With a Love of 80’s Punk Rock, New Wave, and 90’s alternative, The Hellflowers were born. Christina Lopez (vocals/guitar) and Matt Eskew (bass) started collaborating in early 2015 which ended up creating a familiar yet uniquely distinctive sound.
In March 2016, The Hellflowers released their debut EP, “Come On Let’s Dance!” recorded and produced by Agent Orange’s Dave Klein and mastered by Jamison Weddle (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nils Lofgren) with cover art illustrated by famed San Francisco poster artist, Casey Castille. They self produced music videos for the singles "Come On Let's Dance!" and "Running Through The Fog" both directed by bassist, Matt Eskew.
The Hellflowers perform regularly throughout California and the southwest and have opened for national acts such as Agent Orange, The Dickies, The Muffs and Gene Loves Gezebel. They’re constantly expanding their touring reach and connection with audiences through their raw, live shows.
The Hellflowers will be returning to the studio to record a follow up EP to be released before they hit the road to Europe in 2017.
“Lead singer/guitarist, Christina Lopez…can really sing…in somewhat similar tone to Debra Harry. It’s a pleasure to hear this voice.” Donna Balancia, CaliforniaRocker.com
