The brillaint Sal Vitro released debut album yesterday
Having upped sticks from the Emerald Isle to hustle their brand of low-slung Rock’n’Roll under the lights of London, Sal Vitro now unveil their debut album ‘Cirque Du Sleaze’ – out July 13th led by their second single ‘It’s Not Love’, released last week on IRL.
Permeated with rabble-rousing vocals, grinning Blues hooks and New Orleans-infused rhythm, the album radiates passion and Devil-may-care fun. ‘Cirque Du Sleaze’ is a celebration of Rock’n’Roll’s excessive pleasures and the road to ultimate redemption – thrilling without ever losing its Soul.
Touring extensively has honed the band into seasoned performers. Among others, they’ve joined the legendary Thin Lizzy on their Farewell Tour to a sold out Olympia Theatre, opened for Jeff Beck andRichie Sambora, and rocked out to audiences 10,000-strong for Status Quo.
Having met on a modelling shoot in Dublin in 2011, Josh Dunford, Owie Lumsden, John Cuddy and Rourke Bradley joined their powers to tear through gospel choirs and Deep South whisky bars – keeping it together with plenty of homeland charm.
Searing through the ins and outs of a throwaway, shallow affair, second single from the album ‘It’s Not Love’ is a track for anyone who’s ever enjoyed something fleeting. Fast paced and contagious, it nods to the Black Keys via the no-nonsense rock sensibilities of Rival Sons.
The band will play an album launch gig at London’s Barfly on July 16th. RSVP for media guestlist. Sal Vitro are available for interview.
Buckle up and enjoy the spectacle – Sal Vitro have all the tricks to seduce you into their circus until you’re swinging from the Big Top.
