The Damnwells are an indie rock band originally from Brooklyn, New York. The band formed in 2000 and has released four full length albums, Air Stereo (2006, Epic Records/Rounder Records), Bastards of the Beat (2003, Epic Records), One Last Century (2009, self-released), and No One Listens to the Band Anymore (2011, PledgeMusic). The original members of the Damnwells are Alex Dezen (lead vocals, guitar, piano), David Chernis (lead guitar), Ted Hudson (bass), and Steven Terry (drums/percussion). Steven Terry played drums and recorded with Ryan Adams’ original band Whiskeytown on the album Strangers Almanac. Over the years, the Damnwells have toured extensively throughout the United States and have had numerous television and radio appearances. Although David Chernis and Steven Terry left the band from 2007 to 2013, the Damnwells, with core members Alex Dezen and Ted Hudson, continue to appear in changing formations. A new record, featuring the original 4 members, is slated for release in early 2015.
