Maylene and the Sons of Disaster


Maylene and the Sons of Disaster is a southern rock/metal band. They formed in 2004 in Birmingham, Alabama and began touring the southern United States. In 2005, Maylene and the Sons of Disaster signed to Mono vs. Stereo and released their self-titled debut, Maylene and the Sons of Disaster.

Maylene and the Sons of Disaster’s II was released on Ferret Records nationwide on March 20, 2007.

Maylene’s third album, III, was released on June 23, 2009. The song Just A Shock was released to the band’s MySpace page on May 11th, 2009. III debuted at #71 on the Billboard 200.

Maylene released their fourth album, IV,  on September 27, 2011. The band's first single "In Dead We Dream" was released online before the album release date. Maylene's official Twitter said on March 2 "There is no way to describe this record. Be ready to have your minds open to the best Maylene yet." The album is again on Ferret Records and was produced by Brian Virtue and Rob Graves. Dallas was quoted saying "We are so excited about this new record… it will be by far our best yet. We couldn't ask for a better group of people on board making this record happen."

Dallas Taylor is the most notable member of Maylene and the Sons of Disaster. He was the original vocalist for the metalcore/post-hardcore band Underoath until late 2003.

The band name and concept are based on the legend of the criminal gang of Ma Barker and her sons, noting that evil lifestyles will be met with “divine justice”.

Maylene’s current roster is:
Dallas Taylor - Vocals
Roman Haviland - Bass
Kelly Scott Nunn - Guitar
Matt Clark - Drums
Chad Huff - Guitar
Jake Duncan - Guitar

and former members include:
Scott Collum - Guitar (2004 - 2008)
Josh Cornutt - Guitar (2004 - 2008)
Josh Williams - Guitar (2005 - 2008)
Lee Turner - Drums (2004-2008)



Although there have been many reports of Maylene and the Sons of Disaster being a Christian band, there is little to no evidence in their lyrics, and Dallas Taylor has been noted in a 2006 interview that “Maylene and Christianity are children of two entirely separate mothers.”
