Santa Cruz, California has given birth to an ungodly musical beast known as DUSTED ANGEL. Formed in 2008, the band features Clifford Dinsmore on vocals, Bill Torgerson on drums, Eric Feiber and Scott Stevens manning the guitars and Eliot Young on bass, DUSTED ANGEL'S members are longtime friends from the days when several of the members rolled together in hardcore henchmen BL'AST. Following that band, Clifford was a member of avant-prog-doomsters SPACEBOY, and also helped form the cerebrally crushing outfit GARGANTULA.
Over the past half year since their inception, DUSTED ANGEL has transformed from somewhat of a side-project into a full-on act for the members. After playing out quite a bit locally and generating a massive response in the region in recent months, the band have also recently put a few tracks onto wax. DUSTED ANGEL's upcoming self-titled debut 7" will be released on LA-based indie label Corruption Recordings this September. Featuring three sludged-out sledgehammer tracks mixed by Billy Anderson (Neurosis, High on Fire, etc.), this is just the beginning. A full-length record is being planned now and is to be recorded soon for a yet-to-be decided label.
More local shows and tour actions are in the planning stages for 2009. For now catch the them at:
7/24/2009 Blue Lagoon - Santa Cruz, CA w/ Black Cobra
8/07/2009 The Viper Room - Los Angeles, CA w/ Mondo Generator, It's Casual
Stay tuned for more end-time updates on this juggernaut.
