LOS ANGELES, Oct. 25, 2015 /Daily Offbeat/ — The She Demons, the All-Star, All-girl band formed by The Misfits for The Misfits, will be releasing their first music video later this week.
“BIG NEWS!!!! We’re so excited to FINALLY announce that we will be releasing our first SINGLE & VIDEO THIS WEEK titled “FRESH BLOOD” !!!!” the band announced on their official Facebook and Twitter pages.
“We’ve been sooooo antsy to get our music and the video we filmed, just in time for our fave time of the year with the talented @fatpogarty & @exhibitagallery out, so we can’t wait for you to see!!! Keep your eyes peeled!!!”
The Misfits’ formed in 1977 and broke up in 1983. No longer fronted by Glen Danzig, they are celebrating their 40th Anniversary the She Demons were formed to open for them on their world tour which will focus on the 1977-1983 era. The band recently played the Starland Ballroom in New Jersey, when they supported The Misfits at a rare hometown show.
Jerry Only formed looked all over Los Angeles to find the all-girl band for a new generation.
“Women are a strong presence in music,” Only told iconvsicon.com. “When I was a kid I saw Susie Quatro and The Runaways, and the guys loved them but the girls also admired them. Today, young girls will want to be She Demons. I see these very talented girls as the kind kids can look up to. They are so talented and focused.”
The She Demons is an all-girl rock group culled from hard rocking California outfits who answered the call to audition in April. The ad wanted to cross the Ronettes with the Ramones and warned “‘Beauty Deadly and Precise’ Beware or Be Devoured…you have been warned.”
The She Demons are Priya Panda from the band Diemonds on vocals; multi-instrumentalist Constance Day on guitar and vocals; The actress, model and musician Alicia Vigil on bass. Vigil has performed with Gene Simmons and Bruce Kulick and starred in movie “Legion of the Black.” Guitarist Kiki Wongo from Nylon Pink also played with Taylor Swift at the 2014 VMAs and Usher at CBS’s “Fashion Rocks Fall 2014
Like The Misfits, She Demons take some inspiration from celluloid. They have a song called “B-Movie” that’s as chock full of monster movie references as “Science Fiction Double Feature” from “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” or The Fabulous Poodles’ “B-Movies.”
The classic stranded-on-a-deserted-island-with-Nazi-scientists B-Movie, “She Demons,” was an classic indie sci-fi cult favorite from 1958. It was written and directed by Richard E. Cunha, who also made “Missile to the Moon: and “Frankenstein’s Daughter.” He shot it in under a week.
