Holland's Mascot Records has set a September 13 European release date for the sophomore album from BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION, entitled "Runaway Brides". The CD is due in the U.S. on September 27 via Shrapnel Records.
The follow-up to last year's "Here Come the Brides", "Runaway Brides" was recorded in part at a studio in Malibu, California with producer Andy Johns, who has previously worked with guitarist Tracii Guns on the L.A. GUNS' "Waking the Dead" album (which Guns has referred to as "my favorite L.A. GUNS record."). Johns was reportedly involved with the album during its early recording stages but ended up leaving the project due to unspecified differences with Guns and the rest of the band.
Commented Guns: "This is the record we always wanted to make. It has a great blend of modern rock heaviness with retro sounds and styles. It is the perfect BRIDES record of today."
"Runaway Brides" final track listing:
01. Aunt Biente
02. Lords of the Mind
03. Deadman's Ruin
05. This Time Around
06. White Trash
08. Never Say Never
09. Blown Away
