Miss Derringer Locks Down Blondie Tour Date, Gets Remixed By CC/K

Incubating quite quickly in the Los Angeles music and art scene, Stay Gold "country goth" artist Miss Derringer have been making major waves and splashes with their blender of country twang, blues rhythm and 50s girl-group peppiness fortified with a very healthy punk attitude. With their buzz-heavy presence well-circulated in SoCal including supporting gigs with Bad Religion earlier this Spring, these art-poppers are gearing up for a solid handful of East Coast dates with New Wave punk-pop legends Blondie on their Parallel Lines-30th Anniversary Tour (tour dates below, more to be added shortly) who they've played with in the past and whose drummer Clem Burke was once a part-time member of the band.

In addition, their title track from their EP Black Tears has been remixed by the fresh and groundswelling British collaborative project CC/K, made up of Yves Cecil (Chimera Chimera) and Oliver Blair (Kindle) who have done remixes for Client and Robots in Disguise.

Headed by the husband and wife team of musicians cum-artists, Liz McGrath (herself a reknowned painter and sculptor) and Morgan Slade (guitarist/songwriter), Miss Derringer welds surf, garage, Shangri La-styled girlpop, and punk into a veritable mixture. Like a red '57 Chevy with white walls and fins souped up by the guys on American Chopper, Miss Derringer revs up a modern yet authentic surfy sound that begs for drag races on the beach.

Their current EP, "The Black Tears EP" has been generating lots of attention for the band including covers of LA Weekly and Music Matters and features on Vlaze TV. The groundbreaking 3-D video for "Black Tears" debuted at Liz's gallery showing for her artwork in December. The band is currently writing their next album titled Winter Hill, loosely based on the Winter Hill Irish mob war that took place in Boston in the early 1960's.
