The Cruel Intentions release video for new single “Sunrise Over Sunset”
Swedish rockers The Cruel Intentions consisting of frontman Lizzy DeVine (ex-Vains of Jenna) bassist Mats Wernerson, drummer Robin Nilsson and lead guitarist Kristian Nygaard Solhaug have released a video for their new single “Sunrise Over Sunset” from their upcoming sophomore album Venomous Anonymous, which will be available in June 2022.
The Cruel Intentions‘ debut album No Sign of Relief finished at #4 on the Sleaze Roxx’s Top Ten Albums of 2018 and #3 on the Sleaze Roxx Readers’ Top 20 Albums of 2018. Sleaze Roxx stated with respect to that latter finish: “The Cruel Intentions‘ frontman Lizzy DeVine may well hold the record for the longest gap between appearances on the Sleaze Roxx Readers’ Top 20 Albums of the Year lists. DeVine‘s previous band Vains of Jenna scored a #16 finish with their album Lit Up / Let Down in 2006 and a #9 spot with The Art of Telling Lies in 2009. Ten years later, DeVine is back and stronger than ever with a very impressive #3 finish with The Cruel Intentions‘ debut album.
How well did The Cruel Intentions fare with the Sleaze Roxx readers? The 652 points that The Cruel Intentions accumulated would have landed them the #1 spot on any Sleaze Roxx readers’ Top 20 Album poll except in 2010 (Ratt‘s Infestation got 817 votes) and in 2017 (L.A. Guns‘ The Missing Peace received 790 points). The Cruel Intentions have delivered a truly exceptional debut album and there’s nothing to be ashamed of in getting beaten by two bands that have each released more than ten studio albums. It will be very interesting to see how The Cruel Intentions follow up their debut album No Sign Of Relief (I am assuming that the band will be continuing and hopefully for a long time to come) and how long it will take for the band’s sophomore album to be released.”
