Courtney Taylor-Taylor on "STYGGO": "The world is full of corporate billionaire scumbags who pollute the earth, kill wildlife, cause cancer, secretly running nations into the ground, and the moronic masses who just agree with their mindless slogans and will never fight the good fight to help to stop them until finally the last blistered blind three armed mutant dregs of humanity eat each other's putrid flesh in mankind's final nauseating death throws..."
The Dandy Warhols return with the second single "STYGGO" from Distortland which is due April 8th via Dine Alone Records. On April 1 they kick off a worldwide tour in support of Distortland. The dates include two nights at The Bowery Ballroom in New York City (April 12 and 13), DC, Boston and more. More dates are to be confirmed and the full tour is listed below.
Formed in Portland, Oregon, The Dandy Warhols consist of members Courtney Taylor (vocals, guitar), Zia McCabe (keyboards), Peter Holmstrom (guitar), and Brent DeBoer (drums). Distortland was first recorded in Taylor's basement on an 80s cassette recorder with the band putting on the finishing touches in a studio. Jim Lowe - best known for his work with Taylor Swift and Beyonce - mixed the album. Courtney notes that the end result is an album that is "organized like a pop record but still has the sonic garbage still in there."
