming CD
June 7, 2011
Swedish hard rockers Badmouth are about to release ‘Heavy Metal Parking Lot’, the follow-up to their 2008 Paul Sabu produced debut, on June 29th through Rambo Music/Sony. In anticipation of the upcoming CD the band have released a music video for the first single “Tired”.
In the beginning, 2007, Badmouth was only a studio project. Chris LeMon (Bass) and Mike Hill (Rhythm Guitar) had no intentions to play live or even to record an album — Just a couple of friends recording and writing songs. The next obvious step was to find band members so they called on Tom Pearsson (Vocals), Randy Joy (Lead Guitar) and Rick Hard (drums) to complete the lineup and thus, Badmouth was born. As they began to work hard in different social networks they rapidly developed a loyal fanbase. It was then the band decided to record a full length album and aim for the top.
2008 saw the release of their self titled debut by an American indepent label. It was produced by Paul Sabu (best known for his work with Alice Cooper and W.A.S.P.) and was very well received by fans and critics all over the world. The band did a handfull of European tours in 2009, opening for Kingdom Come, L.A. Guns and Pretty Boy Floyd and played shows with Sator, Zodiac Mindwarp and The Poodles among others. Badmouth was also 1 of 5 bands who won a competition to perform at the Arvika Festival that summer.
In 2010 Rick Hard was replaced by Vinnie Sharpe. The band then teamed up with notorious producer Chips Kiesbye (Hellacopters, Sahara Hotnights, Millencollin, etc) and began work on their sophomore effort ‘Heavy Metal Parking Lot’ which is to be released on June 29th, 2011. In the meantime they inked a deal with Rambo Music (Sony/Gain). Badmouth is set to support Cinderella at Arenan on June 20th and is booked at the Skogsrojet Festival in August along with W.A.S.P., U.D.O., D-A-D, Bullet and Hardcore Superstar.
