CALABRESE

Family always forges the strongest bonds. That's certainly the case when it comes to music as well.

Steeped in a hard rock swing, brash punk energy, metallic bombast, and a healthy helping of death rock, these three musicians—Jimmy Calabrese [vocals, bass], Bobby Calabrese [vocals, guitar], and Davey Calabrese [drums]—established a diehard following and garnered immense critical praise outside of the traditional system, emerging as underground luminaries from their native Phoenix, AZ.

Tastemakers from Alternative Press and Guitar World to Metal Hammer, Rue Morgue, Fangoria, and Rock Sound have featured them, while the trio has shared the stage with the likes of Tiger Army, She Wants Revenge, Strung Out, Nekromantix, and more. However, Lust For Sacrilege, sees this D.I.Y. outfit become even more dynamic and deadly.

While supporting Born with a Scorpion's Touch during a West Coast tour, the boys collectively agreed on the direction of what would become Lust For Sacrilege in late 2013.

"We were listening to darker, heavier bands like Mastodon, Danzig, and Black Sabbath, while driving through the mountains of Washington," remembers Jimmy. "There was something about the landscape and the music that reflected a feeling we wanted to pursue. We're from the desert, so the settings of Seattle, Portland, and Salem really inspired us. We decided to get heavier without losing sight of our other inspirations like Roy Orbison and Black Flag."

Bobby goes on, "On the last couple of records, we tried for more of a lo-fi, in-the-garage punk feel. It was time to get evil and explore our dark side."
The title track, Lust For Sacrilege up-tempo bounce bleeds into a resounding refrain that summons The Cult by way of The Misfits.

"Lust For Sacrilege is not so much a lust to destroy religion or anything like that," explains Jimmy. "On a personal note, it's more about breaking what we thought was sacred or we couldn't do. We're breaking down walls and making heavy music, which we haven't done before. The band is going in new directions. It's a special album for us."

As they continue, this band of brothers becomes an even tighter unit on Lust For Sacrilege. "Sometimes, I feel like there's more meaning to what we do because we're family," affirms Jimmy. "We've got this instant chemistry that's irreplaceable. It's what has allowed us to overcome certain trials and tribulations in the business."

Ultimately, Lust For Sacrilege open the gateways into a different realm for newcomers and longtime fans. "I want everybody to listen to it and feel like they're in Calabrese's world," Davey concludes. "Our music should take you some place you've never been before."

Welcome to the family…
