Devil City Angels Self-Titled Debut Album – Exclusive Stream
The time has come for Devil City Angels to make their presence felt. The group, featuring veteran rockers Tracii Guns, Brandon Gibbs, Rikki Rockett and Rudy Sarzo, are releasing their self-titled album in stores today via Century Media Records, but if you want a listen before you pick it up, be sure to check out the album stream exclusively here at Loudwire.
It should be noted that the band featured Cinderella's Eric Brittingham on bass during recording, with Sarzo replacing him after the album was complete, but the songs remain strong and representative of the quality that the group's members have provided throughout their career.
The band recently premiered the song "All My People" here at Loudwire. As Guns stated, "'All My People’ was the first track we recorded. It was about 80 percent finished when our singer Brandon brought it in to us. We freshened it up a bit, put the microphones in front of the band, and the moment we listened back, we all agreed we had something special in the chemistry of the band. It was a very positive moment in time. I suppose you could say this was the song that birthed Devil City Angels.”
Devil City Angels also recently premiered the song "Boneyard" over at Ultimate Classic Rock. “Brandon had written this song originally with his brother,” Guns stated. “It was pretty straightforward, and it wasn’t called ‘Boneyard.’ The first thing I heard, I said, ‘Wait a minute — if we play it like this, with kind of a Keith Richards meets Angus Young kind of thing, it would sound really cool.’ We tried it and everybody, you know, we kind of went, ‘Wow, man. This is simple and cool and big sounding.’ We kind of redid the arrangement a little bit, and I added that little Jimmy Page part in there instead of doing a straight up guitar solo, and it just turned into a really neat, organized, powerful, immediate sounding piece of music.”
