About Sick Puppies
The Australian-based hard
rock band Sick Puppies was formed in 1997 by vocalist and lead guitarist Shimon Moore and bassist Emma Anzai, with drummer
Chris Mileski later joining them. The band members worked odd jobs to fund the production of their first EP "Dog's Breakfast,"
and it was finally released in 1999. By 2000, the band had entered the Triple J Unearthed competition. With their song "Nothing
Really Matters," the Sick Puppies managed to win in the Sydney region, alongside another band. Their demo caught the attention
of Paul Stepanek Management, and they were later signed. Once the Sick Puppies had the backing of a record label, they were
able to release their full-length album, "Welcome to the Real World." Unfortunately, the record label they were signed to
went under and their drummer had left the band. The Sick Puppies moved to Los Angeles shortly after with the hopes of getting
a fresh start. They recruited their new drummer, Mark Goodwin, from Craigslist and began working on new material.
2007, the Sick Puppies were able to release their first album on a major label, "Dressed Up As Life," which produced the hit
song "All the Same." The single peaked at the number 8 position on the U.S. Modern Rock chart and went viral after being featured
in the "Free Hugs Campaign." The band scored another hit with their single, "My World," which hit the number 20 position on
the charts. That following year, the Sick Puppies returned to the studio to start recording their next album, "Tri-Polar."
"Tri-Polar" was released in 2009, and featured many hits, including "War," "You're Going Down," and "Odd One."
many successful hits, the Sick Puppies have also gone on to win a variety of awards, including the YouTube Video of the Year,
Yahoo! Music's "Who's Next" Award, BMI Pop Award, and Bandit Rock Awards International Breakthrough Award. These rockers have
proven that they're here to stay, and they're not just another band on the scene.
Sick Puppies' Breakthrough
It appears that their move to Los Angeles paid off, because the Sick Puppies' career took off once they released
their first major studio album, "Dressed Up As Life." The band gained more exposure when their song was used for the "Free
Hugs Campaign," which introduced their music to millions across the Internet. Their album "Tri-Polar" was even more successful,
spawning successful hits like "You're Going Down," "Maybe," "Riptide," and "Odd One." The album itself debuted at number 31
on the Billboard 200, and the singles also fared well on the charts.

knowing that it would be just the thing to kick start their careers.
