ROCK band Saints of Sin will play a headline show at The Old Fire Station in Bournemouth.

They will take to the stage on on Friday, February 21 for their biggest gig to date.

Last year saw this local band launch their self-titled album to great popular and critical acclaim.

They also received national radio airplay on Kerrang!, PlanetRock and BBC Radio 2; and ended the year with a series of UK tours which took them as far as Glasgow and Edinburgh supporting American super group Lost Angels and then Midnite City.

Rui Brito is Saints Of Sin's lead singer. His irrepressible stage presence and audience banter, along with dynamic vocals, is one of the hallmarks of the band's performance.

He said: "We're all totally psyched to be doing this gig. Having been playing all over the place last year, it's really exciting that our first gig of 2020 and our biggest ever headliner is in our hometown of Bournemouth. The Old Fire Station is an awesome venue - we reckon we're in for an amazing gig!"

With the release of their brand new album, Saints Of Sin have shaken up the formula and focused on creating a far more unique and distinctive sound than previous works.

It's rock - but not as you know it! - fusing hints of pop and R&B with a multitude of influences from rock's many subgenres. In addition to Rui's powerful vocals, it features Marcus 'Sparxx' Jenkins whose melodic lead guitar and song writing skills make such a huge contribution to the band's sound along with the groove-laden rhythm section of Ash Jenkins on bass and Josh Rose on drums.

The latter three were at Highcliffe School together whilst Josh and Rui met at university. A typical set mostly features their own original songs but with a smattering of covers including versions of chart-topping pop tracks as you've never heard them before!

In 2020 the band will be playing some of the biggest music festivals in the area such as Teddy Rocks and Love Rocks as well as a number of great UK rock festivals like Gravity in Cannock and Hard Rock Hell. They are also in the planning stages of their first gigs in Europe and USA. Watch out Portugal and America - they're on their way!
