Exceptional and entertaining melodic hard rock -DangerDog Music Reviews- ###
“Always The Villain”, the debut album from Michael Grant & The Assassins, is out now! Michael Grant & The Assassins play a diverse and exciting brand of hard rock music incorporating elements from alternative rock and metal, while exploring different textures, genres, and influences. Band mastermind Michael Grant (who plays all instruments on the album) creates a sound that is intense, heavily melodic, and anthemic.

In the works since 2018, "Always The Villain" is a labor of love for this established talent. Prior to The Assassins, Grant was the creative driving force behind Endeverafter, a Sacramento based alternative/hard rock band signed to Epic Records in the early ‘00s. Handling vocals, lead guitars, and songwriting, Grant released two albums with the band before disbanding them in 2012. Grant then served as touring guitarist for LA Guns for five years and also recorded one album with the band. Prince, Smashing Pumpkins, The Cure, Guns 'N Roses, David Bowie, Tom Petty, and In Flames are all influences on Grant and informed the sound of "Always The Villain". Grant is now focused full-time on ThAssassins, who have already played shows in the US.For More Info Visit: https://mgassassins.com/home https://www.facebook.com/michaelgrantassassins https://www.instagram.com/michaelgrantassassins/ https://twitter.com/themichaelgrant http://instagram.com/michaelgrant
