29th September 2019

Sanguine, the incendiary, eclectic, and utterly unique female-fronted alt/rock/Metal quartet will release their landmark third album, 'Cold Blood', on Odyssey Music on December 6th and today, the new video for the first single from the album, 'Ignite', is premiering here on MetalTalk.

'Cold Blood' is the follow-up to 2016s massively acclaimed 'Black Sheep' album and is a markedly more melody drenched offering than its awesome predecessor, yet still exudes the aggressive, hard hitting, heavy energy that Sanguine have become so well known for. Here's 'Ignite'



'Black Sheep' went down so well with the press and fellow musicians that Sanguine were subsequently invited on tour across the UK and Europe with a number of notable acts including Fear Factory, Skindred, Hell Yeah, Zebrahead and Mushroom Head, building a huge army of followers along the way. The many months of touring allowed Sanguine to refine what they do to a fine art and 'Cold Blood' is more than testament to that.

The album's title is a nod to the rise in mental health problems and apparent increase in the suicides of Sanguine's musical idols. Guitarist Nick Magee tells us:

"When we were writing 'Cold Blood' multiple rock legends killed themselves and it felt like the industry was just a coldblooded environment to exist in. That's part of the reason we hid ourselves away so we could focus on what made us happy rather than trying to jump through hoops to please some record exec!"



'Cold Blood', which is a generally more cohesive body of work than 'Black Sheep', was recorded and produced by Sanguine in the UK at various studios and locations, including Middle Farm Studios, where the drums were put down, and Sanguine HQ.

After Sanguine released their self-titled, debut album in 2012, which was shoestring produced and mostly comprised of demos, they began building their formidable reputation for explosive live shows whilst supporting bands such as Megadeth and Cancer Bats and playing at Festivals like Download and Bloodstock.



Vocalist Tarin Kerrey was subsequently invited to do backing vocals for Iron Maiden's Adrian Smith and SikTh's Mikee Goodman's side project 'Primal Rock Rebellion'. By the time that they began recording 'Black Sheep' Sanguine had signed to Berlin based publishing and management company Manta Ray Music, who provided the backing and funding for what was, in reality, the band's first full-length studio album.

The future now looks more than stellar for Sanguine, an exceptional, vital, organic spine-tingling outfit whose consummate third album 'Cold Blood' can only catapult them even higher into rock's heady stratosphere.
