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.

"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," said Bobby.
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."

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."
