Sulfur City is 'talking loud' and proud of it
Sulfur City released its first album Friday, and band is planning to take its show to Europe
Sulfur City, a rock 'n' roll band from Sudbury, Ont., released its first album "Talking Loud" on Friday.
Lead singer Lori Paradis said the release is significant, as it is the first time the label, Alive Naturalsound Records, has ever produced a female-fronted Canadian band.
"I'm in the boys' club in a sense, which is a lot of fun," Paradis said.
"But I think it's opened up a new world for the label to look at other female performers out there and what we can do — that we can be just as rock n' roll and hardcore as guys."
Sulfur City shares the same label as Iggy Pop, the Black Keys and Two Gallants
Alive Naturalsound Records is also home to Iggy Pop, the Black Keys and Two Gallants.

"Getting on stage and playing in front of an audience is the best," she said.
"We just want to get out there as far as possible and play to as many people as we can, promote this album and show people what a band from Sudbury can do."
