BARB WIRE DOLLS / Bio

AFTER 650 SHOWS IN 22 COUNTRIES, GREECE'S FEMALE-FRONTED BARB WIRE DOLLS ARE SET TO EXPLODE WITH A NEW ROCK SOUND ON 2ND ALBUM

The groundbreaking Barb Wire Dolls - who started out in a Greek artist commune, moved to California, and then took on the world - are an underground phenomenon with a story that reads like no other.

After more than 650 shows in 22 different countries, Greece's biggest rock export, the female-fronted Barb Wire Dolls, are hitting fans and famous followers with a force not experienced in decades. Whipping audiences into a frenzy, Barb Wire Dolls are carrying the torch for a new breed of guitar-driven alternative rock music. The punk-influenced, danceable, and melodic sounds on their forthcoming new studio album "Edge Of Innocence" is simultaneously inspiring and hard hitting. Bringing back the spirit of rock and roll for a new generation to experience, Barb Wire Dolls (compared to a mix of Blondie, Nirvana, and U2), are being touted by the global press as 'The Most Exciting Band in 20 Years'.

"There just HAS to be new bands" - Mick Jones/The Clash

After seeing the band live for the first time in New York City, Joey Ramone’s brother/Ramones tour manager Mickey Leigh exclaimed, "Barb Wire Dolls are the most explosive and exciting new punk band I've seen in decades!" while Jesse Malin (D Generation/owner of NYC's Bowery Electric) stated that Barb Wire Dolls are the first band he's seen that capture the Bad Brains' (legendary DC punk pioneers) live chaotic energy on stage. Music Entertainment magazine writes "Barb Wire Dolls are the new face of Punk. The Dolls deliver real authentic punk rock with 70's CBGB style swagger with an oversexed frontwoman who makes Debbie Harry in her 70’s prime look downright homely, while singing like Patti Smith channeling Johnny Rotten. Punk’s not dead...not as long as Barb Wire Dolls have breath".

Members of legendary bands the Sex Pistols, Motorhead, Black Flag, Guns 'N' Roses, L7, Aerosmith, Sonic Youth, Germs, UK Subs, Kreator, and countless other artists have experienced a Dolls performance and the band was chosen as direct tour support for punk icons Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedy's), Descendents, Bouncing Souls, and NOFX. Receiving high billing status quickly on the international touring circuit, Barb Wire Dolls also co-headlined dates with punk pioneers GBH, Sham 69, Discharge, Cockney Rejects, Murder Junkies, and 999.
