Brody Dalle, the driving force of punk band The Distillers, has announced the release of her new solo album, “Diploid Love”, which is to be released on the 28th of April. Since the split of The Distillers in 2006, Dalle has recorded under the moniker Spinerette (in 2009), but Diploid Love is the first album to be released under her own name. The new album has been produced by Alain Johannes (from Queens of the Stone Age/Eleven, producer of Mark Lanegan Band, Chris Cornell) alongside Dalle herself – her first co-production credit to date.
The new album features guest appearances from Garbage’s Shirley Manson, The Strokes’ Nick Valensi, Michael Shuman of Queens of the Stone Age and others. You can listen to the first track, “Meet the Foetus / Oh Joy” at Soundcloud here.
Dalle has also announced 5 tour dates for this April for the UK, following the successful sell-out of her upcoming intimate show at the Hoxton Bar & Grill in London this Monday (24th February).
