CHELSEA GIRLS, which is heralded as the first-ever female all-star-super-cover-band, featuring Corey Parks (NASHVILLE PUSSY),Samantha Maloney (HOLE, MÖTLEY CRÜE),Allison Robertson (THE DONNAS),and former Playboy model/DJ Tuesdae, has released the following statement:

"It's with sadness in my heart that I [Tuesdae] announce CHELSEA GIRLS are now on hiatus. We haven't broken up, but have halted business due to various circumstances...

"Allison had to leave the band because she simply didn't have time to work on projects with CHELSEA GIRLS... THE DONNAS are writing a new album and most of her time goes to that. I love THE DONNAS and hope the new album SLAYS!

"Another factor is Corey's busy schedule as a fashion designer and stylist (and mom). Corey Parks is launching a killer new line called White Widow and it's breathtaking! All leather and rock n' roll...the tightest shit you've ever seen!

"Sam and I have been working on other projects too... Sam remixes tunes and has several high-profile drum gigs. I'm getting ready to debut HUNTRESS April 5 at Les Deux and I've been playing with Dave Navarro in our new acoustic metal act UNDER THE COVERS. We have a show at Les Deux Monday, March 15, too.

"Yeah, it sucks that we couldn't keep it together, but to be successful, you sometimes have to choose ONE thing and make that your only focus. CHELSEA GIRLS are just too fucking talented to pick one goal right now. And sometimes you can't follow your heart, you need to lead with it.

"It ain't over, but it's on hold. For real."

CHELSEA GIRLS' name references an Andy Warhol flick and a premise — the greatest anthems from the likes of AC/DC, JUDAS PRIEST, BLONDIE and even some MADONNA. In the spirit of CAMP FREDDY, they used to bring in special guests, including actress/model Carmen Electra, who was said to be the unofficial fifth member as the band's emcee.

Video footage of CHELSEA GIRLS performing a cover of EDDIE COCHRAN's "Somethin' Else" at the Roxy in Hollywood, California with Lemmy Kilmister and Carmen Electra can be viewed below.
