Star & Dagger is the new low end riff outlet for bassist Sean Yseult of White Zombie fame. More devil/less disco, the band combine bluesy, sludgy riffing to rival Kyuss with psychedelic feedback plus the crooning vocals of Von Hesseling. Rounded out by Donna She Wolf (Cycle Sluts From Hell) and Dustin Crops, plus live guitar beefage from Dave Catching (Eagles Of Death Metal), Star & Dagger are set to kill. They even cover “Out Of Focus” by Blue Cheer!
An upcoming show with Helmet and a 3 song 12″ is due out on Last Hurrah Records featuring material tracked in Joshua Tree with Ethan Allen and songs produced by (and featuring a cameo from) White Zombie guitarist J. Yuenger. A full length “Tomorrowland Blues” is also in the works. Lindsey Kuhn will be doing the album art for Star & Dagger’s first release.
You can hear “In My Blood” and “Used to me” (not on 12″) streaming on their Facebook. (Band photo by Leslie Van Stelten).
