 “[Sweet Justice] dunks the spunk of ’77 in early-Seventies power blues and the spangled hell-raising of Sweet.” – Rolling Stone

“Sweet Justice effortlessly fuse hard rock with soul, power pop and punk to create a sound that’s pure classic rock.” – KNAC.com 

“These guys have damn good songs, they play ’em with passion, skill, and just the right touch, and they’re not so interested in worrying about what they ‘should’ be doing as they are in making a great record. And that’s just what they’ve done.” – All Music Guide

Los Angeles 3-piece Sweet Justice play modern blues rock in the vein of Gary Clarke Jr, Rival Sons, and the Black Crowes. The 8-song Redline EP is band’s first in over a decade and serves as the long overdue follow-up to 2004’s critically acclaimed self-titled debut, which received rave reviews.

Featuring founding members Frank Meyer (Vocals, Guitar) and Bruce Duff (Vocals, Bass, Guitar) of indie punk vets The Streetwalkin’ Cheetahs, the 2021 lineup of Sweet Justice now includes drummer Mike Sessa, also Cheetahs alumni. The Redline EP was produced and written by Duff and Meyer and finds the trio tackling White Stripes-style stomp-clap (“Tell the Preacher”), swampy pop (“Summer Daze”), Texas blues (“Medicine Show”), glam-boogie (“I Get More”), Robert Johnson-by-way-of-AC/DC strut (“Redline”), and more across this hot ‘n’ juicy swagger platter.

“These songs are little harder edged than the first album and a lot catchier,” explains Meyer. “We got inspired by all the great blues-rock acts happening these days and wondered if our first album wasn’t a bit ahead of its time. It seemed like the time was right to revisit the Sweet Justice sound, but we gave it a modern twist on this one. This new album is less traditional than our earlier work and fits much comfortably in the modern rock landscape.”

“I think both Frank and I have evolved a great deal as producers since the first Sweet Justice record,” notes Duff, “which was one of the very first LPs we produced as a team.  Applying all of that combined experience to these songs was a blast; that, and plugging in all the crazy fuzztones we’ve acquired in the past 15 years!”

The trio also issued a slew of vinyl singles over the years, plus served as backing band for legendary punk guitarist Cheetah Chrome on the road. As mentioned, all three Sweet Justice members also play in The Streetwalkin’ Cheetahs, but each has their own impressive pedigree. Meyer is also the frontman for Iggy & The Stooges guitarist James Williamson, member of Long Beach supergroup Blind House, and bandmate of Eddie Spaghetti (Supersuckers). Duff is an established music producer and manager, cut his teeth in 45 Grave, ADZ, and Jeff Dahl, and plays in Jesters of Destiny, The Magnificent, and Scared Cowboys. Meanwhile, Sessa has toured with everyone from Cracker, Rosie Flores, The Joneses and Wayne Kramer.Sweet Justice will be promoting the release of the Redline EP with a slew of music videos and live appearances, as Eternal Music Group seeks music licensing and synch opportunities for this catchy, hook-laden modern approach to the blues.
