"If Nick Cave, Lemmy, Elvis, Harry Dean Stanton and Iggy, had a child in a church gone mad... That is Dennis.”
-Steffan Charizi (editor of Metallica's So What! magazine)
Dennis Sanders is the frontman and creative force behind Los Angeles based band Spirit In The Room. The Spirit In The Room sound is complex and a challenge to categorize, a kaleidoscope of sound... compared to an experimental version of Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, Black Sabbath and as loud and aggressive as the Refused. Emotional, sexy and unpredictable songs that will make you want to dance but get you fucked up and inhabited by a punk fury. The dynamic high energy live shows are like a brick to the face as well as a soft place to fall. Sanders along with bassist Darren Howard and guitarist Kyle Nadeau are astounding live, seducing humans one show at a time on their 2017 tour of Texas and the west coast, as well as becoming a staple on the LA scene.
