All female instrumental rock/noise/sludge outfit. Black Sabbath meets Shellac.


Palo Verde is an all female, psychedelic, sludge-rock duo. The band initially formed as experimental double-drum duo called Stickitin but evolved into the current guitar/drums incarnation. Since 2006, they have performed extensively in the Northwest and have embarked on several U.S. tours, sharing the stage with bands such as Jucifer, Thrones, Black Elk, Japanther, and Kusikia.

Palo Verde has self-released several recordings produced in their home studio. They released their first official CD, History for the Rest of Eternity (recorded to 2” tape at Type Foundry by Lauren K. Newman), in May of 2010 on their own Drunken Beagle Records. Palo Verde toured in support of History for the Rest of Eternity in Summer/Fall of 2010. Palo Verde began working with Phratry Records in 2011 with the release of band’s epic recording, Zero Hour (Phratry, 2011) which was engineered by Christina Files (drummer for Victory At Sea and Mary Timony; recording engineer for Tara Jane O’Neil, Shipping news; live sound for Shellac).
