“Sex is good, caffeine is a drug, greed is an addiction, love based religions have killed millions in the name of their god and Jesus loved the white trash of his time”…London LeGrande

HOLLYWOOD – After Nikki Sixx succumbed to the demands to reform Motley Crue, the undaunted co-founder, Tracii Guns, lead vocalist London LeGrande and drummer Scot Coogan recruited former Amen bassist Scott Sorry. Armed with a batch of strong new songs and a unified band spirit, this new incarnation has not lost its step. The group soon entered into a new record deal with Shrapnel Records founder Mike Varney. Varney signed Brides of Destruction to his label Shrapnel/Ryko at the end of 2004 and they soon found themselves in the studio with veteran producer Andy Johns (Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, and Free). The result of this incredible union “Runaway Brides” is a staggering collection of street lethal rock and roll, imbued with both the classic rock & roll spirit and the edge of modern youth.

In the tradition of Brides of Destruction, the music continues to be stripped down and raw with dark, melodic lyrics. The music is utterly electrifying in the realms of Black Sabbath, The Sex Pistols and early KISS.

The first single “WHITE TRASH” is exactly what it sounds like. “The pot calls the kettle black can’t buy class …but in LA it’s all for free all you need is a casting couch, a bloody scalpel and a sugar daddy,” recites LeGrande. It pays homage to all the trailer-park-style culture and the people that try to leave them. From there the Brides discharges a slew of slamming songs like “Criminal”, “Deadman’s Ruin” and “Lords of the Mind.” “This is the record we always wanted to make,” states Tracii Guns. “It has a great blend of modern rock heaviness with retro sounds and styles. It is the perfect ‘Brides’ record of today.”
