One-Eyed Doll brings their brand of mayhem to NJ with support from Doll Skin. This is an early show so don’t miss a moment of it.
Doll Skin will hit Brooklyn hard with their brand of Hard Rock and be joined by Next To None.
Thanks to a friend in media I first learned of Doll Skin about a year ago with their debut album “In Your Face”. I felt that the ladies were a modern-day Runaways and have tried to be as supportive as possible when I am aware of their goings on. They keep a very healthy touring itinerary which is awesome to see and that makes me share this latest bit of news with you all below. Dig in.
The Press Release:
Phoenix pop-punk favorites **DOLL SKIN** have announced the release date for their upcoming sophomore LP **MANIC PIXIE DREAM GIRL** , in stores June 16th via **EMP LABEL GROUP/AMPED** , and in Europe via **EMP/SPV**. Produced and Mixed by Cage9 frontman **Evan Rodaniche** (Lacey Sturm, Powerman 5000), MANIC is the follow up to Doll Skin’s EMP debut, 2016’s IN YOUR FACE (AGAIN), Produced by Grammy Award winning Megadeth bassist David Ellefson, which garnered massive Worldwide press, spawned multiple singles including, “Family of Strangers”, “Let’s Be Honest”, and “Furious Fixation”. 2016 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, capping off the year with a spot on **Alternative Press’s** list of “7 of the Best Rising Bands Under 21”, before settling in to record their new record.
Not to be outdone by last year, the band kicked off 2017 in equally notable fashion with a packed hometown show supporting **John 5** , and the announcement that the band would join the lineup of the **2017 VANS WARPED TOUR** from June 16-25, appearing on the “Hard Rock” Stage alongside Metal and Punk Icons including **The Dickies, Municipal Waste, Strung Out, The Adolescents, The Ataris, TSOL, (and their previous Otep tour-mates FIRE FROM THE GODS)** and more .

Otep brings her “Generation Doom” tour to NYC and as support will find Lacey Sturm, Doll Skin, September Mourning and Through Fire. Don’t miss this fun night of smashing tunes.
Just the other day I was in a friend’s music shop and one of his reps had asked if I knew of a band called Doll Skin yet and I admitted that I hadn’t. He mentioned them being a new band that was on the EMP Label Group which is an imprint of Megadeth and is co-founded by Dave Ellefson of the band. A CD is on its way to the Metal Command HQ for review so stay tuned for that. I’m posting this to let you know that the ladies are heading out on their first ever headlining tour (two dates will be supporting the Dead Kennedy’s on this list as well). Check out the poster, the press copy and dates and then I will return with some additional thoughts.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I know what you are saying my readers, “Why ohh why are you teasing us with the headlining dates for an up and coming band that I might love and they aren’t even passing through my town!!!!”. Now before you think me a cruel and insidious sort, let me tell you that the aforementioned “Generation Doom” tour with Otep is heading right towards many of our regions so look up those dates which I discussed HERE and get yourself a ticket. You know you will want to arrive nice and early to catch their set and wish them luck at the merchandise table. I’ve also embedded a link to their EP which you can purchase on Amazon.com right below. Good luck on the tour ladies and I hope to see you rocking in the Big Metal Apple.
