formed in 2016 with the goal of making great all-girl garage-rock noise, see the world, and have a  fab slumber party every night. We threw on some vintage black slips, threw off our shoes, and set out on the adventure. The lineup is: Nicole Laurenne (vocals/organ), Meliza Jackson (guitar), Christina Nunez (bass), and Mary Rose Gonzales (drums). 

In 2018, Jello Biafra signed us to his label, Alternative Tentacles and released our first 7-inch Bullet and then  our third full-length record, I Like You But Not Like That (2018 Alternative Tentacles Records), at a packed Punk  Rock Bowling appearance in Las Vegas. We then went on an unforgettable US tour with The Damned. We per formed at US festivals with bands like Rancid and L7, had songs placed on top tv shows like Peaky  Blinders, got great reviews in Rolling Stone, and made a stop at Mexico City’s Hipnosis Fest. Even during the pandemic, things didn’t stop. Vox hosted an Instagram Live show garnering over fifty thousand views, we played Punk Rock Bowling 2022, made our debut at Seattle’s Freakout Fest, recorded a 7-inch for Adrenalin Fix Mu sic in Europe, and, in 2022, took our EP Love Tsunami on tour all over the US and Europe and performed on the  legendary KEXP Sessions.  

In 2023, Alternative Tentacles released Snake Oil, our fourth full-length record, funded entirely by fans. Snake Oil was co-produced by Jello Biafra himself and got rave reviews worldwide. The summer of 2023 saw a massive 10- week European tour with special European versions of Snake Oil, we had sold-out shows in Madrid, London,  Cherbourg, Edinburgh, and many more amazing places, and played Munster Raving Looney Party, Relache  Fest, Festival Beat, Loungefest, Muehlen Madness, and Freakout Fest. We quickly sold out the first pressings  of the new record in both the US and Europe in two months and second pressings were rushed out on both conti nents.  

In the midst of all of this action, we went back into the studio with legendary producer Mark Rains in Los Angeles  and.. our next full-length album, Boomerang, is due out in Spring 2024 on Alternative Tentacles.
