Sideburn performed during the whole final, playing over 150 minutes of rock 'n' roll, and they even wrote and recorded a special theme song with climbing lyrics. The song ‘Rockstar’ was mixed by Beau Hill and is featured as a bonus track on the CD version of Electrify.
The band says: “This new album has been composed in about two months, which is really quick, but the result is really fresh and punchy. The new members did an amazing job to keep the Sideburn spirit and you will certainly notice it while you'll be listening to Electrify. For the mix, we've decided to work again with Beau Hill, cause he knows exactly what we are looking for and we couldn't take the risk to have an album that didn't sound as good as Jail.
