CINCO DIABLO is the long-awaited followed to Blood Stained Love Story, Saliva’s fourth album, released nearly two years ago in January 2007. It gave the band the highest Soundscan debut of their career – #19-bullet on combined first week sales of 30,000 copies. The album also spun off one of Saliva’s highest-charting singles, “Ladies and Gentlemen,” which rose to #1 at Active Rock and #2 at Mainstream Rock. “Ladies and Gentlemen” was heard in a Sony Playstation commercial last year, and was also used in Wrestlemania and Ultimate Fighting show Wired. The song matched the success of their biggest single to date, “Always,” which hit #1 at Active and Modern Rock back in 2002 (from the Back Into Your System album).
Saliva – singer and lyricist Josey Scott, guitarists Wayne Swinny and Jon Montoya, bassist Dave Novotny, and drummer Paul Crosby – was formed in Memphis in 1996, and issued their eponymously titled indie debut the next year. Their major label debut arrived on Island’s Uptown/Universal imprint in 2001, Every Six Seconds. It included their first charted rock single “Click Click Boom” and the Grammy-nominated #3 Mainstream Rock track, “Your Disease” (featured on the Dracula 2000 movie soundtrack). (Every Six Seconds, now available via the newly-relaunched Mercury Records label, received RIAA double-platinum certification in July 2008.)
