Multiple elements converge to strengthen every bond. For distinct personalities sharpen Any Given Sin’s edge. The Maryland / Virginia based quartet – Victor Richie (vocals), Mike Conner (guitar), Rich Stevenson (bass) and Mike Showalter (drums) infuse metal, hard rock, and alternative in to a dark, dynamic and deep signature style of their own. Amassing nearly 10 million streams and 2 million YouTube views independently alongside multiple number one singles on SiriusXM Octane attracted the attention of Mascot Records / Mascot Label Group.
President, Mascot Label Group North America, Ron Burman offers, “I really liked Any Given Sin’s songs. They rock, have great melodies and big hooks that stick in your head. I had been watching them for over a year, and after hearing several of them on Octane, and their Big Un’s show, I was convinced the band had what it took for us to dive in and partner up. They have a great DIY spirit and have achieved a lot on their own. Looking forward to making a great record with them!”
Watch “The Way I Say Goodbye”
Any Given Sin shares, “Good music is the result of a strong partnership, passion and hard work. We are honored to be welcomed into the Mascot family.”
Any Given Sin first emerged in 2015 with their debut EP Forbidden. Initial streaming success followed with “Dynamite” accumulating 2.3 million plays, while “Another Life” surpassed 2.9 million via Spotify alone. Each of these releases reached #1 on SiriusXM and dominated the fan driven “Big Uns Countdown.” Widespread radio support followed, setting the table for the band’s broad fan base to emerge. Along the way, they collaborated with John Moyer of Disturbed and Trevor Kustiak (Evans Blue Producer) prior to finding the perfect match with Chris Dawson (Saul, Seasons After). Guitarist Mike Conner reflects, “Dawson definitely helped round out the AGS sound. He’s not only a great producer, but he’s also a great writer and engineer. He has the ability to saturate what we are doing and incorporate ideas from a slightly different perspective while preserving AGS’ identity.” That crystallizes on the 2021 single “The Way I Say Goodbye.” The song is poised to enter the Top 30 on Mediabase in the coming week.
With this signing, Mascot Records / Mascot Label Group will fast track their commitment to the band, supporting the song’s further rise up the rock charts which is imminent. Any Given Sin is managed by Tim Buchenroth and Frank Mastalerz at FM Music Management, while booked by Eric Powell at Sound Talent Agency.
