The Dauntless Elite

Hometown: Leeds (UK)


The Dauntless Elite formed in late 2003 from previous bands Joe Ninety & Fig.4.0. They play Punk Rock in the vein of American Steel, Snuff & Leatherface. in fact they'd say they probably rip those bands off a little too much.

The band released a 6 track EP on the amazing Plan–it–X Records (home to bands like Ghost Mice, One Reason & Japanther!) called Security– which you can also get on 10" vinyl from Somebody's Song Records. Also available is the collaborative split 7" they recorded with their friends in Jets Vs Sharks and a split 7" with a great Japanese band called The Because which was released on Japan's Snuffy Smile Records.

The Dauntless Elite have a couple of new releases out in the next few months... A split 7" with The Mercury League from Sunderland on Yo Yo Records of Germany should be out by the time you read this. Also their first full length album, titled Graft, will be out in May. The CD release will be a split release with Plan It X records (US) and ourselves while the gatefold vinyl release will be a split between Bombed Out and the band's own Cool Tool Records label.
