Cocksure got started when Chris Connelly (Ministry, Revolting Cocks) and Jason Novak (Acumen Nation, DJ Acucrack, Czar) got together and started making songs. After their successful debut album they’re now finishing up their second album.

“Corporate Sting” is the title, and it promises to continue “innovative industrial cum punk cum mega-mixx old school Doc Marten stompers” as Metropolis (their label) so eloquently puts it. Another way to describe it is “Wax Trax era industrial”.
The album is set for release on August 21 and features 10 tracks dealing with “lives low on the log of the seedy underbelly of society, taking aim at the exploiters, the thieves, the dealers and the corruptors, cranking up the heavy drums and the dirty bass”. Doesn’t sound half bad!
