About:

The Distillers were an American punk band formed in 1998 by Australia–native Brody Dalle and bassist Kim Chi. Guitarist Rose Casper and drummer Matt made up the band's original lineup. Dalle was then Brody Armstrong, married to Rancid frontman Tim Armstrong, and likewise released albums through his Hellcat imprint. Chi and Matt left the band prior to 2000's Sing Sing Death House to join X frontwoman Exene Cervenka in the Original Sinners. The song "Seneca Falls" from that record became an unexpected it in the next two years, raising the band's profile as well as major label interest in the group. Casper left the band at this time. Brody and Tim Armstrong went through a very public divorce at this time, with her leaving the Hellcat imprint to sign with Warner Bros imprint Sire Records.

The resulting record was 2003's Coral Fang, and featured former Nerve Agents drummer Andy "Outbreak" Granelli and guitarist Tony Bradley. Brody as also at the time linked with Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme, which whom she married and had a child with in early 2006. The band fell apart over that year, with Andy Granelli lost to Darker My Love and Ryan Sinn to Angels and Airwaves. Dalle and Bradley have since formed Spinnerette.
