The Donnas Sign To Atlantic &

The Palo Alto, California-based quartet The Donnas have just signed a worldwide recording contract with Atlantic Records after releasing three indie albums for Lookout! Records. The band -- Brett Anderson (a.k.a. Donna A), vocals; Allison Robertson (Donna R), guitars; Maya Ford (Donna F), bass; and Torry Castellano (Donna C), drums -- are currently in the midst of writing songs for their Atlantic debut. They will then spend March and April recording at San Francisco's Toast Studios with longtime producer Robert Shimp. The Donnas' eagerly awaited new album is tentatively planned for a Summer 2002 release.

"We've always been a band who wanted to reach the largest audience possible, and Atlantic Records will help us do that," said Donna F. "We are and always will be part of the 'fun generation.'"

Since their formation in 1995, the Donnas have been cuttin’ records, recording indie singles and touring constantly. They made their recorded debut with a trio of singles on the Super*Teem label, followed by a self-titled debut album in 1997. The next year saw the Donnas signing to the world-renowned punk rock label, Lookout! Records, where they released three widely praised albums, American Teenage Rock & Roll Machine (1998), Get Skintight (1999), and The Donnas Turn 21 (2001).

The Donnas have drawn well-deserved raves for their high-energy live sets. In addition to any number of North American tours (both as headliner and with such acts as Green Day, Bratmobile, and Cinderella), the band have also rocked audiences around the world, including performances at 2001's Carling Weekend at Reading and Leeds.

On March 2nd, the Donnas will headline a multi-artist bill at San Francisco's Bimbo's 365 Club as part of the 10th Annual Noise Pop Festival.
