Since 2011, Black Sabbitch have been selling out shows and wowing even the most difficult to please Sabbath worshipers, gaining a rabid fan base and the respect of critics, fans and musicians alike.
They were hand-picked by Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne to open the inaugural Ozzfiesta and by Dave Grohl to play Cal Jam with Foo Fighters and Iggy Pop, after which the FooFighters shared photos of Black Sabbitch saying “we were spellbound.” Nick Zinner of The Yeah Yeah Yeahs chose Black Sabbitch to headline his curated festival Bedrocktoberfest and legendary street artist Shepard Fairey had Black Sabbitch open his Black Sabbath retrospective, Never Say Die.
Electroclash superstar Peaches recently sat in as lead vocalist with Black Sabbitch for a special two night run in Los Angeles. The LA Weekly recently said of Black Sabbitch. “Finally Black Sabbitch took the stage and pretty much melted everyone’s faces.
The all-female Black Sabbath… were not only talented — nailing every note of the legendary group’s familiar repertoire — but were captivating to an almost distracting level.
Looking up at them from the crowd (which had erupted into a mosh pit…) I couldn’t help but wonder what these women’s stories were. They emanated the effortless cool of rock and roll, but with about 10 extra ounces of sexy confidence.”
Black Sabbitch are Angie Scarpa / Drums, Melanie Makaiwi / Bass, Emily Burton / Guitar, Alice Austin / Vocals
“Those who seek the purest source of the one-of-a-kind Sabbath sound never walk away from a Sabbitch live show feeling like they settled for a dollar store version of the Birmingham four. Sabbitch offers an experience that even Ozzy and the boys couldn’t provide. After adding up Sabbitch’s raw musical talent, and their ability to play the songs Sabbath were forced to raise to the rafters…the only label you could possibly hang on Black Sabbitch would have to be “undeniable.” NEW TIMES
“Don’t call Black Sabbitch a tribute. They are the female version of Black Sabbath.They are a hard-rock band playing old-school Sabbath and they bring a new shine to old doom. Indeed, they rock the living hell out of Sabbath’s catalog.” San Diego Reader
“Cover bands, tribute bands and the rest, we don’t need most of ’em, but we do need Black Sabbitch.” OrganThing.com“Believe me when I say they are bringing it. They do more than just cover Sabbath. It’s as if they are from a freaking alternate universe.” Alibi.com
