Three albums and 5 members quitting the band after, Brody Dalle of punk rock band The Distillers announced the formation of a new band. Dalle will team up with her old time band mate, Tony Bevilacqua and Queens of the Stone Age's Alain Johannes to outline Spinnerette.
The new band will have a different sound to The Distillers mainly on the message delivered. Dalle said in a statement, "Spinnerette get a clean slate. She gets to start over and be the new kid in town, only she ain't no kid. She's quirky and sexy and she f***s around." The songs to be included in the new band's first album were actually written for The Distillers. "The songs seemed out of context and inappropriate for The Distillers. I felt ambivalent about sharing them with anyone," she continued.
Spinnerette is signed to Sire Records, is in recording process in Los Angeles and will release the debut album this summer. Helming this project is none other than Johannes himself. The Distillers meanwhile, will remain intact according to Dalle.
