HESSLER is a Chicago based, female fronted heavy metal band boasting a deadly twin guitar attack. Since the release of the Bad Blood E.P. in 2011, HESSLER have toured nationally and released five music videos. 2012 performances including SXSW & Rocklahoma shaped the band for their first full-length album "Comes With the Territory”. After the album release on November 27, 2012, the band embarked on a U.S. Tour in support.
A return to SXSW 2013 kicked off a new month long U.S. Tour followed by a return performance at Rocklahoma w/ Guns N' Roses, Alice in Chains, Korn, and many more. In 2013, the band took home the Chicago Reader award for "Best Metal Band". HESSLER provided music for the first documentary on legendary wrestler “The Dynamite Kid” Tom Billington.
Following a successful series of summer festive performances, a new music video was released through Revolver Magazine.
After completing a 25 show coast-to-coast U.S. tour, HESSLER brought in a new lead singer, San Antonio native and 2012 X-Factor contestant, Jessikill. The band recently recorded new music and released a new video on February 21st. A Maxi-single release and US Dates in support start on March 20, 2014 with a kick off at Double Door.
Powerful dual guitars and solid rhythms of The Infected are the first thing to capture a listener but it doesn’t take long to be enveloped by the coded, dark, inspirational lyrics or the easily accessible details of the arrangements. If you aren’t having the time of your life at their show there’s a good chance you died in the pit. Never a dull moment and always plenty of beer, The Infected’s sophisticated musicianship blends with raw punk power to create a sound unheard anywhere else.
The Infected has delighted fans of the bands they have shared the stage with, including Leftover Crack, The Casualties, Blitz, Lower Class Brats, The Adicts, A Global Threat, and Flatfoot 56. The band’s high-energy performances of original music draw large crowds to the show, transforming their every gig into a huge party with incredible music.
