“The perfect blend of Black Sabbath and Valley of the Dolls” – Lina Lecaro, LA Weekly
Sean Yseult (White Zombie), Dava She Wolf (Cycle Sluts From Hell), and the sublime vocalist Von Hesseling are Star & Dagger. The band was formed with auspicious beginnings: Sean and Donna 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. The band layers dense guitars onto a heavy groove, strung together by Von's towering vox,which enshrines the specter of Cherie Currie, Anita Pallenberg and Rob Halford all at once. The band has attracted much attention, selling out their first show in LA and opening for High on Fire, Helmet, Eagles of Death Metal, Down and Saint Vitus. Star & Dagger's first recording is a (nearly sold out) 12" vinyl titled "In My Blood" on the boutique label Last Hurrah Records. The upcoming full length Tomorrowland Blues was recorded at Rancho de la Luna, produced by Ethan Allen and Dave Catching, and mastered by J. Yuenger (White Zombie). It will be released on July 23, 2013 on Cauldron 333/Megaforce. Pre-orders are available through most major online vendors. Tomorrowland Blues will be available as mp3, CD and a very limited amount of vinyl.
