Sick Puppies began in 1997 in Australia at Mosman High School, that’s where lead singer/guitarist Shimon Moore and bassist/backing vocals Emma Anzai met. They accidentally double booked a room to practice their music in; which started an argument that ended up being the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Moore and Anzai realized that they liked a lot of the same music, especially the Australian band, Silverchair. The two of them decided to play cover songs from the bands that they both loved and then eventually parted ways with playtime covers and into more serious game time original works. Next, they brought on Chris Mileski to play drums and Sick Puppies was on their way to rock and roll stardom.
Moore and Anzai decided to take a big jump, moving from Australia to LA in order to take their music to the next level. But Chris Mileski did not join them, so the first thing on their agenda in LA was to find another drummer. They placed a Craigslist as, and shortly after Mark Goodwin joined.
Sick Puppies recently released their third single, ‘Die To Save You’, from their third major studio album, Connect via Capitol Records. A video has also been released which was made in black and white. The video showcases the band at their best, playing live and connecting with their fans. It would make any fan want to buy tickets for their summer tour with Three Days Grace.
Sick Puppies have quite a few great hit singles such as ‘You’re Going Down’, ‘Riptide’, ‘Die To Save You’ and ‘Gunfight’. Go check them out and try to see them on tour this summer. You don’t want to miss them!
