"They are looking to change the face of rock n' roll. They are fierce, they are hungry, they are confident, they are the wicked ladies of Madame Torment."
Young, crude and full of energy - Madame Torment is Portland, Oregon's all-female original hard rock group formed in May 2011.
The idea of forming an all-female rock band, was lead guitarist, Erin Elizadeth's dream. Having met vocalist Elsa Faith through mutual musician friends, and sharing the same goals and influences such as Motley Crue, LA Guns, The Runaways, and Guns 'N Roses, Madame Torment was born. Shortly after the birth of the band, with the original lineup, the band released a 3 song EP in December 2011 (Union Sound Studios) which included their first sexy anthem, Bad Girls. The sheer chemistry between Erin and Elsa was starting to blossom, and they knew they had something special. They were ready to embrace a full blown rock n' roll journey, and share it with the world.
Shortly after the release of their debut demo, Madame Torment took a break in 2012 when the original line up fell through. After searching far and wide, Madame Torment came back in 2013 with a vengeance. Madame Torment had collided with rock n' roll fate, as the perfect female musicians for this band were finally discovered and added to the lineup! Madame Torment added 17 year old drummer, Weezy Denny, rhythm guitarist Annelise Josserand, and bassist, Ashley Luna to the Torment team. Now they were ready to start the Bitch Rock revolution!
With this line-up, they have opened up for national touring acts such as Witchburn, Wednesday 13, Richie Ramone (of the Ramones) Black n' Blue, Mortified Mortician, and Faster Pussycat. They also were handpicked to play the Portland Rose Festival and were featured in the Entertainment section of the local newspaper. In August 2013, they recorded their single, Party Til You Puke (Live It up) at Opal Studio (Clients include Scorpions, Shrapnel Records & Deen Castronova). Engineer Kevin Hahn also co-produced the song and the band released it digitally on their Reverbnation profile soon after.
In May of 2014 "Wicked Bitch of The West" Madame Torment's first full length EP was released, featuring the bands loudest, catchy anthem, "Get Out," as well as karaoke/instrumental versions of each track, which had never been done before.
In Fall of 2014 Madame Torment filmed and released their first official music video, with Chef's Special Productions (Portland, OR) and it was released via Youtube in November of 2014. Madame Torment plans to do a mini West Coast tour and get back in the studio in 2015.
Writing loud, raw yet still melodic party anthems and catchy alluring rock tunes, Madame Torment is ready to take on the world. Don't be fooled, this band isn't just looks and charm, they have the chops to back it up. They are looking to change the face of rock n' roll, and they believe it's time for women's rock liberation. They are fierce, they are hungry, they are confident, they are the wicked ladies of Madame Torment.
Madame Torment never promised maturity, purity, cleanliness or angelic behavior.
Once you step in, there is no turning back. You're tormented for life!
