Daughters is an American rock band formed in 2001 in Providence, Rhode Island after the demise of Providence-based As the Sun Sets.

Daughters have four releases including their self-titled EP, Canada Songs LP Hell Songs and last album Daughters. The band has re-released their self-titled EP under the title 2002 EP on April 1, 2009. Recording for Daughters' final full-length album began in late April, 2009.[1] It was released March 9, 2010 on Hydra Head Records.[2]

Sometime before the release of the band's third and final album, longtime lead guitarist Nicholas Sadler and bassist Samuel Walker left the group, leaving the future of Daughters in doubt. The band's management has announced the band will not be touring in support of the self-titled album, and that it will presumably be their last. Sadler became a member of rock group Fang Island. In 2012 Alexis formed Fucking Invincible with Dropdead bassist George Radford, Jim and Ryan of Soul Control and Brian L. Mullen III of Artfreek tattoo.

On September 13, 2013, Daughters reformed for one show in Rhode Island.[3][4] Due to popular demand, a second show was added on September 15.[5] Although no further official statements have been made, ever since the reunion the band has had heavy activity in their Facebook page, and have since played several shows and currently have more planned for 2014.

In December 2013, a personal interview was with Marshall, asking about the situation of the band. Marshall stated that the band is in fact still together, and they "Never really broke up", but the band members needed time off because "[they] didn't like each other anymore". [6]

In the summer of 2014, the band began posting pictures hinting at a new album, followed by a video of drummer Jon Syverson playing drums with the description "Demos".
