Dave Smalley

662 Interview with Dave Smalley of Down By Law, All, Don't Sleep, and Dag Nasty


Release year

Punk rock legend Dave Smalley (All, Dag Nasty) discusses new music from Don't Sleep, his extensive Down By Law output in the ‘90s, and more

Author & Special Guests

Dave Smalley’s been a punk rock fixture since the early ‘80s when he fronted DYS. Stints as the lead singer in Dag Nasty and ALL followed before the touring life caused him to reconsider what it meant to be in a band. In 1991, Smalley formed Down By Law, signed with Epitaph Records, and released six full length albums before the decade was done and another four in the 2000’s with the most recent being 2021’s Lonely Town. In addition to Down By Law, Smalley currently lists Dave Smalley & The Bandoleros and Don’t Sleep on his punk rock resume, the latter of which is releasing their fourth album, See Change, on June 2.
