Album Spotlight : Doll Skin - Manic Pixie Dream Girl

Manic Pixie Dream Girl is the follow up to Doll Skin’s EMP debut, 2016’s IN YOUR FACE (AGAIN), Produced by Grammy Winning Megadeth bassist David Ellefson, which garnered massive Worldwide press, spawned multiple singles including “Family of Strangers”, “Let’s Be Honest”, and “Furious Fixation”, and saw the band tour much of the year with Otep, Lacey Sturm, Fire From The Gods, Hellyeah, Dead Kennedys, Escape The Fate, September Mourning, Through Fire, and more. Doll Skin capped off the year snagging a spot on Alternative Press’s list of “7 of the Best Rising Bands Under 21”, before settling in to record their new album.

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 (17), Guitarist Alex Snowden (17), Bassist Nicole Rich (18), and Drummer Meghan Herring (20) 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 the Dead Kennedys, Social Distortion, HELLYEAH, DRI, Escape The Fate, Lacey Sturm and many more throughout the country.

Manic Pixie Dream Girl is released June 16th on EMP Label Group.
