BULLETBOYLESS
3/4 of the original BulletBoys (sans the singer) launch new group Lies, Deceit & Treachery

Los Angeles — Hard as a rock and ready to rock. Lies, Deceit & Treachery are on the books with a debut gig in the city of sin and it’s just around the corner. The Los Angeles based band is made up of 3 original and former (founding) BulletBoys members Mick Sweda (guitar), Lonnie Vencent (bass) and Jimmy D’Anda (drums). The guys have recruited Shane Tassart as their singer.

Ironic or not, but the bands name was quoted by BulletBoys singer Marq Torien exactly 1 year ago this week. Back on December 18th 2013 Torien took to social networks and stated: “The music business is Bullshit! Nothing changes, just the same ol F#9! Lies, deceit and treachery.” The singer continued with; “I love to be lied to. Especially from the ones you trust the most!”

Back to LDT, according to some recent updates via the band’s official facebook - they are killing it in rehearsals. The band uploaded snippets from studio that include “Hard As A Rock” and “Hell On My Heels.”

Sweda and Vencent along with Torien were part of the King Kobra revolving door back in the late 80’s. But that group eventually ran it’s course and the 3 started the BulletBoys brand with D’Anda on drums. They played a handful of Hollywood local shows and soon enough were snatched up by Warner Brothers Records. What followed was some solid success with 3 albums and scoring a big hit with “Smooth Up.” Torien has continued to tour with Bulletboys.

Lies, Deceit & Treachery is set to play Las Vegas at “Vamp’d” in early January 2015. See flyer below.

This isn't Marq though but the guy sounds like him from 1988. Very interested in this one!

If anything you got to think these names out. I mean "Lies, Deceit, Treachery" isn't even a good acronym, LDT.

 

I mean c'mon! If you just swapped the Deceit and Treachery:

 

Lies, Treachery and Deceit or LTD.

 

Boom infinitely better.

 

Just like that damned Pink Velvet Krush band. Guys spell Krush with a "C" and you can acronym yourself "PVC".

 

You got to always be thinking of marketing and T-Shirt sales kids OK, its music 101.

I know you hate them but I still love the first three albums and half of Acid Monkey. The rest is bad and Marq certainly is a wank either way. But the music, I like :)

A lot of people don't like ZaZa but I thought it was killer. The opening track is a ball buster!

The debut and 'Zaza' are great, imo. Especially the debut.

I think I've never heard anything past Zaza. A few tracks from Sophie that I heard were horrible.

It's humourous that those first few yelps sound exactly like Marq, then when the singing starts the voice is totally different. I can only take that as an intentional slap to Marq.

    • I know, I know. We all know the answer but still I have to ask: So what happened to the "Cessation of Touring Contract" by the Crue?
    • Whoah... much better than I expected before clicking on them. Reminds me vocally of a lighter version of Lizzy Borden crossed with Rob Moratti. I'm going to have to track this one down.
    • from various internet sources: TYGERS OF PAN TANG will release their new album, “Ritual”, next Friday, while this Japanese edition including a bonus track appeared today. This is the band’s second recording by the current Tygers lineup, recorded with the help of renowned Søren Andersen, most recently known for his role as Glenn Hughes’s guitarist. Mastering done by Harry Hess (Harem Scarem). Tygers Of Pan Tang is a legendary band with some legendary albums, but I’m dare to say “Ritual” is one of their best. There’s a classic melodic hard rock feel all over the record, with some irresistible riffing, powerful grooves and catchy choruses. The mastermind here is original member, guitarist Robb Weir. The band’s current phase proves as formidable as its heyday, with longtime drummer Craig Ellis, vocalist Jacopo Meille, bassist Gavin Gray and guitarist Micky Crystal. “Ritual” wastes no time in stampeding the listener with the bursting “Worlds Apart,” one of the heaviest tunes on the album. Fair warning though – the straight forward chorus can stick in your mind for weeks, like a modern day version of “Gangland.” This isn’t the only instance on “Ritual,” this is an album chock full of hook laden rockers. “Destiny” slides in and the ride continues with a soulful voice. The pounding percussion is back and the riff are melodic, precise. The lyrics are thoughtful, and well written, and do tell a story, unlike many of these so-called hits of today in those other genres that just repeat over and over again. Slipping into the triple-twist of the steam train you’re on, comes, “Rescue Me“. There’s a simple riff and hook that becomes infectious, and still has you in its clutches. The vocals, clear and understandable, will have you singing along before you realize you’re doing it. The track that will “Raise Some Hell” is definitely the hidden gem on the record. This has got to be a live track used to get the crowd worked into a frenzy. Fast-paced, and rockin’ as hell. Screaming vocals, a rocket train paced guitar, and drums to match. If this song doesn’t get you off your backside and have your fist-pounding, then shut off the record and go back to your BackStreet Boys, because you’re listening to the wrong music! As this roller coaster continues, you reach the point where you just don’t wanna get off yet, and hope the rest is just as exciting. Luckily, you would be right. “Spoils Of War” might be the most melodic song of the bunch, but this midtempo still rocks hard and the solo kills. Masterfully played track. After a few more thrills, and twists, you know the ride is gaining its way to the final gate, but don’t take the safety bar off just yet. “The Art Of Noise” has yet another trick that will have you raising your fists into the air, and trying to catch your breath once again. Hang on, because you still have to “Sail On” until the end. Maybe not the most exciting part of this ride, but still an effective end. Clear concise vocals and equally as good playing from the rest of the Tygers are ever-present here. So sit back, and enjoy this last bit of this “Ritual” and to hell with keeping your arms and legs inside the ride at all times. “Ritual” may be the bast sounding Tygers album since 1981’s Spellbound, but don’t take me wrong, it’s still a fresh new album that stands on its own. You couldn’t ask for a more beautifully produced album. Presenting a top notch mix and crystal clear recording, the use of modern technology pays homage to the band’s legacy without succumbing to a thin lifeless sound. And songwriting is just as strong, as each musician performance. One of the best classic rock / traditional hard / melodic albums of the year. Raise those fists, and enjoy. Highly Recommended Tracklist: 01 – Worlds Apart 02 – Destiny 03 – Rescue Me 04 – Raise Some Hell 05 – Spoils of War 06 – White Lines 07 – Words Cut Like Knives 08 – Damn You! 09 – Love Will Find a Way 10 – Art of Noise 11 – Sail On JAPAN BONUS TRACK: 12 – Don’t Touch Me There (2019 Version) Robb Weir – Guitars Craig Ellis – Drums Jack Meille – Vocals Gavin Gray – Bass Micky Crystal – Guitars   BUY IT www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/MICP-11527    
    • Well, I can't wait for it.
    • I won't as long as my mom is taking me down there! I know they're great still- this will be my first concert though 😋
    • Don't miss it. They're still amazing live. 
    • Is he really more and more in demand? Or is it simply signing with Frontiers means he is producing?
