After acquiring front man Bobby Amaru in 2011, Saliva became infused with new blood, energy, and spirit. The same energy launched Saliva’s career in 2001 with the release, Every Six Seconds – a certified Gold-selling album, containing the hits, “Raise Up,” and 2002 Grammy nominated, “Your Disease.”
Saliva’s in-your-face, anthemic writing style continued with a series of hits including: “Always,” “In It To Win It,” and the Nikki Sixx co-written, “Rest In Pieces.” After touring the world with bands including (but not limited to), Sevendust, Aerosmith, and KISS, Saliva began to shift focus toward their next studio album. This time, Saliva moves forward on their own terms.
After taking a year to write, record, and self-produce new material, Saliva became what is now a unified team. With the upcoming release titled, Love, Lies, and Therapy, the band would not be rushed or pushed into deals that were not advantageous toward the growth and expansion of Saliva as a whole. Upon adding former Shinedown and Fuel bassist, Brad Stewart, as a permanent member, Saliva solidified their new lineup consisting of: Wayne Swinny, Paul Crosby, and Amaru.
