The Oslo-based rock'n'rollers, The Cruel Intentions, has signed with Indie Recordings! The band was founded in the wake of 2015 and until today, it does not stop to excite with their modern Guns n Roses meets Sex Pistols meets Buckcherry style. The band has released several successful singles so far and has received massive praise for their intense and phenomenal live performances. The lineup of vocalist Lizzy DeVine, guitarist Kristian Solhaug, bassist Mats Wernerson, and drummer Robin Nilsson is now ready to take over the world with the upcoming debut album titled "No Sign Of Relief", due September 21.
With this album, the band creates a young, original and modern expression, albeit with strong roots in the history of rock. Their music conveys a wide range of emotional topics, with a light mix of optimism and pessimism as their basic recipe, although the tragicomical view of the world excels throughout the album. The dichotomy of the dark side of fun, contra the bright views of making mistakes; the loss of falling off in life and not fitting into society, contra the bravery with daring to be yourself, to go your own ways – these are the underlying themes in this album.

It is an expression of inner turmoil, balanced out by the moments of hope and determination. The band has commented: "'July' is about the summer we started writing the record, events and thought's from that time and the whole feeling of trying to find one’s place in the world."
