Daughters of the Dead Sea / Bio

Daughters of the Dead Sea are an all-female rock/punk trio hailing from the depths of West Seattle. Their music is pure, raw passion and energy in its most primitive form, laced with early nineties Seattle sound. These girls will punch you in the face, then rock you to sleep at night.

They have graced the vast majority of Seattle's legendary stages over the last year including the Comet, the High Dive, the Crocodile, Club Motor, Nectar, Slim's Last Chance, the Skylark, the Funhouse and Columbia City Theater. They have performed alongside many local favorites as well as national acts including Linda Perry of the 4 Non Blondes, Hobosexual, Rat City Ruckus, The Bend and Sex Offender. They performed to a packed outdoor crowd at both the Alki Art Fair 2011 as well as the Georgetown Carnival 2011.

The Stranger raves about Daughters of the Dead Sea, comparing them to early Sleater-Kinney and Bikini Kill, but “with more complex sound” and praises the singer's “Corin Tucker-like warble.” The Stranger deems them a "must-see!" Their angst-ridden, passionate performances have earned them much underground buzz and shout-outs on KEXP.

Daughters of the Dead Sea's much anticipated debut EP, The Killroom Sessions was released on October 6th, 2012 to an over-capacity crowd at Easy St. Records in West Seattle. The Killroom Sessions EP debuted at #1 on the charts for Easy Street as well as in the Pacific Northwest and was recently voted #1 record of 2012 by Nadamucho.com! Their song "Waiting Room," has earned a slot at #2 on Seattle's Top 20 Countdown via JetCityStream radio with Marco Collins.
These girls are just warming up and already starting to make waves!
