Barb Wire Dolls are one of the most vital new bands in music today, representing all that is inspiring and furious about rock and roll. Hailing from an artist commune on the island of Crete, the band sold everything they owned and left crisis-ridden Greece in 2010 for Los Angeles, at the invite of legendary KROQ DJ Rodney Bingenheimer. Upon their arrival in California, Barb Wire Dolls immediately sold out the world famous Roxy Theatre in Hollywood, boasting a live show that is second to none. The band has gone on to melt ears & hearts on 700 stages across 22 countries in just under five years — consistently selling out club dates in America, the UK and Europe. Fronted by the whip-smart vocal and fashion icon Isis Queen (named after the Greek Goddess herself), Barb Wire Dolls intelligently weave sub-genres of punk, grunge, and metal, producing an urgent sound that is truly unique. The group's dynamic musicianship is blasted forth by former pro surfer & skateboarder Pyn Doll on lead guitar, Krash Doll on drums, Iriel Blaque on bass, and Remmington on rhythm guitar.
In 2012, the band encamped themselves in Nirvana noise-guru Steve Albini's recording studio to produce their debut, Slit, over the span of just two days. Garnering critical acclaim and comparisons to the likes of Nirvana, Blondie, and the Ramones. Few female-fronted punk bands in history have made a more immediate and tangible impact on their contemporary musical landscape. Apart from touring on their own name and playing main stages at major festivals around the world including Riot Fest (USA), Rebellion (UK), Mighty Sounds (CZ), Brincadeira (SP), Foud' Rock (FR), and Bochum Total (GER), Barb Wire Dolls have also co-headlined dates with the likes of GBH, Fear, Mike Watt, Sham 69, Discharge, Cockney Rejects, The Ataris, Murder Junkies, CJ Ramone, 999, Status Quo, Mushroomhead, and Candlebox, as well as playing direct tour support for Jello Biafra, NOFX, Descendents, Bouncing Souls, and Steel Panther.
