Dex Fontaine and Jason Griffenhagen were lonely rockers wandering the streets of Washington, DC in early 2005. They had just started a new rock’n’roll band with a good, raw, high energy sound. But what to name it? At a loss, they ran into Jesse Hughes from the Eagles of Death Metal at a pinball machine in the DC rock institution the Black Cat. Between quarters, Jesse came to the rescue and suggested the name “Death By Sexy”. They took it and ran with it.
After seeing the neophyte band at an early show, Christian Baldo, thought he could add something to their sound, namely his bass guitar and angelic voice. He was right.
Since then, DXS has been slaying audiences with their brand of relentless, righteous rock music. Soon after that, DXS released their 1st full-length album, Curse The Curse, received airplay on DC101 in DC, 102.1 The X in Richmond, various college stations, and internet radio across the nation, they seem poised for bigger things. Or at least garnering enough good will to get free beer. God bless ‘em, and god bless rock’n'roll.
