Rockshots Records re-signs Sandness for next album “Play Your Part” coming spring 2022

Italian classic 80’s hair metal inspired band Sandness has re-signed with Rockshots Records for the release of their fourth studio album “Play The Part” this coming Spring 2022. The album follows their two previous records released on Rockshots Records, 2020 EP “Enter Please (2020) and 2019 LP “Untamed”.

The new album is produced, mixed and mastered by Michele Guaitoli and will feature twelve original tracks including a bonus cover version of KISS’ “Turn On The Night”.

““Play Your Part” is a different kind of animal from our previous releases, due to the lockdown, we had more time to think and work on the songs. We also worked a lot more with our producer Michele, who helped us bring our music to the next level. The new album is more mature and inspired by different styles: hard rock, classic rock, heavy metal, 70’s rock n’roll, but also pop music from different decades.” 

Since their first independent release in 2010, Sandness has toured Europe multiple times, playing small venues and festivals in Latvia, France, Slovakia, Austria, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Belgium, Netherlands and Croatia. Over the years, the band shared the stage with renowned musicians such as Adam Bomb, L.A. Guns, Tygers Of Pan Tang, Reckless Love, Nazareth and Lita Ford.
