Saturday, June 8: She Wants Revenge

pridefest_milwaukee_shewantsrevengeShe Wants Revenge makes their PrideFest debut Saturday, June 8 on the Miller Lite Mainstage.

When California-based She Wants Revenge released their debut album back in early 2006, it fast became apparent that they had created the soundtrack for the dark and debaucherous on many a dance floor across the nation.

Much like their electronic rock forefathers Dave Gahan, Rob Smith and Ian Curtis had done before, She Wants Revenge offered a voice and a rhythm for scorned lovers, bored housewives, jaded hipsters, gender benders and club kids across the nation, all seductively swaying their hips and pouting along to the undeniably catchy tunes such as “These Things,” “Out of Control” and the instant crossover hit, “Tear You Apart.”

By retracing the musical footsteps of their childhood, they struck a nerve in music fans everywhere with their tales of betrayal, lies, and deceit. They went on to sell more than 300,000 copies in the USA alone.

The band realized that music fans craved more than the average love song, and if they were going to write songs, they wanted to explore the sides of male-female dynamics that are usually left unexplored and unexamined. Set to an infectious beat, they decided to sing about things you shouldn’t do, and the things one does when no one is looking.
