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.
