Raised on punk, glitter, steam and sleaze…

San Fernando Valley-born, L.A. scene-bred, the SoCal quartet known as Prima Donna offers truth-in-titling: this band would just as soon spit on ya as strum a power chord—and if you’re lucky enough, they’ll do both when you show up for their near-legendary hi-nrg shows. Unlike many of their contemporaries, however, this foursome not only taps into early British Invasion rock-n-roll as translated by sax infused bands such as the Dave Clark Five, early Stooges and The Sonics, but they also put their own snarling, full throttle spin on it, leaving just enough L.A. sleaze in the mix to make it their own.

Want some proof? Check out their latest video, appropriately titled “Deathless,” from their new album Nine Lives & Forty-Fives (Alive):

Frontman Kevin Preston sums things up pretty nicely, saying, “The video is cold and dark, just like the song. Arthur—the director—totally captured the vibe.”

Nine Lives and Forty-Fives is an 11-song variety pack that displays the band’s skills in the studio, and compiles some of their rarest and rawest recordings, It features eight original songs, and three covers: “I’m On Fire” (Dwight Twilley), “Rock and Roll is Dead” (The Rubinoos) and “Rip Her To Shreds” (Blondie). You can grab the super-cool yellow vinyl edition right HERE, and meanwhile, check the tour dates below.
