Thick in the punk scene since ’89, Sans Sobriety made up of Rodg [bass], Mick [guitar], both childhood friends from North Carolina and Matt Lenihan [drums], know how to get the crowd kicking and jumping in Sacramento, CA.
When I first put “GarageForLife” in my CD player, I had no idea what to expect. At first listen, Sans’ album exudes the standard run-of-the-mill gang-vocal punk rock you can hear at any local dive bar venue where beer-drinking fans can be found lifting their feet in the air, two at a time, protruding great energy. Sans Sobriety enables different musical tastes within their music such as blues and metal, offering a more hard-core nature.
Sans Sobriety is currently working on their next album due to hit the streets fall ’07. This will be their first album in nearly eight years.
“GarageForLife” is a very well made Indie E.P. Improvement in versatility and lyricism may be required yet Sans Sobriety makes up in style, energy and maturity. Learn more at http://www.sanssobriety.com.
