Boots Electric is the alter ego of guitarist and vocalist Jesse "The Devil" Hughes, who formed the eclectic garage rock duo Eagles of Death Metal along with longtime friend and Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme in 2008. The Greenville, South Carolina native, who also goes by the name “Fabulous Weapon” and cites Little Richard as one of his biggest influences, is known for his enthusiastic dance moves and unpredictable stage behavior. Honkey Kong, his dancefloor-ready, electro-rock, solo debut under the Boots Electric moniker, was produced by Tony Hoffer (Beck, Depeche Mode) and released in September, 2011 on Dangerbird Records.
Happily married couple Steve and Sam Thill met in a small town in the center of France at the age of 15 and fell fast in love. Eight years later in 2009, the couple started SINNER SINNERS out of their mutual love of rock music and desire to be at each other’s sides throughout all aspects of their musical careers. Since their inception and relocation to Los Angeles, SINNER SINNERS have pushed their forceful punk-influenced rock n’ roll out to the controlled masses, but see 2014 as a figurative launching pad designed to hit the big time.
As with their 2011 release Cardinal Sins, the band enlisted producer Nic Jodoin (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Amusement Park On Fire, The Morlocks), and recorded at the Glory Hole in Hollywood, CA (the previous album also featured production duties from Pascal Mondaz). Interesting fact,SINNER SINNERS recorded with Nic at the same time as Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, actually trading places in the studio throughout the course of the process.
SINNER SINNERS keeps busy outside of the studio as well, boasting recent performances with Black Flag, The Sonics, The Lords of Altamont, The Morlocks, The Creepshow and many more.
