    ARDENT SONS TO RELEASE THEIR DEBUT STUDIO ALBUM ‘NO MORE THAN THIS’ ON MAY 3, 2019 VIA WONDERTAKER RECORDS

    SAN FRAN-BASED ROCK BAND IS LED BY TONY T. SALES – CURRENT FLAMIN’ GROOVIES DRUMMER AND SON & NEPHEW OF TONY & HUNT SALES [RESPECTIVELY]

    Ardent Sons is a rock and roll band from Oakland, California, fronted by Flamin’ Groovies drummer Tony T. Sales. Their songs explore classic themes of love and loss, travels between broken homes and shaky relationships, and redemption in life’s near-forgotten moments. Sales’ musical career started with a lot of listening. By the time his dad and uncle gave him drums for his 10th birthday, he had already internalized their musical legacy, the elder Tony and brother Hunt having made legendary recordings with Iggy Pop, Todd Rundgren and David Bowie, among others. Years later, the jazz, R&B, and rock-and-roll that was drilled into his head would lay the foundation for his own music. After spending years working with several Bay Area groups including Oakland’s art-rockers Everyone is Dirty, and late ’70s SF punk band Negative Trend, Sales finally picked up a guitar and began writing in earnest. Following a few years of demo recordings, live shows, and line-up changes, Ardent Sons, whose principle members are Sales and Bay Area multi-instrumentalist Dave Flores, is ready to release their debut record, No More Than This. It is a sincere reflection on life unfolding, always looking up, but grounded in the impermanence of the human condition.

    Ardent Sons’ No More Than This will be available May 3rd on vinyl, digital and streaming formats via Wondertaker Records.
