The Distillers is an American punk rock band formed in Los Angeles, California in 1998. They released their first two albums on Hellcat Records/Epitaph Records before moving to Sire, part of the Warner Music Group. The Distillers are originally formed by Australian-born Brody Dalle. As lead singer, she adopted a signature harsh singing voice. Although there were constant line-up changes, Brody consistently played the guitar, sang, and wrote or co-wrote nearly every song on all the band's albums. Tony Bradley also played guitar and Ryan Sinn played bass.Before this more solid line up, early band members included guitarist/vocalist Rose Casper, bassist Kim Chi and drummer Matt Young.
The Distillers split for the very first time in 2004, Brody and Tony have since formed a new band called Spinnerette. Ryan Sinn joined Angels & Airwaves after The Distillers split, but left A&A after two years.
Brody announced the emergence of Spinnerette, a semi-solo project in March 2007. She stated in an interview that, "Spinnerette isn't a band, it's me and whichever musicians I want to work with at the time." Spinnerette released a digital EP called Ghetto Love, via their Official Website on December 11th, 2008. On June 9th, 2009 the band made their entire debut album available for listening on their MySpace page. The album, Spinnerette, was released in the UK on June 15th, 2009. The first single was Baptized By Fire.
