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.
