Tonight’s Feature Band:
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. Shortly after forming in 2013, when members Vocalist Sydney Dolezal, Guitarist Alex Snowden, Bassist Nicole Rich, and Drummer Meghan Herring met at the Phoenix SCHOOL OF ROCK, the fledgling band came to the attention of Megadeth bassist and co-founder David Ellefson, who took them under his wing, and together they began a sonic assault on the West Coast, playing shows with Social Distortion, Green Jello, DRI, SLUNT, and many more, and set out to work on their Ellefson produced debut studio release.
2015 saw the Worldwide release of Doll Skin’s debut EP In Your Face, through Ellefson’s own imprint EMP – Ellefson Music Productions, distributed Megaforce Records, (also known as the launching pad for legendary big 4 thrash bands Metallica and Anthrax and many more.) and Cargo Records in Europe, and set Doll Skin on a trajectory straight to the ranks of the Hard Rock elite.
Says David, “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.”
And boy, was he right. Since its release, the band has garnered massive worldwide press and airplay, including 2 months of repeat spins on Rodney on the Roq on the World Famous KROQ, grabbing rotation and winning cage matches all over the US, topping playlists in Japan, and finding a home on playlists across Europe. The band is set to appear on SHIPROCKED 2016, as well as a performances at NAMM and SXSW, support dates for Metal Allegiance in January, and their first headlining radio tour in March 2016.
