The Donna’s hit the studio

Female rock quartet the Donnas are recording their sophomore Atlantic album in Los Angeles with producer Butch Walker (Avril Lavigne, Sevendust). The as-yet-untitled album will likely be released in the fall. It’s the follow-up to 2002’s “Spend the Night,” which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart and has sold nearly 390,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Fans who can’t wait for new music can download the Donnas’ cover of Billy Idol’s “Dancing With Myself,” featured in the film “Mean Girls,” through Apple’s iTunes Music Store. The group has four shows on tap for late summer, beginning Aug. 17 in San Francisco and wrapping Sept. 4 in North Tonawanda, N.Y. The foursome will also be DJing July 8 at the Beauty Bar in Los Angeles.
