Self-Inflicted Wounds

by 8 Lives Spent

After their first year together, this Virginia based crew has given a rebirth to raw, power chord-based roots rock-n-roll long lost in the vaults of 70's/80's styling. This is blue-collar straight up rock that forces you to move.

Album Notes
8 Lives Spent can be described as a high-energy, blue-collar, roots rock and roll band with a good time feel. They mix up individual styles into unique originals that range in style from a "heavy ZZ-Top" to the melodic drive of Metallica. Throw in a lead style reminiscent of Slash and you'll have a good idea what 8LS is all about. They firmly stand on the ideology that people that lay down good money to hear a band should walk away with a memorable experience and with that they thrive to be the hosts of the party.
8 Lives Spent was founded by drummer Brian Holt who formerly played in the short-lived northern Virginia group "Rabid Granny". When that group disbanded in the early summer months of 2007, Brian kept in contact with another former RG member, bassist Joe Jones, and they in turn linked up with former "Off the Cuff" guitarist and vocalist Brandy James who introduced his own unique style of rock with a dash of funk. The three immediately began building on the chemistry while discussing the overall state of music today. They agreed that, for the most part, music had become somewhat stagnant and concluded that what the world needed was a rebirth of old-school rock-n-roll. This is the type of stuff that you jammed to at field parties, small rock clubs, etc. during a time when rock took center stage in places all across the country. It was a time when entire city blocks were devoted to live music, and it was a time that people went out to see a band to briefly forget about the cares of the world. That is precisely the goal of 8 Lives Spent, to be remembered for generating a good time atmosphere where all the world's problems can be tucked away for a few hours.
With a game plan in place the band took off and recruited guitarist Rob Saville to its ranks in September of 2007. Rob immediately worked into the lineup both in style and chemistry. Self-Inflicted Wounds is a compilation of those individual styles that make this band truly unique for this day and age.
