Barb Wire Dolls Announce New Album Desperate
No sooner had we finished our review of punk legend John Lydon’s PiL gig, an email announcing the release of Barb Wire Dolls‘ latest album Desperate dropped in decibelROGUE’s inbox. Funny how things work out!
Hailing from an artist commune on the island of Crete, Barb Wire Dolls, sold everything they owned and left for Los Angeles back in 2010. Upon their arrival in California, the band immediately sold out the world famous Roxy Theatre in Hollywood, and soon came to the attention of Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead. After seeing one of their live performances, Lemmy took an immediate interest in the band and placed them under his supportive wing. Barb Wire Dolls have since gone on to melt ears and hearts on 700 stages across 22 countries in just under five years, consistently selling out club dates in America, the UK and Europe.
“If you were bummed that you missed out on the Sex Pistols and Black Flag because you were only one, or not even born yet, here’s your chance to catch one of the best bands playing that style today. From their music to their attitude, Barb Wire Dolls embody that same spirit of the late ‘70s punk scene.” – Washington Times
The ten-song album contains gripping rock tracks, empowering anthems, and hard-edged thrashers, all performed with the classic punk rock energy the Barb Wire Dolls have become internationally known for. Desperate is being released world-wide this summer in conjunction with the band’s debut performance at Germany’s Wacken Open Air, the largest metal festival in the world. Out to smash all misconceptions about women in rock today, Barb Wire Dolls’ cultural and musical immediacy is not to be missed.
With a bit of luck decibelROGUE will get our hands on a copy of the album soon to give you a full review. In the meantime check out the video to Drown, which is the first single to be released from the new album.
