Daughters of Fission is a Progressive Alt Rock band from Phoenix, Arizona. Founding members Jason Prichard (Clownknife, Vomitus, Grum, Fred Green, Ziroh) (Drums/Lead Vocals) and John Banks (Flux, Arms of the Sun) (Guitar/Backing Vocals) joined forces in 1998 in Arms of the Sun and ended up forming what would become DoF after the dissolution of AotS in 2002. The official name change took place in late 2003 with the release of their eponymously titled debut CD. While their subsequent albums ’Abandonatomy’ (2005) and ‘M.O.T.H.’ (2008) share some sonic similarities, they clearly demonstrate the band’s desire to attain new aural vistas with each new songwriting venture.
In addition to their sound, the line up has also shown a constant evolution, most notably with the addition of Stephanie Dilk (Keyboards/Synths) in 2004, Samuel Lersch (GoZ, Fred Green) (Bass) in 2009 and Justin Beemer (Heroes for Ghosts, Arc of the Aurora, Ziroh) (Guitar) in 2012.
The band is currently recording their fourth album.
