She Wants Revenge was an American rock band, based in San Fernando Valley, California and formed in 2004. The group's debut album She Wants Revenge was released in early 2006, with three singles to follow ("These Things", a video featuring Shirley Manson from Garbage, "Out of Control", and "Tear You Apart" for which the video was directed by Joaquin Phoenix). The band has sold more than 300,000 records in the US. The band's second album, This Is Forever, was released in 2007. The group's third album, entitled Valleyheart, was released in 2011.

The band toured extensively through 2006 with Depeche Mode[5] and Placebo.[6]

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 would like to share. Adam added that the band would like to tour with their heroes The Cure and Bauhaus.[7] They have been released[when?] 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.[8] 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"), in the movie The Number 23 starring Jim Carrey, and in the season 5 première of American Horror Story (episode 1, "Checking In").

An EP titled Up and Down, was released via iTunes on September 22, 2009.[9] At the end of their tour to promote the release of Up and Down, She Wants Revenge began working on their third studio album,[10] which would revisit the dark roots of their first album.[11]

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.[12][13]

On August 1, 2012, the band announced that they are taking an indefinite hiatus.[14]

In 2015, She Wants Revenge gained popularity following "Tear You Apart" appearing in American Horror Story: Hotel's season première. The band announced 10 year anniversary shows throughout California in 2016 and have teased a full-return.[citation needed]

On 22 February 2019, it was announced that She Wants Revenge would be appearing at Infest Festival,[15] held at the University of Bradford Student Union, West Yorkshire, UK, over the August Bank Holiday Weekend.[16]

In August 2020, the band announced that they were disbanding.[17]
