This band has no press


Still working on that hot first release.



THE DAMED is an unapologetic punk band fronted by guitarist-vocalist Heather Hellskiss, bassist Suzanne Slade and drummer Watts Yoshizawa. Angular stricken guitar riffs soaked in chorus and fuzz feed the brooding driving bass lines that weave between the tom-ridden disco punk surf beats. The sarcastic, aggressive lyrics are thrusted at you like knives while still maintaining a comforting catchy melody. The Damed writes songs about feminism, equal rights and is fueled by angst caused by the Trump administration and their complicit allies. Their live show and music has been compared to the likes of Sonic Youth meets Sleater-Kinney.

The Damed̢۪s debut album is due out June 28, 2019 via A Diamond Heart Production (Dashgo Distribution). The record was recorded by Manny Nieto (The Breeders, Health, The Soft Pack) at Total Annihilation Studios and was mixed and mastered by Vanessa Silberman (The Kills, Ramonda Hammer, Wavebreaker) at A Diamond Heart Production.
