Star And Dagger Tomorrowland Blues on LP
Star & Dagger - Sean Yseult (White Zombie), Dava She Wolf (Cycle Sluts From Hell) and comely newcomer Von Hesseling - was formed with auspicious beginnings: Sean and Dava were drinking late one night with the legendary Lenny Kaye and he declared: "You two must start a band, I see it!" They took his word and set to it.
Layering dense guitars onto a heavy groove, strung together by Von’s towering vocals, which enshrines the spirit of Cherie Currie, Anita Pallenberg and Rob Halford all at once. The band has recently attracted a bevy of attention, selling out their first show in LA as well as opening for High on Fire, Helmet, Eagles of Death Metal, Down and Saint Vitus. Star & Dagger’s first 12”, In My Blood emerged on the boutique label, Last Hurrah Records.
Their debut full-length Tomorrowland Blues (Cauldron 333/Megaforce Records) features 10 original songs, all delivering heavy groove, low-end riffs and soulful vocals with lyrics you’d exactly expect from the album’s title. A soundtrack for the last great party to be had, stuck here on Earth, with an open invitation to all who feel gypped by the future. The album was recorded at Rancho de la Luna, produced by Ethan Allen and Dave Catching, and mastered by J. Yuenger (White Zombie).
“The perfect blend of Black Sabbath and Valley of the Dolls.” – Lina Lecaro, LA Weekly
