Pretty Girls Make Graves, 2003

Back in 2007, the band announced via their MySpace page: "Friends, we are sorry to announce that our upcoming tour in May will be our last. Nick quit the band and the rest of us feel like it wouldn’t be right to continue on with out him. The 5 of us feel very lucky to have met and worked with some truly amazing people over the years. Thank you all so much.pgmg."

The band - Andrea Zollo, Derek Fudesco, Nathan Thelen, Nick Dewitt, J. Clark (and when Thelen left in 2004, Leona Marrs) - hailed from Seattle. After forming in 2001, the group released a self-titled EP on Dim Mak. They were signed to Matador and delivered their album The New Romance in 2003.
