The Dangits
Within a year of formation In 2010, they began recording their first batch of songs for the full length CD release "Greatest Hits Vol. I". With that release and their growing local fan base, The Dangits were bestowed the Best New Artist Award from The Ft. Worth Weekly in 2010. Over the next few years and a few members later The Dangits were able to cultivate a strong local following along with a 7" record release in the fall of 2012. With a solid lineup that now includes on drums Russ Genders who joined in early 2012 and on bass Rob Navarrete in August of 2014 they released their long awaited 2nd full length album on 12" vinyl this time titled "Come Alive". The Dangits play local bills and have also played along side great touring acts such as THE SUPERSUCKERS, OFF WITH THEIR HEADS, ZEKE, AGAINST THE GRAIN, THE DWARVES, DIXIE WITCH, IN THE WHALE, ELECTRIC FRANKENSTEIN, THE HOOKERS, GUTTERMOUTH and THE QUEERS.

"With a sound that is very reminiscent of a younger, earlier prototype of The Sword's style, The Infamists put on a great show in the hot and humid basement of J&J's at this year's Oaktopia Festival. With a strong mix of original tracks and covers, The Infamists gave a varied set that was entertaining and, frankly, exactly what rock 'n' roll is all about. No frills, no BS – rock at its core with good tunes that hit hard when the band needs to and eases off the gas pedal whenever the hell the group wants. In between songs there was a quick, "Hey we're The Infamists and we want you to have good time" but that was about it. Song, boom. Song, boom. Song, boom. No Bono-esque, mid-show speeches or any of that unnecessary mainstream crap. Just three dudes up there playing music for a crowd of happily drunk college kids – and I know I wouldn't have had the show any other way."
-Alex Ancira, Sofa King news.

"Musical expression in Denton is a very popular form of communicating the creativity that the city possesses. Along with the Jazz and Blues festivals, there are always good, free local shows right off the square. As I was scavenging through the Denton musical acts, I came across The Infamists at a show off the square, a three piece with the good ol' riff rock tones that epitomize rock and roll, hard and straight to the point. The Infamists are one of the few bands you can find that exceed your live expectations. They don't mess around and tell you 30 minute life stories in between songs. They saddle up and ride their set-list with a seemingly renewed energy after each song. A band that people often relate them to is Wolfmother, however the two are vastly different in the way they play. If you're a Rock fan, you will enjoy The Infamists. Be on the lookout for their EP coming soon!"
-Chuck Stark, The Notorious Note.
