Barb Wire Dolls Bio:

The Barb Wire Dolls are a US-American punk rock band with Greek roots. The band formed in Crete, Greece in 2010 with the members Isis Queen and Pyn Doll while living in the Ikarus Artist Commune in Avdou.[1] The lineup later consisted of Isis Queen on vocals, guitarist Pyn Doll (also the band’s principal songwriter and professional surfer), bassist JayJay Doll, and drummer Krash Doll. The group’s debut EP, Punk the Fussies!, was self-released in 2010.[1]

After playing many times in Greece, including several festivals, the band came to the attention of KROQ radio host Rodney Bingenheimer and relocated to Los Angeles, California in December 2010, where they played a sold out U.S. debut show at The Roxy Theatre on Sunset Strip. The band also played residencies at The Viper Room, On The Rox, and the Doll Hut. In 2011 they were spotted by Tom Zutaut with whom they worked with for a period of 6 months.[1][2][3] After self-releasing the album consisting of 2 EP’s Fuck the Pussies in 2011, the band released the Steve Albini-engineered album Slit on CD and on vinyl LP in 2012 with distributor Darla Records.[4] The recording of the album was funded via Kickstarter.[2]

The band toured throughout 2012 and half of 2013 in the U.S. playing over 300 shows including headlining the festivals Texas Showdown, Ink Life, Brincadeira, and Rock4Unity. In May 2013 the band started their first European tour to promote Slit. The band released Slit in 2013 on Wolverine Records in Europe as limited Vinyl LP and CD. The band headlined festivals in twelve European countries including the UK’s BBA Taking Control, Germany’s Kreutziger Streetfest, Pirate Satellite, Weihnachtspogo, Sommerloch, France’s Foud’ Rock, Slovenia’s Gala Hala, Serbia’s To Be Punk, Greece’s Nakas and Ikarus, Czech Republic’s Keltska Noc & Vine City, and Slovakia’s Happy Punk festival.

In addition the band has played on the main stages at Rebellion, Mighty Sounds, Fest Pod Parou, and Back To Future music festivals. Barb Wire Dolls have played over six hundred shows selling out multiple club dates in over twenty two countries including co-headlining dates with GBH, Sham 69, Discharge, Cockney Rejects, Status Quo, 999, Murder Junkies, Candlebox, Mushroomhead and played direct support for Jello Biafra, NOFX, Descendents, and Bouncing Souls. Barb Wire Dolls performances have attracted members of the Sex Pistols, Motorhead, Black Flag, Guns ‘N’ Roses, L7, Dead Kennedys, Aerosmith, Turbonegro, UK Subs, Flogging Molly, Sonic Youth, The Cult, Fear, Casualties, Television, Die Toten Hosen, TSOL, Bob Gruen, Kreator, and Frances Bean Cobain. The band does everything DIY and works with select record distributors to release their albums.
