Sick Puppies

With a name like Sick Puppies, you wouldn't think hugs would play a major role in the gutsy indie crew's rise to fame, but they do, along with malls and YouTube. When they met in 1997, singer/lead guitarist Shimon Moore and bassist Emma Anzai were both fans of Silverchair and the Living End plus many of the other angst rock/punk rock bands from their native Australia. Soon Chris Mileski joined on drums and a series of live gigs led to some local recognition and the 1999 EP Dog's Breakfast. Two years later, their song "Nothing Really Matters" won the Unearthed competition, which Australia's Triple J radio network held to find homegrown and undiscovered talent.

Tours across the country followed and an unreleased and aggressive cover version of Destiny's Child's "Say My Name" was soon burning up P2P networks, but when the bandmembers set their sights on America they took a break to plan. They also took days jobs. Moore's was at an outdoor shopping mall, where he would soon meet performance artist Juan Mann, who would carry a "Free Hugs" sign around the mall and oblige anyone who took him up on it. Moore filmed the positive and negative reactions and eventually compiled them, adding the Sick Puppies song "All the Same" as the musical bed. He sent it as video sympathy card when he learned Mann had just lost his grandmother. Mann was touched and posted it to YouTube; by December 2006 the heartwarming video had ten million views.

Meanwhile, the band had landed in America -- with Mileski replaced by new drummer Mark Goodwin -- and worked a deal with the indie label Roadshow, which released a self-titled EP by the band at the end of 2006. Given those ten million video views, it didn't take long for the majors to come calling. Virgin wooed them and released the album Dressed Up as Life in April of 2007, just as the views had reached the 12.5 million mark. Not wanting to let things cool off, the band got back into the studio the following year to being working on a new record. Their third album, Tri-Polar, was released in 2009, and managed to reach number 31 on the U.S. Billboard 200. Sick Puppies supported Tri-Polar with a tour and, in April of 2010, they released the EP Live & Unplugged, which contained acoustic versions of songs from the album. Another acoustic EP, this one called Polar Opposite and also containing acoustic versions of songs from Tri-Polar, appeared a year later.

Sick Puppies began work on their fourth album in 2012, collaborating with the production team Rock Mafia. The finished product, Connect, was released in July 2013. ~ David Jeffries

This trio from Australia is beyond sick! Emma kicks major butt at the bass. Saw them open for Flyleaf in 2007/08 at Antone's in Austin. <3

There are two stories as to how the band name was conceived. The official version is that Shimon Moore thought of the name himself when the band members were brainstormin g , and then came home a few days later to find his father Phil reading the book Sick Puppyby Carl Hiaasen. The side version is that a neighbor's dog entered the garage during a rehearsal and vomited on their equipment. An early fan made the comment, "That's one sick puppy" and the name stuck.
