Formed in Arizona in 2013, DOLL SKIN‘s members — vocalist Sydney Dolezal (15), guitarist Alex Snowden (16), bassist Nicole Rich (17), and drummer Meghan Herring (19) — met while attending the Scottsdale School of Rock. Meghan made the initial connection when bringing the girls together to compete in Rock Revelation Battle Of The Bands. After catching the attention of Ellefson, who was one of the competition’s judges, the band began a sonic assault on the West Coast, playing shows with SOCIAL DISTORTION, GREEN JELLO, D.R.I., SLUNT, and many more, through Arizona, California, and the West Coast.
“It’s refreshing to hear a young band like DOLL SKIN carrying the torch of classic punk rock.” Greg Hetson (Circle Jerks/Bad Religion)
Hardly classic punk rock, but infectious alterno rock nonetheless. Throw this EP up in the air and it will fall somewhere between the Bob Rock-produced Veruca Salt and Cherri Bomb. (Gaz Tidey/Über Röck)
