Since then they have released three more albums: This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In), Vena Sera, and the most recent Sci-Fi Crimes. Of Sci-Fi Crimes Sam Loeffler said, “We have spent a lot of time making these songs something different from past records without losing the core of our passion. We are a hard rock, melodic band and it’s still what drives us as musicians.” Catch them at the Murat Theatre Center this Friday, February 19, after their opening act Sick Puppies.

Sick Puppies is an Australian band who successfully broke into the United States music scene. When founding members vocalist, guitarist and songwriter Shimon Moore and bassist Emma Anzai made this decision, their first step was to pick up and move to Los Angeles. After arriving at LAX, the pair settled into the scene and began to search for their drummer. They found Orange County native Mark Goodwin via Craig’s List.

Together the trio have lead a grueling tour life in the rock and roll fast lane. As they honed their chops on the road, they became a “finely tuned powerhouse ready to let loose with the anger, frustration and triumphs built up from all that road work.” Known for their incredibly aggressive musical style, the bands single “You’re Going Down” is currently being used as the theme song for WWE’s Extreme Rules pay-per-view broadcast. In addition their song “Street Fighter War” was selected as music for the popular video game Street Fighter IV.

There songs with titles like “Survive,” “I Hate You” and “So What I Lied” are characterized by jagged Nirvana-esque grunge with a dash of Rage Against the Machine. There latest release Tri-Polar has a more joyful focus than their previous work. The band feels convinced that their solid rock anthems will convince even the most jaded listener that “absolutely anything is possible.”
