About Prima Donna

Glam-garage rockers Prima Donna deliver rollicking, street-smart sounds with a modern twist. Formed in Los Angeles in 2003, the band is comprised of singer/guitarist Kevin Preston, guitarist Erik Arcane, saxophone/keyboard player Aaron Minton, bassist "Lights Out" Levine, and drummer David S. Field. Two years later the band embarked on a European tour with likeminded Texas Terri, offered their full-length debut Kiss Kiss for the Brunette label, and wrapped up the year opening for post-Sex Pistols project Glen Matlock & the Philistines on their U.S. tour. In 2008, as Prima Donna offered its sophomore record, After Hours, the band formed a friendship with Green Day, who enlisted Preston to join the touring lineup of Green Day side project Foxboro Hot Tubs. Radio airplay and U.S. tours with Eddie & the Hot Rods and U.S. Bombs frontman Duane Peters' Gunfight the following year further raised Prima Donna's profile, culminating in a support slot on Green Day's 21st Century Breakdown world tour in Europe and later Asia. As Green Day connected the band with engineer Chris Dugan of Jingletown Recorders, they completed Bless This Mess, which was released in February 2012. Nine Lives and Forty-Fives followed in early 2015. ~ Chrysta Cherrie
