The Wages of Sin play traditional music for non-traditionalists. They mix up a potent brew of Celtic, country, rockabilly, and bluegrass, finish it with a twist of Tom Waits-style weirdness, and chase the whole thing with a bracing shot of punk rock. Alternately rowdy and mournful, they’re sure to get your feet tapping, your heart palpitating, and your liver crying for mercy. Repent, ye sinners, and be saved!
"These Seattle punks draw on everything from traditional Celtic sounds to classic rockabilly for your St. Paddy’s Day pleasure..." -- SPIN
"[Have] been known to cure blindness." -- The Vancouver Courier
"While their second album Gringo Mariachi has all the rustic bluster of Yosemite Sam on a goldfields rampage, it also showcases a particularly rich depth of musicianship rarely seen in punked-up folk." -- Shite ‘N’ Onions
