Album Spotlight : Nine Lies - 9Lies

Nine Lies are an Alternative Rock Band from Belfast in Northern Ireland, consisting of Stevie Mann (Lyrics/Vocals/Production), Dave Kernohan & Nick Black (Guitars), John Rossi (Bass) and Stephen McAuley [Stoogie] (Drums).
Nine Lies have had incredible success since their inception, realizing milestones that most unsigned bands can only dream of.
Interesting facts about Nine Lies:
• Nine Lies Bassist John Rossi started his career in a little known band called Snow Patrol.
• Lead Singer Stevie Mann is the second Cousin of Singer/Song Writer Damien Rice.
• Nine Lies Recorded the B Side to 'Someone' with Legendary Producer Stuart Epps (Oasis/Robbie Williams/Elton John), but in an odd move produced the A side themselves.
Stevie Mann said "It’s been a long time coming. We have had stacks of EPs and singles as you know, but this is our first actual album since Behind It All and we are super excited. It’s an eclectic collection of tunes with themes I couldn’t even have dreamt of writing about or seeing if it hadn’t been for the past few years touring.

From the get go with 'Take Me Away' with its Epic, moody intro followed by deep dark guitars and mystical dark male vocal, you know this is going to be a serious album.

It doesn't just deal in stories of the heart or negativity, far from it, with tracks such as 'We R1' which has a positive "WE CAN DO IT!" vibe. It’s essentially a Driving Guitar Indie rock song, with pounding drums, big riffs and a great storyline taking you on a road trip from A to B with a let's get together and do this theme. Hot smokin' guitars, fierce vocals -- Save the World is the goal here. Nascar, racing, hot cars, endurance tests, action movies.

Then you are taken to the underworld of twisted double agents with the awesome "A Kill for the king" It is an Epic, James Bond 007 esc dramatic rock tune, almost orchestral feeling song about deceit, pressure, eerie and tense life undercover in a twisted under world. This album has it all from the anger of breakup in 'Damn' to the lust of the rebound in 'Nothing left for Me'.

9Lies is out now.
