Get Hip is pleased to announce the release of Sonny Vincent & Spite’s crushing new album Spiteful, a Punk Rock’n'Roll masterpiece three years in the making – out soon on ULTRAMAFIC Records.
Sonny Vincent (Testors) joins forces with Spite - his most explosive and prolific backing band to date – featuring legendary punk rockers Rat Scabies (The Damned), Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols), and Steve Mackay (Stooges). The resulting album is nothing short of incendiary: Fourteen blistering tracks of gut-wrenching, no-nonsense rock’n'roll. What more can you ask for?! How about a killer Making Of video featuring clips of the scintillating new tracks? (That’s what we thought.)
It’s been just a few weeks since the release of Sonny Vincent & Spite’s thrilling debut album Spiteful, and the reviews are pouring in. What exactly do the critics have to say for themselves?
Raw, energetic, and stylistically varied punk rock
The Vinyl District
Honest, powerful, rounded
Sonny Vincent delivers and does so with heat and vicious lyricism
Plenty of heart and spirit, as well as throbbing, yelping rock’n'roll
It’s got a few absolute killers that are worth diving in for
