Goodbye Distillers, Hello Spinnerette

Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: .

Even before The Distillers’ last album, Coral Fang, the band had been subject to a whirlwind of drama greatly surrounding the lead singer Brody Dalle. To make a long story short she divorced Rancid frontman Tim Armstrong in favor of Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme and the two have since had a daughter. It seems Armstrong wasn’t the only one crushed in the wake of Dalle’s actions as The Distillers suffered as well.

Drummer Andy Granelli left the group in favor of Darker My Love and bassist Ryan Sinn chose to pursue the Tom DeLonge-fronted Angels and Airwaves leaving only Tony Bradley and Dalle remaining in the band. With the current state of things Dalle announced that the band would no longer go on but Bradley and Dalle would now go on as Spinnerette, which would also include “Wizard A” and Jon T Bonerham.
