Who? Boston-based Damone — which features sexy Noelle (vocals/guitar), Mike Woods (guitar/vocals), Dustin Hengst (drums), and Vazquez (bass/vocals) — are releasing their second full-length album, Out Here All Night.
What’s the Deal? The band that takes its name from Fast Times at Ridgemont High’s resident bad boy, Mike Damone, dishes arena-ready, pounding rock anthems. Out Here All Night couples the crunchy guitars of thrash metal with the “I just wanna rock” spirit of ’80s hair metal, but the secret weapon is Noelle, whose alluring vocals deal with heartbreak, unrequited love, and sweet revenge.
Fun Facts: Bassist Vazquez was in a coma for two days during the recording of this record after he had a brain hemorrhage during a workout at the gym. He woke up to a priest reading him his last rites.
