The Distillers performing during the Fall Tour 2019 at Emo's Austin in Austin, Texas on October 16, 2019, with Brody Dalle, Tony Bradley, Ryan Sinn, Andy Granelli, Rose Mazzola, Kim Chi, and Mat Young.
Punk rock power trio The Distillers could be the musical equivalent of Evel Knievel. Scarred but strong, this indestructible band has scaled some career-defining jumps of late. Yet smartly, the group has forgone the debris and broken bones that always plagued Evel. With conviction and focus and just two albums in a few short years, The Distillers have succinctly knocked the music world on its respective ass.

Fronted and founded by twenty-two year old Australian singer/guitarist Brody Armstrong, The Distillers have caught a bolt of lightning in the months following the February release of Sing Sing Death House. A life raft of heartfelt punk amid a sea of nu metal dreck, the record chronicles Brody, drummer Andy Outbreak and bassist Ryan playing music as they define it, a salvation from the anger, alienation, abuse and resentment in the world.

Keeping things running smoothly in the recording studio was Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion, and Epitaph pioneer) who helped in producing Sing Sing Death House. A lot has changed for The Distillers since the February release of Sing Sing. The departure of guitarist Rose was taken in stride, as the band didn't loose a step and keeping live performances tighter, and more action packed than ever before as a three piece. The family is defiantly functioning at 100% and The Distillers are gaining momentum, like a freight train with no brakes, they're not stopping till they get there.
