Potty Mouth are Los Angeles-based trio Abby Weems (guitar, lead vocals), Ally Einbinder (bass) and Victoria Mandanas (drums). Originating in 2011 from Northampton, Massachusetts, Potty Mouth emerged from a casual, "why not?" attitude when Einbinder, who met Mandanas at Smith College, set out to form a band with like-minded women who shared her interest in learning and growing together as musicians. Though no singer was chosen at the time of formation, Weems emerged as having a knack for melodies and lyric writing, and what started out as a casual pastime turned into a way of life; recording, making t-shirts, and planning tours soon came in natural succession.
In August 2015, the band released a five-song self-titled EP under their own imprint, Planet Whatever Records. Produced by John Goodmanson (Sleater-Kinney, Blonde Redhead, Bikini Kill) at London Bridge Studios in Seattle, the EP showed off a new level of both songwriting and production for the trio. Singer-guitarist Abby Weems weaves sarcasm and melancholia throughout each track, supported by Victoria Madanas' drum-crushing progression and bassist Ally Einbinder's kick-down-the-door, solid foundation. The crisper direction emphasizes the work the triad has put in since their 2013 album “Hell Bent,” with more vocal harmonies and bigger production, recalling the sounds of influences like Veruca Salt and Nirvana.
From 2016-2017, Potty Mouth has toured and shared the stage with CHVRCHES, Against Me!, Bayside, and Taking Back Sunday. Their tour with CHVRCHES included a sold-out show at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. They have also played some of the country's biggest festivals, including Lollapalooza and Riot Fest.
DC trio Priests channel the spirit of punk and '90s riot grrrl with a fiery intensity thanks in no small part to charismatic singer Katie Alice Greer. Drummer Daniele Daniele and guitarist G.L. Jaguar keep things thrashibly danceable.
