Sean Yseult Unveils New Band and Confirms Debut UK Dates
“The perfect blend of Black Sabbath and Valley of the Dolls” –LA Weekly
Star & Dagger  are good friends Sean Yseult (White Zombie), Dava She Wolf (Cycle Sluts From Hell), Dave Catching (Eagles of Death Metal), Gene Trautmann (Queens of the Stone Age), and the sublime vocalist Von Hesseling playing heavy smokin blues rock.
Having confirmed their debut UK dates for April check out Star & Dagger's first video, Your Mama Was a Grifter, a scandalous bit of art trash filmed in glorious black and white by master director Art Haynie. Inspired by old chain gang songs, the video makes reference to many a film - Night of the Hunter, Cleopatra, and even the old Batman TV series – but is essentially a tongue in cheek homage to Russ Meyer’s Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!
16-Apr UK Manchester The Roadhouse
17-Apr UK Nottingham Old Angel
18-Apr UK Birmingham Bar Academy
20-Apr UK Cardiff Bogiez Rock Club 
21-Apr UK London The Underworld
22-Apr UK Brighton Green Door
The band was formed with auspicious beginnings: Sean and Dava were drinking late one night with the legendary Lenny Kaye (garage-rock historian and longtime Patti Smith collaborator) and he declared: "You two must start a band, I see it!" They took his word and set to it.
Layering dense guitars onto a heavy groove, strung together by Von's towering vocals, which enshrines the spirit of Cherie Currie, Anita Pallenberg and Rob Halford all at once.
Star & Dagger has recently attracted much attention, selling out their first show in LA as well as opening for High on Fire, Helmet, Eagles of Death Metal, Down and Saint Vitus.
Their  first 12”, In My Blood emerged a few months ago on the boutique label, Last Hurrah Records; a full album, recorded at Rancho de la Luna, produced by Ethan Allen and Dave Catching, and mastered by J. Yuenger (White Zombie) will be released later this year.
