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 this March.
This is no awkward first fumble in the rumble seat: Spinnerette comes with experience. Brody Dalle has been places nice girls fear to tread without sacrificing virtue or integrity. Her last long-term relationship, The Distillers, ended messily, the way relationships tend to do. In the following months, there was a lot for one heart to bear: the pain of illness striking those near and dear contrasted with the joys of matrimony and motherhood. With such extremes of life pulling at her, it’s no great mystery that the resultant writing is possessed of equally dynamic range, with nothing left out. As Dalle describes it, “Spinnerette is what happens when I let the tap flow.”
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).
