History[edit]

Justin Warfield of She Wants Revenge - Live in Concert

The band toured extensively through 2006 with synthpop band Depeche Mode[6] and Placebo.[7]

In 2007, the group was featured on the track "Time" with Timbaland. In a recent interview, Adam Bravin told Suicide Girls that She Wants Revenge has a lot of unreleased potential b-sides, like "Love to Sleep," which they'd like to share. Adam added that the band would like to tour with their heroes The Cure and Bauhaus.[8] Recently, they have been released from their contract with the label Geffen/Interscope, according to a MySpace bulletin. The group formed their own label, Perfect Kiss, formerly an imprint, in 2008.

Their EP, Save Your Soul, was released to iTunes on May 13, 2008.[9] The EP contained four tracks: "Save Your Soul," "A Hundred Kisses," "Sugar," and "Sleep." The group has formed a fan club and participated in the 2008 Nylon summer tour. Their song "Tear You Apart" appeared in the first season of the TV show Fringe (episode 18, "Midnight") and in the movie Number 23 starring Jim Carrey.

An EP titled Up and Down, was released via iTunes on September 22, 2009.[10] At the end of their tour to promote the release of Up and Down, She Wants Revenge began working on their third studio album,[11] which would revisit the dark roots of their first album.[12]

A new video titled "Take The World" was released February 7, 2011, prior to the release of their first single, "Must Be The One". The video was band member Adam Bravin's directorial debut. Filming for "Must Be The One" began on February 8, and was released in March. Valleyheart, the band's third studio album, was released on May 23, 2011.[13][14]

On August 1, 2012, the band announced that they are taking an indefinite hiatus.[15]
