You hear it again and again.
When one door closes, another one opens. However, it’s true - especially in the case of Sick Puppies. In the Fall of 2014, Emma Anzai [bass, vocals] and Mark Goodwin [drums] parted ways with their guitarist and vocalist. Weathering and persevering through this potentially life-changing event, the gold-selling, chart-topping Los Angeles-based and Australian-bred hard rock outfit knew one thing.
They were going to make more music as Sick Puppies.
“There was no question” affirms Emma. “We had no doubt that we wanted to continue. Mark and I got together and basically said, ‘first and foremost, we love music. We love this band and our fans, and we have put so much into it, and we are not done and want to take it further.’ In order to do that, we needed to find the right member.”
Instead, the “right member” found them. With stints in several bands under his belt, Texas-born singer and guitarist Bryan Scott reached out to Emma via Facebook within days of the announcement. He sent her a video of himself performing, and she swiftly replied.
“Both Mark and I knew he was the guy right away - he was cool and he sounded great. It was a natural progression. We were totally on to something” said Emma
“Something just overwhelmed me,” admits Bryan. “I had a feeling that I needed to reach out. They needed a singer and guitarist and that’s what I am. I had always loved their music and as soon as I saw the post, I went home and immediately sent Emma a
message. We clicked right off the bat. Music is in their blood - it’s who they are. They live and breathe it every day. I’m the same way.”

"I remember a time when music had soul, music had a conscience and music had balls...man." - Bill Hicks ---- KING RAT ---- There is no whining in this band. There are no victims in this band. There is no sheepish shrugging when the time comes to take responsibility for choices and actions. Rather than make excuses and sob at life's misfortunes, King Rat hurls back with tunes that hit hard and fast into the target's face. The band is fueled by authentic punk rock do-it-yourself rebellion. They have developed an outspoken identity of self-reliance and literary blue collar grit. This is a band influenced by the old school: singing from the gut, thinking with the heart, and gnashing with the teeth. They chew through the modern mire of sonic litter and offer a soundtrack for people who are engaged in facing and beating the shit out of their demons. King Rat does not rely on the opinions of television and newspapers to sway their decisions. They have fought through loss and created their own identity that forbids them from fleeing to suburbia to wait for death. King Rat started out by adhering to the original notion of punk independence. Musical trends come and go. Punk rock was once a vehicle for voicing personal or political outrage and social defiance. It has digressed into an umbrella sheltering a horde of spoiled boy bands whining with tattoos and guitars. These imposters promote collective misery under the guise of being rebels. King Rat has never, nor will ever bastardize the purity of their roots by acting like children when the battle requires them to fight like men. They are going to do it their way sweating, swaggering, staggering and bleeding. King Rat is no stranger to the scene, having self-produced six studio albums and toured the U.S. many times. The latest effort, entitled EVERYTHING BURNS, is now available on Amazon.com and iTunes via Fivecore Records.. Of the hundreds of gigs they've played, the most notable have been with Bad Brains, X, Pennywise, Screeching Weasel, Bad Religion, The Adicts, Alkaline Trio, U.S. Bombs, Supersuckers, Rancid, H2O, Bad Religion, ALL, U.K. Subs and the Lunachicks...to name a few.
We are No Bueno! We rock 99.9% of the time! We play catchy, sing along punk rock songs! We like to drink a few drinks and play the most entertaining shows this side of the border!
