Los Angeles post-punk quintet Sex Stains will release their debut self-titled record September 2 on Don Giovanni Records. Inspired by late 70’s and early 80’s post-punk, Sex Stains’ music alters between thought-provoking punk, infectious dance rhythms, angular guitar sounds and cacophony. The band recently revealed the scorching lead single “Don’t Hate Me ‘Cuz I’m Beautiful” and they unleash catchy garage-punk album single “Land of La LA” revealed by PAPER Magazine today. We encourage you to post & share!

Recorded with producer Mark Rains (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Alice Bag, Death Valley Girls, Miya Folick) at Station House Studio, the twelve viciously sassy tracks hit the listener hard and fast with catchy cadences and buoyant melodies. Sex Stains has brought their scathing energy to Burger-a-Go-Go, Echo Park Rising and Deserted at the Palmsfestivals, as well as sharing bills with the lovely likes of the Pop Group, ESG, The Julie Ruin, Shannon & the Clams, the Coathangers, Chain & the Gang, and Alice Bag. They recently supported Cherry Glazerr on a West Coast tour in June of 2016. Following a slew of Los Angeles appearances this summer that include Echo Park Rising and an album release show at The Echo, the band will journey across the country for September run of dates in the North East. See full list of dates below.

The band was formed in early 2014 and is comprised of stalwart members of the punk and indie underground. Lead vocalist Allison Wolfe was part of first generation riot grrrl bandsBratmobile and Cold Cold Hearts, both on venerable punk label Kill Rock Stars (Sleater-Kinney, The Decemberists, Bikini Kill). Lead vocalist Mecca Vazie Andrewsis a well-known dancer/choreographer and the artistic director of “The MOVEMENT movement” and has worked with artists such as Daft Punk, Toro y Moi, Venus & the Moon, Marina Abramović, Ryan Heffington and Liz Glynn. On drums is David Orlando, who drummed in Warpaint and is a promoter and resident DJ for L.A. clubs Dub Club and Punky Reggae Party. Guitarist Sharif Dumani played with Atlanta soul manCody Chesnutt and his Headphone Masterpiece band; he also recorded and plays with Alice Bag.  Acclaimed Puerto Rican multi-instrumentalist Pachy Garcia (also in Prettiest Eyes) holds down the sound on bass guitar.
