PRETTY GIRLS MAKE GRAVES has the foundation that most great and lasting bands needs, true friendship and love of music. Although only active for little over a year, the interest and support that has surrounded them upon first mention of their formation was overwhelming based on their pedigree of previous bands. But PRETTY GIRLS MAKE GRAVES are not ones to rest on their laurels, they are out to create and perform dynamic, compelling and powerful music.
Seattle, WA is well known for its creative and self supporting music community. All members of PGMG have done time in well known and respected Seattle bands over the last five years. Singer and lyricist Andrea Zollo was in the highly regarded DEATH WISH KIDS and AREA 51, guitarist Jason Clark is still in KILL SADIE and SHARKS KEEP MOVING, drummer Nick Dewitt and Nathen Johnson were both in THE BEE HIVE VAULTS, and bassist Derek Fudesco was a founding member of the much loved MURDER CITY DEVILS as well as pairing with Zollo in AREA 51. While many musicians outgrow the rough and furious genre of punk, one thing that makes PGMG so special is that the musicians involved honed their playing for many years before returning to reinvent what they initially loved about punk music. So while they do have the music history to refer to, what the band is trying to accomplish with PGMG is much more. Always keeping sincerity and emotion as a primary force guiding their music, but combining that with stellar musicianship and exciting song writing, PRETTY GIRLS MAKE GRAVES are a punk band to watch.
In April 2002, PRETTY GIRLS MAKE GRAVES will release their debut full length "Good Health" on Lookout! Records. Having moved on from all other musical projects in order to concentrate full time on PGMG, the band are focused on touring the world non stop and will no doubt acquire many new fans in the process. If the reaction to the band thus far is any indication, the future for PRETTY GIRLS MAKE GRAVES is very bright.
