Seems Brody Dalle just couldn’t stay away… After releasing their debut self-titled album via Anthem/Shock Records in June this year, former Distillers’ frontwoman Brody Dalle is thrilled to be returning to her native Australia with her new band SPINNERETTE for a national tour next March.
Spinnerette’s self-titled album features thirteen new songs written by Brody Dalle and produced by Alain Johannes (Them Crooked Vultures, Arctic Monkeys) and is the first Brody Dalle helmed full-length release since The Distillers’ 2003 Coral Fang album. The Spinnerette album was recorded in Los Angeles at Pink Duck, the family studio of Joshua Homme & Brody Dalle, and at 11 AD which is Spinnerette producer and band member Alain Johannes’ studio. In addition to Dalle and Johannes, the band line-up on the record includes Tony Bevilacqua (The Distillers), and Jack Irons (Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers).
The fire among Brody Dalle devotees remains ignited as Spinnerette played their first gigs to sold-out crowds in London, New York, Toronto & Los Angeles, inspiring NME to gush “When Dalle sings it’s with a jagged, full-throated power that pins you to the back wall….Welcome back, Brody. Rock n’ roll has been a drabber place without you.”
