Watch “You’re Going Down” Video here.

Sick Puppies’ have just released a new video for their hit single “You’re Going Down,” which also served as the theme for WWE’s Extreme Rules PPV broadcast last month. The band decided to take a less predictable route to back the popular fight anthem. The video involves kids, neighborhood bullies, and a massive water balloon fight that takes place in a pristine suburban setting. The video can be seen now on CWG TV and will make its television premiere on MTV2 and MTVu’s Unleashed Tuesday, August 11. The lead single “You’re Going Down,” continues to gain momentum at radio charting Top 15 at Modern, Top 10 at Active Rock, and Top 30 at Rock formats.

Sick Puppies will hit the road with Shinedown this fall in support of their recent release, Tri-Polar, which was released on July 14 on RMR/Virgin Records/EMI Music. The tour will kick off in Madison, WI on September 14 at The Orpheum Theater and will include stops in Seattle, San Francisco, Dallas, and Nashville.

Sick Puppies’ newest release, “Tri-Polar,” has all of the usual characteristics found in most contemporary hard-rock albums: it’s loud, angry, and simple. But what places Sick Puppies a cut above the herd lies within the melodic range of Shimon Moore. Although his lyrical content never strays far from the banal exasperation of failed relationships, he does so in a fashion that is anything but boring and simple. He’s able to come at you with an edgy ferociousness on tracks like “Street Fighter (War)” and “You’re Going down” and still know how to tone down and showcase his amazing harmonies on “Odd One” and “Maybe.”

With that said, “Tri-Polar” is an aggressive album. The guitars are thick and distorted, the bass is heavy and present, the drums are deep and punchy. The songs are short and to-the-point, and with the exception of the final track “White Balloons” (a dynamic song that begins with a soothing acoustic guitar riff and eventually opens up into a powerful rock anthem), the band never really ventures outside of the four-to-the-floor feel that most hard-fans come to expect.

The bass on this album kicked ass! As one-third of the modern rock trio Sick Puppies, Anzai, along with drummer Mark Goodwin and guitarist/vocalist Shimon Moore, Emma Anzai has proven that she can hang with the boys, and the band has shown that it can contend with mainstream music.

Tri-Polar shows that the band still has plenty of room to grow and make their own niche in an overly crowded music scene, but with the album already reaching 31 on the Billboard 200, expect to hear plenty more from these guys (and girl) in the years to come.
