Scarlet Violet Upload “Roll The Dice” Music Video
July 11, 2011
Italian rockers Scarlet Violet have posted a new music video for the song “Roll The Dice”, from the band’s 2010 EP of the same name — available for purchase at www.sliptrickrecords.com. The video was shot during the band’s shows in Japan and Latvia and can be viewed below.
Scarlet Violet formed in Milan, Italy in 2005. The initial source of inspiration for the Milanese quartet were records by Alice Cooper, Guns ‘N Roses, Motley Crue and Poison. The first line-up featured the two brothers FYLO (who was fifteen at the time) on the guitar and NK on the drums, L.A. on the vocals and FEDEXX on the bass. After spending several hours in rehearsal rooms playing every hard rock cover under the sun, the four decide it was time to write their own material.
They recorded their first demo two months after forming — it contained the band’s first three original songs which, though recorded on a low budget, were sufficient to give a rough idea of the band’s musical direction. The following year the five song ‘Ready To Rock’ EP was recorded, the perfect mix of raw yet professional sounds. The title track was featured on the ‘Perris Network Compilation’ in early 2007.
In December 2007 NK left the band — despite losing a precious component, the band decided not to stop, and shortly thereafter found a valid substitute in JOEY, the current Scarlet Violet drummer. Soon enough, the band signed a record deal with New York based indie label Sliptrick Records. Hard work, inspiration and total dedication made Scarlet Violet’s first full-length and self-financed effort possible, as ‘Animated Freaks’ was released in 2008. The track “Hey You!” was featured on the USA compilation ‘Glamnation Vol.5’.
The band then recorded two new singles, “It’s Over” and “Drunk On Elm Street”, mixed and mastered by top producer Beau Hill (Alice Cooper, Europe, Twisted Sister, Ratt, Warrant, etc). Between the summer and fall of 2009, the band promoted their debut album with tours in the Baltic and Northern Europe, hitting countries such as Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Finland. In June 2010 the band recorded two new singles, mixed and mastered by King Diamond guitarist Andy LaRocque at Sonic Train Studios in Sweden and then on November 1, 2010 Scarket Violat released the EP ‘Roll The Dice’.
