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.
Electrifying rock of this magnitude did not go unnoticed by the elder statesman of the Sunset Strip, the incomparable, irreplaceable Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead. After seeing Barb Wire Dolls live, Lemmy took an immediate interest in the band and placed them under his supportive wing. Disgusted with the current state of rock music and its lack of true rebels, Lemmy saw that the Dolls were the obvious choice to help carry the torch of rock and roll as part of his label, Motörhead Music.
“Barb Wire Dolls are the most explosive and exciting new punk band I’ve seen in decades!” – Mickey Leigh/brother of the late Joey Ramone and ex-tour manager for the Ramones.
Being heralded as “the most important punk invasion to the U.S. since the Sex Pistols” (PMP) and receiving the “Best Live Punk Act” award in 2012 (Indy PRN), Barb Wire Dolls have rapidly become the critics and fans new choice as leaders of today’s new punk explosion.
“Like a shot heard around the world, Barb Wire Dolls are a true-to-the-genre punk band, connecting with audiences around the world.” – Guitar World magazine.
