The Story of
In the late fall of 2008, Dave Stroud (bass/songwriter) & Danny Justice (guitars) hooked up with the full intentions of building a hard rock band with high power & energy.
The two years to follow were consumed with gigging, writing and even a few personal changes. Going from a two guitar band to a single guitar band fueled an entirely new writing direction for Dave, one that opened many doors to even more songs. Unfortunately, a series of personnel changes in late 2010 saw the Mollie train losing some steam. This is where Eddie & Tim came in!
Eddie Golatka (drums) and Tim Smith (vocals) had played in a band with Dave many years prior called Catz Ass, another Detroit staple. Once word got around of the Chrome Mollie openings, Tim & Eddie rushed to the rescue. Both men saw the potential in the Mighty Chrome Mollie and within a few weeks, the basement (now known as The Bunker), unleashed a mass of thunderous hard rock tunage that had lights falling out of the ceiling and pictures falling off the walls. Eddie’s pounding drums and Tim’s powerful vocals were the final piece of the puzzle. By February of 2011, Chrome Mollie as you know it today hit the scene like it was shot out of cannon…and never looked back.
By May of 2011 Chrome Mollie recorded/produced/distributed their debut EP “Sumthin You Need” and within 30 days, 350 copies were gone and the EP was then released to iTunes, Amazon.com and over 20 other distribution sites. With “Sumthin You Need” digitally circling the globe, Detroit & Flint rock radio picked up on the buzz and has also featured Chrome Mollie in their playlists. The band has also been featured on countless web-based radio shows around the world…the thunder of Detroit, CHROME MOLLIE, is kickin’ ass and takin’ names.
Dave, Danny Eddie & Tim has since shared the stages as direct support with such national acts as Lynch Mob, Y&T, Bulletboys, Kip Winger, Kill Devil Hill (Vinny Appice) and more right through 2012.
With the 2013 release's of "Dreams" & "Free Me", this epic journey continues...Chrome Mollie, follow ‘em as their Freight Train continues to roar through venues & stages near you!
