Rockshots Records: SANDNESS New Single ‘Alive & Kickin’
New EP “Enter Please” Out August 21st
Hard Rock Band SANDNESS has unleashed the new single ‘Alive & Kickin’ off their new EP “Enter Please” due out August 21st via Rockshots Records.
The band comments:
“Alive & Kickin’ was the first song that we wrote after the release of our third album and we liked it so much we decided to release immediately instead of waiting for the rest of the tracks for the fourth album to be ready (yes, we are working on it!). With this song we decided to experiment a little with the sound of the synth, using it as the main riff. The lyrics talk about a very passionate love story and the melody is one of those that can get stuck in your head for days. In our eyes, this song is like the missing link between London and the love power ballad that we haven’t written yet”
About the six-track EP adds:
“‘Enter Please’ is in some way a follow-up of our third album ‘Untamed’. The new track ‘Alive & Kickin’ is a melodic rock song with a catchy synth riff – it’s a “rock club dancefloor” kind of song. Then we have our personal version of two well known 70’s rock songs, ‘Get It On’ by T-Rex and ‘Saturday Night’s Alright’ by Elton John; our intent is to show how music from the past can still be relevant and make you have a good time in the present. The second half of the EP is a live version of three songs from our album Untamed – we want people to know what a Sandness live concert sounds like”
“Enter Please” will be released on August 21st via Rockshots Records.

Rockshots Records: SANDNESS Release New Music Video “Tyger Bite” + New Album “Untamed” Out June 2019
New Album “Untamed” Out June 14th via Rockshots Records
Italian classic 80’s hair metal inspired band SANDNESS have released their new music video “Tyger Bite” in support of their third studio album “Untamed” due out on June 14, 2019 via Rockshots Records. The album features a completely renewed and modern sound of eleven new catchy and sleazy songs to add to the band’s catalog from their two previous releases on Sleazy Rider Records 2016’s “Higher & Higher” and 2013’s “Like An Addiction”.
Vocalist/guitarist Robby Luckets comments:
“‘Untamed’ is a very melodic hard and heavy album. The people who are acquainted with our sound and that are waiting for our comeback won’t be disappointed. At the same time, this album can also be appreciated by people who have never heard our music or specific genre. We tried to keep a sound with more variety and add catchier, more modern songs mixed with heavier and sleazier ones. We also think that this album shows how much we have grown as musicians and as a band, even though we are sure there’s plenty more to learn and to explore.”
And bassist Mark Denkley adds:
“If you compare this album to the previous one, one of the first things you notice is that Untamed is more straightforward, shorter and more lighthearted: the main thing we want is for people to have fun when they listen to it. Most of the lyrics are about partying and enjoying life in general. However, you will still find some songs with a deeper meaning. We have one against bullying, one about finding the strength to fight back when life gives you lemons, and one about keeping the good rock’n’roll spirit alive through the younger generations.”
SANDNESS has also taken their twist on 80’s inspired hard and heavy metal across Europe with multiple tours and festivals in Latvia, France, Slovakia, Austria, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Belgium and the Netherlands along with sharing the stage with acts such as Tygers Of Pan Tang, Reckless Love, Hell In The Club, L.A. Guns, Adam Bomb and more.
