Saskatoon’s Lady Deathstryke are a three-piece band who have taken up the cause of combining punk rock with the magic of ostentatious heroic exploits.
“Although I still believe in a lot of punk ideologies I find them really boring to write and sing about,” says Smolinski. “I just wanted the band to not be so preachy and be really fun. Luke [Brisebois, bassist] and I are in fact obsessed with comics and nerd culture so it was natural influence for us. Most of the lyrics aren’t complete retelling of comic plots but rather stories about growing up with comics in our lives.”
The band has released a vinyl 7″, and will hopefully be putting out more releases in the not-so-distant future.
