Love the Sin, Hate the Sinner is the debut and only album of Saints of the Underground, a hard rock supergroup composed of Jani Lane (ex-Warrant), Keri Kelli (ex-Alice Cooper, ex-Warrant, ex-Ratt), Robbie Crane (ex-Ratt) and Bobby Blotzer (Ratt). The album was released on April 22, 2008.

Background[edit]

The album was recorded in Bobby Blotzer's studio (for bass and drums) and Keri Kelli's studio (for guitars and vocals), produced by Kelli and Blotzer along with Jani Lane[1] . The album was mixed by legendary producer/engineer Andy Johns, who worked with such bands as The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin.[2] The album also featured additional bass work by Chuck Wright (Quiet Riot, House of Lords).

The band was originally called "Angel City Outlaws" when they posted their first two promo singles: "Bruised" and "Exit"[3] along with a third song titled "Serial Killer" which didn't feature on the band's first album because it was written for a Alice Cooper project.[4]

This was the last full album recorded and released featuring Jani Lane, who died on August 11, 2011 at a hotel room in Woodland Hills, California.[5]
