THE BLEEDERS DEBUT ALBUM 'AS SWEET AS SIN' WILL HIT STORES ON APRIL 3RD, 2006

As Sweet As Sin features the new single Nightmares, an adrenalin-infused shot of punk rock'n'roll; as well as the band's raw-knuckled previous hit The Kill; and new versions of the singles Out Of Time and A Bleeding Heart. Along with the single CD version, a limited double-disc edition is also being released with a DVD containing all the music videos and a behind the scenes documentary covering the bands trip to New York and in-the-studio footage.

Recorded at Big Blue Meenie studios in New Jersey late last year, with Sal Villenueva (Thursday, Taking Back Sunday) producing; and mastered at Sterling Sound NYC by George Marino (everyone from Metallica and AC/DC to Arctic Monkeys and The Cure), the album is described by vocalist Angelo Munro as "a long time coming, and a big step forward for the band that points the way to the future".

The Bleeders came together three years ago, and rapidly passed the kind of career milestones that many acts wear as a badge of achievement - an independent EP, residencies in the alternative radio Top Tens followed by a Top 20 single, acclaimed videos, high-profile support slots, and successful national and international tours.  They could have just gone with the flow, and seen what came next.

But, the Bleeders are not "go-with-the-flow" kind of folks, and they don't wait around for something to happen. Right from the beginning, this band was determined to make something happen - and every click on the highway thus far has been about creating that. Now, the next stop along the road has been reached. As Sweet As Sin is thrillingly energetic; possessed of mightily powerful hooks and razor-sharp performances, and characterized by an honesty and integrity which invests the album with a real depth.

The emotional territory covered by As Sweet As Sin will ring familiar to many; and, as the Bleeders' music is primarily about communication, they "lack the sense of exclusivity that confines so many bands to their cliquey pigeonholes… If you buy a Bleeders album [or] go to a show, you're in the gang, no further questions." (Real Groove, Mar 2006).

The album also features stunning original artwork from artist and vintage horror movie aficionado Chris Knox, who shares many of the off-kilter sensibilities which have inspired the Bleeders.
