The Donnas announce " Greatest Hits " album, summer tour with Blondie and Pat Benatar
In celebration of 16 impressive years playing blissfully high-powered rock and roll, unrivaled all-female quartet The Donnas will deliver a career-spanning retrospective entitled The Donnas Greatest Hits, Vol 16 July 7th on their own Purple Feather Records. The comprehensive album features two brand new songs, two never-before-heard b-sides from their self-released 2007 album Bitchin, live versions of hits "Take It Off" and "Fall Behind Me", and two previously unreleased tracks from the band's earliest days together. The band also re-recorded five tracks, remixed one and included two alternative versions of songs from their Lookout! Records catalog (1998-2001), one of which is sung by original producer/co-writer Darin Raffaelli. Brett Anderson (vocals), Allison Robertson (vocals, guitar), Maya Ford (bass guitar), and Torry Castellano (drums, percussion, vocals) formed The Donnas in Palo Alto, CA in 1993 and have been consistently rocking since, an unprecedented longevity for the all-female rock band. Drawing inspiration from The Ramones, AC/DC and Kiss, Greatest Hits marks the band's 8th release and their music has recently been featured in the film and soundtrack toI Love You, Man, Rock Band 2, "The Bad Girls Club" (Oxygen network) and "Ultimate Gamer" (Sci-Fi Channel). The Donnas will tour the US this summer as headliners and with female musical pioneers Blondie and Pat Benatar, all dates below.
