Saints And Sinners
Saints and Sinners is the brand new album.
Beginning with the raucous title track, SAINTS AND SINNERS continues in
the spirit of that dual mindset as the Dubs mix free-wheeling party
rockers like HOWAYA GIRLS and the vocal harmony-laden jam BACKSEAT DRIVER with anthemic and politically charged tunes like the 80s vibing
THIS TIME. While THIS TIME taps into the raw frustration of the past
eight years, the band saves its most biting commentary for the U.N.s
inaction on giving aid to ravaged places like Darfur and not adequately
addressing global poverty on the acoustic ballad IN THE END. The moody
rocker BUY YOU A LIFE is a plea for people to look beyond themselves
and, as Roberts puts it, "look out for each other during difficult
The hypnotic, mid-tempo pop rocker MY TOWN was written before the
recent presidential election, from the perspective of a small towns
working men who had previously given up hope for better economic
circumstances, but who are now optimistic that their social situation
On the more personal side, I DONT THINK I'LL LOVE ANYMORE, whose second verse is sung by Dead Rock West lead singer Cindy Wasserman, is a gently swaying traditional ballad about the consequences of poor communication in a relationship. These heavier themes are
balanced by tongue in cheek tracks like the densely percussive,
supercharged ROSIE, about a guy trying to sell his girl on the idea
that marriage is overrated (and expensive!!).
The explosive instrumental rocker SAOIRSE, featuring guest artist,
blues rock great Kenny Wayne Shepherd, is a clarion call from the Dubs
that defines their longtime mission as American and Celtic rock
ambassadors. The title means freedom in Gaelic, Roberts says, and
to us, that means we have the liberty to take this style of music and
push and pull it in every direction. The vibe of the song goes from
Irish to rock back to Irish and rock again, with Kenny's blistering
blues on top of it. ''We've always defied pigeonholing because our sound
is the result of Irish and American guys coming together and drawing
from a little of everything.''
