The Darts (US):
THE DARTS formed in 2016 with the goal of making great all-girl garage-rock noise, see the world, and have a fab slumber party every night. We threw on some vintage black slips, threw off our shoes, and set out on the ad-
In the first six months, we put out two self-produced EPs and signed with Dirty Water Records (UK). In the first year, the label put out our first full-length vinyl release, Me.Ow (2017 Dirty Water Records). We headed to Europe a bunch of times and never wanted to come home. But when we did, Dirty Water re-released the first two
EPs as a second full-length vinyl, The Darts (2017 Dirty Water Records) and we toured all over the U.S. a bunch of times, with great bands like Australia’s The Living End and Billie Joe Armstrong’s The Longshot – and, once again, never wanted to come home. Our idols started noticing, including author Stephen King, actors Drew Carey and Fred Armisen, and punk legends Jello Biafra and Blag Dahlia, sometimes even coming to shows
and getting on stage with us. Two years into the project, we were on bigger European stages like Sjockfest, Cosmic Trip, and Roots n Roses, with acts like Turbonegro, The Flaming Lips, and The Dead Kennedys.
In 2018, Jello Biafra signed the band to his label, Alternative Tentacles, and released the third full-length
record, I Like You But Not Like That (2018 Alternative Tentacles Records), at a packed Punk Rock Bowling appearance in Las Vegas. We then embarked on an unforgettable coast-to-coast US tour with our heroes The Damned. We found ourselves performing with bands like Rancid and L7, had songs placed on top tv shows like Peaky Blinders, got thrilling reviews in Rolling Stone, made a stop at Mexico City’s superb Hipnosis Fest, and then…the pandemic hit.
But even then, things didn’t stop. Vox hosted an Instagram Live show garnering over fifty thousand views, we played Punk Rock Bowling 2022, made our debut at Seattle’s uber-hip Freakout Fest, and recorded a new 7-inch for Adrenalin Fix Music in Europe. By summer of 2022, we toured all over the US again, performed on the legendary KEXP Sessions, and finished recording a new full-length record (funded entirely by fans) co-produced by Jello Biafra himself. Snake Oil will be released on Alternative Tentacles in early 2023. European tours are lined up well into next year…and work is already beginning on the next record. See you out there.
Jo-Jo & The Teeth:
A glamorous Art Rock rebirth forged by the collision of a Canadian powerduo and a fierce Isle of Wight Trio. This transatlantic marriage à-la Fleetwood Mac, blend and bend inspirations from every corner of music. A dark & moody forward driving sound, intimately rooted in good old fashioned guitar rock and roll. Jo-Jo & The Teeth conjures an arena sound and spectacle, woven together with velvety bluesy depths and moments of breezy pop sentiments, anchored by an unshakable punk rock spirit.
London based rock band The Molotovs are hell bent on being the forefront of a new youth explosion. This trio are fast gaining a reputation for their short, sharp punchy originals and their incendiary and highly charged stage craft. They are famed for live performances that leave absolutely nothing in the dressing room.
