DiNOLA: From the swamp to the desert and back again, Crescent City rock ‘n roll favorites come home with a brand new release, and their single – a love song with a death wish.

Born in New Orleans, transformed in the desert at the legendary Rancho de la Luna studio and forged in the blazing inferno of Jimmy Descant’s Instant Art, DiNOLA comes full circle on its debut CD, DiNOLA, with the song that started it all: “I Wanna Die in New Orleans.”

Written by DiNOLA drummer Jimmy Ford and Queens of the Stone Age/Eagles of Death Metal guitarist Dave Catching during the first incarnation of New Orleans’ notorious Gnarltones, “I Wanna Die In New Orleans” went on to become a parade-route smash for Pink Slip, the first-ever all-female Mardi Gras band fronted by DiNOLA vocalist Sue Ford.

So when Jimmy Ford joined forces with guitarist Eric Laws and bassist Eddie Payne, whose musical telepathy dates back to high school, it’s only natural that Sue snarled “gimme that mic!” and started belting out “Die.” From that molten core was born the band DiNOLA, named in homage to its trademark song.

Following a furious burst of songwriting, DiNOLA piled into a Cutlass convertible and headed for Rancho de la Luna studio in Joshua Tree, founded by DiNOLA producer Dave Catching. There, amid palm trees canopied by shooting stars, they joined a long line of Rancho recording alumni: Mark Lannegan, Foo Fighters, Kyuss, Arctic Monkey, Victoria Williams, Daniel Lanois and PJ Harvey, to name but a few.

“It’s good to leave your regular environment and isolate yourself in the desert with your music” says Sue.

Armed with 13 masterfully mixed tracks, the band headed home to a baptism by fire at their first-ever live performance: “Descant vs. DiNOLA,” a no-holds-barred Instant Art assemblage by Jimmy “Rocketman” Descant, sound tracked by DiNOLA , at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. 
The DiNOLA cover art created that day is now part of the Ogden’s permanent collection.

DiNOLA wants to return to Joshua Tree to record their second album, but relocation is not an option.

“I love the desert but I still want to die in New Orleans,” says Sue. 
“Going down that avenue on the float, rockin’ it to a million people!”
