“Energetic and genuinely anthemic choruses, rousing hooks that amplify their Johnny Thunders influences while adding their own sense of seedy majesty” LA Weekly
After extensive European and Asian tours with longtime supporters, GREEN DAY, Prima Donna were invited to record at their Oakland, CA studio with head-engineer Chris Dugan (Iggy Pop, Green Day) producing. The result is “Bless This Mess” – 12 tracks of catchy, hook-laden, high-intensity Rock n’ Roll!
Call them punk, glam punk, rock n’ roll… any way you cut it Prima Donna channels such influential groups such as X-Ray Spex, Ramones and Sex Pistols, as well as ’70s glitter idols Mott the Hoople, T. Rex and David Bowie. But it’s their sharp, concise songwriting, that separates the band from the pack and sidesteps any notions of the group simply being “retro.”
A month long European tour will commence in January 2012. U.S. tour dates will immediately follow in March with a performance at SXSW. The single “Feral Children”, mixed by D. Sardy (Jet, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rolling Stones), will hit radio Feb. 2.
