Death of the Maiden have been holed up in Strawhouse Studios for the past two years working hard on our debut album: The Girl with the Secret Fire. We now need a little help from you to get it finished. Please pledge us some moolah so we can get the album mastered, create lovely CDs and arrange the biggest most awesome launch party in town on 29 March 2019. We have a number of pledge options to choose from, so if you don't do it for the music, do it for the board games...

We formed DotM so we could make great music and provide role models to young people in the LGBTQ+ community. We are trying to empower, be visible women, feminists, queers, (PoC – albeit white passing – privilege), in the music scene because, unfortunately, it is still difficult to be these things in the music scene and in the world.

Here are some nice things people have said about us:

"These four Oxford residents make a huge statement with their newest song, “Horses”. It’s clear from the opening to the very last notes that the quartet intend to enrapture and captivate. The dark, bleak, folk-rock approach is paralyzing with the shallow rhythms and the slight stammering of the acoustic guitar. Parsons-Baker, meanwhile, is like an enchantress with her whispery, hollow voice."-The Revue

"In March, the release of Death of the Maiden’s debut single ‘Soldier’ was greeted by Nightshift as the birth of something very special and an eventful summer further forward, ‘Horses’ provides another significant step on a path to potential greatness."-Nightshift Magazine
