GREEK GIRL-FRONTED PUNKS 'BARB WIRE DOLLS' INVADE AMERICA AND IGNITE A NEW PUNK ROCK REVOLUTION INSPIRED BY '77 PUNK
Fueled by a demand for change, a new punk rock revolution inspired by the original seeds of '77 Punk (Sex Pistols, Ramones, Clash, Blondie) is exploding onto the music scene, and this 'back to the roots' loud, wild, and furious attack is being welcomed openly this time around. Hailing from the Birthplace of Democracy, Greece’s first ever punk import to the USA, a band that in just a few months ignited and spearheaded an entirely new punk movement on the once wild streets of Los Angeles, is the girl-fronted fire-like phenomenon known as Barb Wire Dolls. "Their (Barb Wire Dolls) music carries a message, much like the anarchy of the Sex Pistols, but without the “no future for you” aspect of it" writes the UK's Mudkiss Magazine. "Greece is on the verge of bankruptcy but before they went belly up they sent us Barb Wire Dolls, a punk rock band deeply influenced by New York and London in the 1970's" writes Rock NYC. Being compared live on stage to "a cross between Blondie and The Sex Pistols" and described as “kinda like a girl-fronted Green Day”, Barb Wire Dolls made history by being the first punk band from Greece to play in America at their sold out show at the Roxy Theatre on the Sunset Strip. "This is just what the world needs now, a good girl-fronted punk band" says Charlotte Cooper of the UK's Subways.
"Barb Wire Dolls are going to take over the world. The world needs their music and attitude. Everything is so lame and boring and these punks are a breath of fresh air. Take it from me, I've been around and experienced and lived all the scenes from the past 30 years from London to Seattle. I feel the change and it's called Barb Wire Dolls! They are the next fucking Nirvana!" After being discovered and played non-stop on L.A.'s world famous KROQ radio station by Rodney Bingenheimer (aka Rodney On The Roq) who has been instrumental in launching careers of such bands as The Sex Pistols, The Ramones, The Clash, Blondie, Nirvana and numerous other popular 'take it to the street' rock bands" writes Dainty Seventyseven and Hollywood Weekly Magazine about Barb Wire Dolls and while still living in an artist commune on the Greek island of Crete, the band sold all and flew across the Atlantic to the bright city lights of Los Angeles' Sunset Strip where L.A. Punk (Germs, X, The Bags) first started. "Every few years or so a band comes along that changes the music landscape. They are different from the other bands that are out there. They bring something new and exciting to an otherwise generic music scene that the public has grown tired of. The Beatles did this, The Sex Pistols did this, Gun's and Roses did this, Nirvana did this. But for the past 20 years no band has been able to stand out from their predecessors. No band has been able to re-ignite the music scene, to bring back the energy it once had....that is until now. With their sound, their look and their attitude, Barb Wire Dolls are going to do what no band has been able to do within the last two decades...take the music industry by storm" writes Sugarbuzz Magazine.
"Look Out America, here come the Barb Wire Dolls!" - Punk Globe Magazine. With three independent releases out and after multiple record label offers, Barb Wire Dolls signed with legendary A&R executive Tom Zutaut (GNR, Metallica, Motley Crue, X, PIL) for management and are keeping with their D.I.Y. ethic for future releases. A new 7" Single and full-length album are set to be released in the fall of 2012 while the band continues to discover the States. With a "search and destroy" attitude they are giving all they got taking their punk rock gospel on the road proclaiming: "the revolution has begun, so what the hell are you gonna do?!" Get ready to rock, riot, and rip it up 'cause Barb Wire Dolls and the New Wave of Punk may be hitting up your town next.
