Los Angeles, CA (November 3, 2008)— ToneRiot Records™ has announced the release date for the SexTapes™ debut album on November 11, 2008. The album will be available through iTunes (worldwide), Best Buy stores, FYE, Borders Books, Wherehouse Records,, and more.

Lead vocalist Chris Pitman shares, “I'm glad to finally get this album out there as it was just finished this summer. Between my involvement with Guns N’ Roses and the band’s high expectations for a solid and unique hard rock sound, we’re stoked to finally have a great record that we’re proud to release to our fans.”

Music all sounds the same today, so SexTapes™ has created what they would brand as future hard rock. The music is best classified as a bit psychotic, but with plenty of melody mixing up the punk and psychedelic overtones. SexTapes™ consists of co-writer/founding member Kelly Wheeler on guitars, Marko Fox on bass, Ryan Brown on the drums and co-writer/producer Chris Pitman on lead vocals and guitar synth.

The band originated out of sheer perverse amusement with a series of informal jams by Wheeler and Fox in a cluttered garage. There, amid a bewildering array of audio electronics in every conceivable state of condition, promising sonic experiments continued with slated vocalist Pitman’s enthusiastic blessings, even though he was about to embark on a mammoth tour as an integral part of Guns N’ Roses (GNR). Pitman is also a member of the legendary rock band. Between playing multiple instruments (for studio recording and live in concert), co-writing and co-producing for the new GNR album, “Chinese Democracy,” he is also a co-writer with front man Axl Rose of the song, “If The World,” in the new Warner Bros. Pictures and Ridley Scott film, Body Of Lies. The interrelated relationship between the two bands means that all in-store SexTapes™ albums will also be available along with GNR albums.

Recorded at The Pass Studios in Hollywood where rock legends like Smashing Pumpkins recorded “Zeitgeist” and The Red Hot Chili Peppers recorded “Stadium Arcadium,” the debut album was produced and mixed by Chris Pitman. All songs are written by Kelly Wheeler and Chris Pitman.
