SISTERS Unleash Sonic Fury with 'Leecheater': A Raw Journey Through Heavy Rock Realms

SISTERS, the brainchild of Jason Blackmore (Molly McGuire) and Mario Quintero (Spotlights), has been making waves with their latest release, "Leecheater," a visceral exploration of heavy, atmospheric rock that defies conventional boundaries. With tracks like "Black Stars" and "Leecheater," the duo plunges listeners into a sonic realm where raw power meets intricate melody.

"Black Stars," the latest single from SISTERS, is a sonic whirlwind that melds the stoner-rock swagger of Kyuss with the industrial grit of White Zombie. The accompanying video, premiered on REVOLVER, offers a psychedelic journey that perfectly mirrors the track's bleary intensity.

The heart of "Leecheater" lies in its uncompromising soundscapes. From the thunderous guitar riffs to the driving rhythms and haunting vocals, each track envelops the listener in a whirlwind of sound. Jason Blackmore's distinctive voice cuts through the dense atmosphere, while Mario Quintero's masterful drumming adds depth and urgency to every beat.

Drawing inspiration from their respective musical journeys, Blackmore and Quintero have crafted an album that pays homage to their roots while venturing into uncharted territory. With influences ranging from post-punk pioneers like Molly McGuire to the atmospheric landscapes of Spotlights, SISTERS brings together the best elements of both worlds to create something truly unique.

"Leecheater" is more than just an album—it's a testament to the enduring power of collaboration and creativity. Recorded live over two sessions at Quintero's home studio in Pittsburgh, the album captures the raw energy and spontaneity of SISTERS' live performances.

The result is a collection of songs that are as emotionally resonant as they are sonically adventurous. From the blistering intensity of "Born Again" to the introspective depths of "Feet on the Ground," each track offers a glimpse into the complex inner world of SISTERS.

As the band prepares to embark on a series of live dates starting on the West Coast in the Fall, anticipation is high for what promises to be an electrifying experience. With "Leecheater," SISTERS has firmly established themselves as one of the most exciting and innovative bands in the contemporary rock scene.

In a musical landscape dominated by formulaic trends and superficiality, SISTERS stands out as a beacon of authenticity and originality. With their fearless exploration of sound and emotion, they remind us of the transformative power of music—and the limitless possibilities that lie beyond the confines of genre and convention.
