Female fronted five piece hard hitting rock and roll band Barb Wire Dolls is heading to the Seattle area, making a stop at Louie G’s Pizza in Fife. This is the second time in less than six months that the band hits the Pacific Northwest, having recently played the Vans Warped Tour at CenturyLink Field earlier this summer.
Based out of Crete, Greece, Barb Wire Dolls is comprised of Isis Queen (vocals), Pyn Doll (lead guitar), Remmington Pearce (rhythm guitar), Iriel Blaque (bass) and Krash Doll (drums). They are currently touring in support of their latest release, Rub My Mind.
The band was first noticed by KROQ radio host Rodney Bingenheimer, and the band briefly relocated to Los Angeles. Barb Wire Dolls performed residency shows at iconic venues such as The Whisky A Go Go, The Viper Room, On the Rox and the Doll Hut. The band has a large global following, and has played over 800 shows in 25 countries since first coming to Los Angeles. The band, after releasing self-releasing their debut EP and full length records, were spotted by the legendary Lemmy Kilmister of the heavy metal band, Motorhead. Kilmister signed Barb Wire Dolls to the Motorhead Music label and released Desperate in 2016 to much acclaim and fanfare.
“Lemmy told me to never compromise, give 100% at every show, and to never change for anyone or anything. I’ll remember his advice forever. It’s the highest honor to have him believe in you.” – Isis Queen
The band recorded Rub My Mind in just two days at the Rancho De Luna studio out in the Joshua Tree desert. The album was produced and mixed by Jay Baumgardner. It takes only two spins before the hooks are under your skin. Led by Isis Queen’s dynamic vocals and flamboyant presence, the lyrics and songs suddenly become part of who you are and who you wish to be. Rub My Mind is full of the melodic rage of lead guitarist and former pro surfer and skateboarder Pyn Doll, the crunchy rhythm guitar of Remmington, the pulsating bass of Iriel Blaque, and the Bonham-esque power of Krash Doll on drums. Rub My Mind is an exciting retro cocktail of late ‘70s influenced punk and ’90s grunge refracted through the prism of 2017. It sounds like “then and now” all at once.
“We believe in our music, message, and the people out there that need something new, fresh and dangerous.” – Isis Queen
As one of the highlights and best bands on the the last Warped Tour, Barb Wire Dolls has recently gained many new fans. Based on the strength of their solid performances, the band, out on the road with Russia’s SVETLANAS and Korea’s 57, will be packing every venue they visit along the way.
