Alabama Records has announced the signing of American hard rock band ROCKETS TO RUIN for an exclusive Scandinavian release of their debut album, "Love Drugs Rebellion", on April 9, 2007.

Produced by Rachel Bolan (SKID ROW), ROCKETS TO RUIN's "raw, uncompromising sound slaps conformity in the face, reaching out to a generation lusting after the glory days of rock n' roll," according to a press release. "Loud, energetic and fun is their approach to songwriting. Energy, attitude, sweat, and sleaze are their approach to the stage. They don't believe their lives are bad or that life is unfair. Instead, they believe in KISS, GUNS N' ROSES, MÖTLEY CRÜE, RAMONES, THE CULT and the power of rock n' roll…and it shows! With a non-stop buzz developing in the South Eastern United States, ROCKETS TO RUIN has made its mark on fans of this music and the numbers are growing daily."

ROCKETS TO RUIN recently supported Paul Stanley (KISS) on the Southeast leg of his solo tour in the U.S. and will soon embark on a few dates with Jason McMaster (ex-DANGEROUS TOYS) and his new band BROKEN TEETH.

ROCKETS TO RUIN has previously toured with SKID ROW, KING'S X, NASHVILLE PUSSY and have opened for such bands as GEORGIA SATELLITES, Josh Todd of BUCKCHERRY and DARK NEW DAY, to name but a few.

The signing with Swedish label Alabama Records marks the first step towards the European market for ROCKETS TO RUIN.
