Described as Strawberry Shortcake meets Gwar and Valentine’s Day meets Halloween with the visual impact of Japanese Anime, One-Eyed Doll is an award-winning Austin, Texas power rock duo with a loyal global fan base and extensive international press exposure. In 2009, 2010, 2011, the group swept the SXSW Music Awards in categories such as Best Punk Band, Best Metal Band, Best Goth Band, Best New Band and much more. The group has independently released three full-length albums, they appear in Revolver, Guitar World and Guitar Player magazines and has left several national tours in its wake including major anime conventions. Blazing the band’s wildfire, amongst their growing legions or religiously crazed fans, is One-Eyed Doll’s cult leader: the impossible-not-to-love Kimberly Freeman, whose punishment is so sweet you’ll beg for more.
If life was a comic book, Doll Skin would be right at home in the larger than life color pages. Four Glitter-fueled, teenage, punk rock superheroes, wielding mighty guitars, as they battle tyranny and oppression with adrenaline fueled rock anthems. But don’t get the wrong idea, Doll skin is just as much The Runaways, as they are Josie and the Pussycats. And in that polarized dichotomy lies the heart of Doll Skin, young, pretty, and dangerous. (Imagine if teenage Harley Quinn started a band.) All that aside, Doll Skin is far from just a gimmick with a pretty face (ok, technically 4), these girls really know how to rock, pounding out heartfelt “glitter punk” crafted with a skill well beyond their young years
Formed in Arizona in 2013, Doll Skin, Vocalist Sydney Dolezal (15), Guitarist Alex Snowden (16), Bassist Nicole Rich (17), and Drummer Meghan Herring (19) came to the attention of Megadeth bassist and co-founder David Ellefson, who took the band under his wing, and together they began a sonic assault on the West Coast, playing shows with Green Jello, DRI, SLUNT, and many more, through Arizona, California, etc.
Doll Skin will be releasing their debut album “In Your Face” October 30, 2015 through Ellefson’s own imprint via legendary Metal label Megaforce, (also known as the launching pad for legendary big 4 thrash bands Metallica and Anthrax and many more.) which sees Ellefson handling producing duties as well.
Says Ellefson,”When I was first introduced to Doll Skin, I knew there was something really special there. Through working with them as a Producer, it became even more apparent what these girls were capable of. I’m really excited to be working with them, and able to unleash them on the World, through Megaforce, no less.”
Vocalist Dolezal echoes David’s sentiment.” Working with David has been one of the most amazing experiences you could imagine. He’s such a cool guy, and a great producer, and has created such amazing opportunities for us. Every day it’s kinda like, pinch me, ya know? We’re so excited to finish this record and finally release it.”
The band has also wrapped production on a video for the first single “Family of Strangers”, which will be released in October.
