One of the most eagerly awaited releases of 2004, The Donnas' Gold Medal takes the top prize for vital, edgy, modern rock'n'roll at its finest. Having broken into the mainstream with their 2002 Atlantic debut Spend The Night , the Bay Area-based combo now raise the bar, as musicians and songwriters, to deliver the best work of their career. Produced by Butch Walker (Avril Lavigne, Injected), tracks like the provocative first single ‘Fall Behind Me' shimmer with rock energy, blasting off the blocks with newfound invention and intensity.
After almost a decade as one of rock'n'roll's coolest combos, the release of Spend The Night saw the UK fall head over heels for The Donnas ' trademark rock/pop blast.In the US the album - the band's fifth - debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 'Heatseekers' chart, and the band also spent a lot of nights on stage, touring with the likes of the Strokes and Jimmy Eat World, appearing on Lollapalooza 2003 and California's Coachella, and embarking on their own headlining treks.
