Tantrum Streaming “Sweet 16” Track On Sleaze Roxx
October 8, 2012
On August 13th Tantrum released their self-titled album through Demon Doll Records, and now Sleaze Roxx brings you the album’s first single “Sweet 16”.
Tantrum was initially formed in 1989 by brothers Mike (guitar and main songwriter) and Steve Rian (drums) and their new effort consists of songs originally released independently.
“We played out in bars and rented halls for a few years and wrote a lot of original material along the way,” Steve Rian told SleazeRoxx.com. “By 1991 or so, Mike and I knew that we had the right lineup with the addition of lead singer Mike Chapin and long-time bassist Scott Hummel. We released two albums as Tantrum and toured around Ohio and Indiana between 1992 and 1997. Before long, we were breaking fire codes, packing places and selling them out of liquor, getting some radio airplay and doing what tight bands do. Our independent albums did pretty well and we were known to be a great ‘live’ band. Before all was said and done, we played before thousands of people and opened for many artists such as DIO, Quiet Riot, Warrant, Dee Snider and Dangerous Toys. Since then, we have all done various music projects here and there, including studio work, an instrumental album (my brother Mike and I under the name Audio Daredevils), live acoustic performances and even a stint in a country band.”
Tantrum’s self-titled album, featuring tracks such as “Partyin”, “Skydiver”, “Risk Whiskey” and “Next Of Kin”, can now be purchased at demondollrecords.com/tantrum.
