Main Man Records has just released the self-titled debut album from CHROME DADDY, the late '90s project formed by Shawn Mars (vocals, guitar) and Keith Roth (bass) and featuring Damian Cordisco on drums and SKID ROW's Scotti Hill on guitar.
According to a press release, "CHROME DADDY was a band that surfaced out of friendship and blasted into the stratosphere of the Jersey hard rock universe. Enlisting the ever capable drumming skills of Cordisco and the six-string talents of Hill, Mars and Roth seized downtime opportunity to blaze rock and roll trails of Marshall-fueled brilliance, melding influential commonalities from bands such as SWEET, DAVID BOWIE, T.REX, CHEAP TRICK and KISS and their love for all things 1970s into some of the decade's most underrated rock and roll to date.
"This rare release is a detailed story of that passionate effort. A musical journey comprised of standout individuals that teamed up to lay down a lifetime of skill in the briefest of timelines. The music you'll hear was birthed from the raw intensity of demos that came from the soul before growing and evolving into an even larger body of work for the consideration of one of rock and roll's biggest managers. In a time when the music business was shifting from the sound of the Sunset Strip to the grungy feedback drenched cries of the great Northwest, this foursome saw an extremely original opportunity to head down new and inspiring paths of direction."
CHROME DADDY is said to be in talks about doing some U.S. shows with labelmates LORDS OF MERCY as well as going in the studio to record a follow-up album.
