The Hell No! is a terrific female-fronted rock act that veers from smoldering, bloozy boogie to chunky hard rock to soulful folk-rock balladry. Last year’s six-song EP Your Venom was one of 2012’s best debuts. – Chris Parker – INDY Week
“Raleigh’s The Hell No might be the cure for your frenzied mind. This is a hard rock band that doesn’t try to be anything more: Some passages march through Sabbath-esque gloom, while others churn and strut like Billy Idol. The Berklee-educated Adam Johnson shreds with a tuneful touch, keeping the band’s tried-and-true patterns from feeling too clunky, and singer Brenna Leath scorches songs with her deep, gritty voice. They always sound like their only real motivation is to have a good time.”
Jordan Lawrence – The Independent Weekly
“The Hell No… is known for its bluesy style of rock ‘n’ roll with heavy metal influences and often dark, brooding melodies. The band’s hard-to-characterize sound draws comparisons to musicians as diverse as The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Janis Joplin, and Iron Maiden.”
Colin Campbell – News and Observer
“Oh Hell Yes!” If you love hard-driving punk ‘n roll with a bluesy twist, The Hell No is a must-see… Their style combines soulful blues with a punk spin that keeps you wanting more every time you hear them play.

“Hell yes for The Hell No! Before the world discovered Beth Ditto as a fashion icon, her band The Gossip was known as an amazing, dirty, blues-punk trio whose frontwoman had a sexy persona and a sexy wail. The Hell No still has a fire that I think The Gossip lost when fashion designers suddenly jumped into the mix.”

CAR CRASH STAR: Starting off as a two piece garage and punk venture, Car Crash Star formed in January of 2013 between friends Andrew Preston and Aaron Edge. After two and a half years of performing shows in the Ral/Dur/Ch area, the band has expanded to a four piece – adding Leigh Purvis on bass in August 2015 and Cody Knight on guitar in September 2016.
