♫♪ #SundaySounds: The Cruel Intentions

Reactions: 
 For those who don't know yet, Lizzy DeVine is back in business with a whole new crew! 
If you were a fan of Jackass or Bam Margera, you may remember his former band Vains of Jenna, which Kat Von D said was her favorite band on an episode of LA Ink.
Lizzy left the VoJ in 2010, then i didn't hear much about him again until about a year ago when he'd been playing with Chris Young down in Brazil and sang/appeared in Bastardz's music video for "Let It Fuckin' Roll." 
I started following him again after that, and then finally The Cruel Intentions are facebook official as of April with a single and music video released. They just released their second single "Stare at the Sun" on the 17th, and if you haven't heard it yet, here you go!
the band is made up of two Swedish dudes: frontman Lizzy DeVine and Mats Wernerson on bass, then two guys from Norway: Kristian Nygaard Solhaug playing lead guitar and drummer Eiliv Sagrusten...who's only 21! even i'm not 21 anymore...i'm jealous.
the first single they released was "Borderline Crazy" complete with a bad ass music video to see the band in action

according to Lizzy's facebook page, he'd written the song a couple of years ago. It's quickly become one of my favorite songs of the year, super catchy and the riff is just killer.

with only two singles released, the band has already started touring! Just yesterday they were performing at Paunchy Cats in Germany for their re-opening. The guest DJ for the gig was Jyrki69 (The 69 Eyes.) Both Jyrki and Mats'd my photo on IG of myself wearing one of The Cruel Intentions "Scandinavian Rock n' Roll" t-shirts:
it was pretty awesome and definitely made my day! Since they both liked it while they were in the same place at the same time, i'm pretending that they were talking about me to make myself feel better. Whatever works, eh? The band actually posted the first photo i took in the shirt on their facebook page earlier this month. 
If you want one, CLICK HERE and act fast...they started selling them on August 20th, by the 25th they'd already ran out of XL and were low on Larges. It's a really great quality shirt too, super soft and awesome price. you should get one and join the club! :)
On the 11th, they announced that they're writing new songs yet again! I can't wait to see what Lizzy and the guys have up their sleeves. You can buy their singles on iTunes and stream on Spotify, make sure to follow them on their so they can get verified! You can also follow TCI on Facebook and Instagram.
Thanks for reading, i hope you're as excited about this as i am!
