Sean Yseult's Star & Dagger salute 'The Shining'

Star & Dagger - Tomorrowland Blues 2013
Sean Yseult probably doesn't have a shoe phone or high-level CIA clearance. Just so there's no confusion, she's not involved in any cloak-and-dagger stuff.

It's Star & Dagger that has all of her attention at the moment, and the female stoner metal trio is releasing a video tribute to "The Shining," the classic suspense/horror flick directed by Stanley Kubrick. Titled "In My Blood," Star & Dagger's nod to Kubrick's cinematic tour de force was directed by Art Haynie.

The former White Zombie bassist has kept a fairly low profile since White Zombie split, but Yseult and Dava She Wolf of Cycle Sluts From Hell teamed up with a powerhouse new singer Von Hesseling to record their debut album, Tomorrowland Blues, earlier this year.

Recorded at Rancho de la Luna, Tomorrowland Blues was produced by Ethan Allen and Dave Catching, mastered by J. Yuenger (White Zombie) and released on Cauldron 333.

Oddly enough, it was a night of drinking with famed rock journalist and founding member of the Patti Smith Group, Lenny Kaye, that led to Star & Dagger's creation, as Kaye declared, "You two must start a band, I see it!" 

Leaning on heavy grooves and densely layered guitars, with Von's stunning vocals a force of nature, Star & Dagger sold out its first show in Los Angeles and they've since opened for the likes of Helmet, High On Fire, Eagles of Death Metal, Down and Saint Vitus. They also performed at the 2012 Voodoo Fest.
