She Wants Revenge’s music is hard to emcompass into a single genre or sound. It draws inspiration from aformentioned bands and various others including: Bauhaus, Prince, Depeche Mode, New Order, The Cure, My Bloody Valentine, The Sisters of Mercy, and etc. The band blends their influences with ever-present electronics (eg. synths and drum machines) in a style most accurately labeled under the umbrella term, “darkwave”, a style of music remniscent of the New Wave and Gothic Rock sounds of the 1980s.
She Wants Revenge have stated that they make “dance music” on numerous occasions setting them aside from the contemporary rock bands often falsely linked with the band in the music press.
Their self-titled debut, was released in 2006. They contributed a cover of ‘Kindnap the Sandy Claws’ to the soundtrack of the “The Nightmare Before Christmas” re-release. Their next LP release, ‘This Is Forever’ was released in 2007. They also were featured on a track ‘Time’, with Timbaland.
On Feb. 27th, 2008, She Wants Revenge parted ways with Geffen/Interscope to run their own record label called perfect kiss records, from which they released an EP titled ‘Save Your Soul’. A second EP followed in 2009, titled “Up and Down”, which was released on the 22nd of September.
Their third album is currently being written. In a recent post, on member Adam 12’s twitter, he mentions “10” songs as being complete, as of August 2010. The band hope to return to the dark roots on the first album, aiming for about 11 songs in total.
