New release from: SERGEANT STEEL – Mister Sippi (June 30, 2023)

Austria’s hard rock band #1 is back!

The hard rockers SERGEANT STEEL, founded in 2007, are back with the new album Mister Sippi. The fifth studio album by Austria’s Hard Rock band #1 will be released on June 30th, 2023 and is the successor to their yet most successful album Truck Tales from 2020. SERGEANT STEEL has always worked with different influences for their interpretation of Hard Rock. Inspired by the Sunset Strip scene like GUNS N’ ROSES, RATT and other stadium rock heroes of the 80s such as early BON JOVI, CINDERELLA or WHITESNAKE combined with the music by legends like AEROSMITH, RAINBOW and JUDAS PRIEST.

In recent years new influences such as LYNYRD SKYNYRD and MOLLY HATCHET have been added. SERGEANT STEEL literally got to the bottom of the matter. A road trip led from Memphis, TN via Clarksdale, MI (“Devil’s Crossroads“) to New Orleans, LA. Two key songs for the new album (“Down To Mississippi“, “Mama Didn’t Raise No Fool”) were created, which are dedicated to the US American south and its music culture in a SERGEANT STEEL way. The album title Mister Sippi once again illustrates the sextet’s special sense of humour and love of wordplay.

The band has worked with top-notch people of the music over the years. These include e.g. Beau Hill (Ratt, Alice Cooper, Europe, …), Peter Mew from Abbey Road Studios (The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, …), singer Mark Slaughter (Slaughter) and guitar hero Kane Roberts (Alice Cooper). In particular, legendary producer Michael Wagener who worked with Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Skid Row, Dokken, White Lion, Accept, Bonfire and many more, helped to shape the band’s sound. After almost a decade under the wing of the German-American, the formation is now responsible for mix and mastering in addition to production. Wagener himself, now in well-deserved retirement, is quite taken with the new material from his former protégés.

The CD also includes a bonus track, the unplugged version of “Cry Out Your Heart, Baby!” taken from the Men On A Mission album, and shows one more side of the band. Mister Sippi is the melting pot of the well-known SERGEANT STEEL elements with their new influences and produces 10 new hits that are screaming for the stages of this world!
