“We see ourselves as Robin Hoods of rock and roll,” says Burning Brides’ main man Dimitri Coats. The past few years have been one big adventure for the tough-as-nails rock trio. They came up from the streets of Philadelphia, raided the corridors of corporate record biz power and emerged with their artistic integrity intact. Now they’re ready to give it to the people.

Hang Love is Burning Brides’ third album, a raging slab of towering riffs and melodies that stick to your soul. It’s rare to find such unrelentingly heavy rock coexisting with a keen sense for pop melody. But as Dimitri points out, “our band is all about opposites. Even the name Burning Brides and the way we sound; there’s a fine line between beauty and darkness.”

Or to sum it up in one simple word: Rock! It’s a rare commodity these days. But those who know and love it have given Burning Brides the seal of approval. Chris Cornell and tastemaker ex-Pistol DJ Steve Jones are believers. So is rock and roll luthier Mark Fuqua, guitar maker to Queens of the Stone Age and the Eagles of Death Metal, who designed a guitar especially for Dimitri, telling him. “You’ve re-inspired me. Rock and roll is back!”
