Exiled Russian punks SVETLANAS have signed with Demons Run Amok and are premiering a brand new video exclusively with Vive Le Rock!

Fronted by the hyperactive and charismatic Olga Svetlanas, the band formed in Moscow in 2009, releasing their debut album the following year. Relocating the the US, they've earned a reputation for their super-intense live performances at a string of international events including SXSW, Vans Warped Tour, Punk Rock Bowling and Rebellion.

In 2016, they so impressed ex-Queens Of The Stoneage bassist Nick Oliveri that he joined the band! Their most recent album is 2017's This Is Moscow Not LA, recorded at Josh Homme's Pink Duck Studios.

“As a long running label if you get the chance to work with an outstanding Band you have to say YES!," says DRA's Rene. "If you share the same ideas, thoughts and passion a long living partnership is a must!

“We’re excited to welcome the Most Dangerous Band In The World, SVETLANAS! Make sure to catch ‘em live and feel the energy and anger of this powerhouse!

“Expect their DRA debut at the end of the year or beginning of the new year. In the meantime enjoy their new Video for ‘Negative Approach’ from their last record This Is Moscow Not LA.

And the band themselves say...."What we are doing here is not just a collaboration between band and label but it is a bond founded on values and ideals. We are ready to fight!"
