“Grunge-pop finds a new hero in Ramonda Hammer” - CLRVYNT
"Led by guitarist/songwriter/vocalist Devin Davis, Ramonda Hammer is a Los Angeles-based four-piece steeped in the sounds of 90s alt rock and college radio." - She Shreds
"Ramonda Hammer strikes a thin dichotomy between thrasher-pop anxiety and a rocker's shoulder shrug." - Earmilk
"Ramonda Hammer have perfected an indie-rock sound that’s equal parts power and melody."- LA Weekly
"Crunchy, grungey, no-B.S. ’90s-style alt-rock, with Davis’ gritty vocals wailing through the quartet’s muscular hooks and rhythms." - Buzzbands LA
Listen: "Destroyers" at CLRVYNT or Soundcloud
Ramonda Hammer has revealed their new single "Destroyers" from the band's EP of the same name due August 4 on New Professor. The track premiered on CLRVYNT who said, "Vocalist Devin Davis can fucking rip, and the guitars are thunderous and crunchy, but the end is where things really set out to be different. The guitars wind together chaotically, creating a hurricane of sound and noise, all colliding in total, beautiful fury."
About the single Ramonda Hammer's Devin Davis says: 
"'Destroyers' is about the super complicated and kind of demented human brain. I mean look at our world! It has become easier and easier to affect massive serious change on others while feeling less and less about it. This is undoubtedly because of technological advancements and increasing degrees of separation, but are we doomed to feel exponentially more dissociated from and apathetic towards one another forever? I don't know, I just find it fascinating how and why the two, or ten, or seven point five billion sides of any relationship think and behave the way they do. No one is completely selfless, but neither completely selfish, so maybe we look at that for a basis of new communication and change."

Destroyers is available to pre-order now on CD and digitally at Bandcamp. Ramonda Hammer has also announced June west coast tour dates which will include shows in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and a hometown single release show on June 13 at The Echoplex in Los Angeles with Pom Poms, Brass Box, & Alyeska. Tickets for the show are available HERE. All upcoming shows are listed below.  

Ramonda Hammer is a Los Angeles grunge-pop quartet whose name comes from a lady featured on the television show Cheaters. The show is funny and sad, kind of how front-woman and band founder Devin Davis writes her songs. "Davis is the queen of grunge,” (KSPC) playing with quirky chord progressions, time signature and tempo changes, and dynamic, biting vocal melodies. The Destroyers EP follows up the band's debut album Whatever That Means, which is not only a playful nod to everyone who’s puzzled by the band’s name, but is a lyric from a track on the album.
