2016 was a big year for Phoenix, AZ Pop-Punk quartet DOLL SKIN. After being touted by the press with their 2015 debut EP as some kind of a millennial second coming of The Runaways, Vocalist Sydney Dolezal, Guitarist Alex Snowden, Bassist Nicole Rich, and Drummer Meghan Herring went on to defy the odds and destroy expectations, showing the World that pure Rock fury had no age requirement. And even though the band went into their collective career as teenagers, they emerged as a tried and true World class touring Rock act, hitting the road and lighting up stages in 2016 with the likes of OTEP (Twice, the first time as an opener, second as main support), Metal Allegiance, September Mourning, Hellyeah, Escape The Fate, Stitched Up Heart, Fire From the Gods and more, appearing on Shiprocked 2016, even testing their mettle on several runs as a headlining act. And with the release of their debut full-length 2016’s IN YOUR FACE (AGAIN), produced by Megadeth bassist David Ellefson, the band took their rightful place among the Hard Rock elite. After meeting at the Phoenix SCHOOL OF ROCK in 2013, the fledgling band came to the attention of Ellefson, who took them under his wing, and together they began a sonic assault on the West Coast, playing shows with Social Distortion, Green Jello, DRI, SLUNT, and many more, and set out to work on their Ellefson produced debut studio release. 2015 saw the Worldwide release of Doll Skin’s debut EP In Your Face, through Ellefson’s own imprint EMP LABEL GROUP, distributed via Megaforce Records (also known as the launching pad for legendary big 4 thrash bands Metallica and Anthrax and many more.) and Cargo Records in Europe, and set Doll Skin on a trajectory that saw the band hit the road for the majority of the year and beyond, followed up with their debut full length in 2016, again through EMP, this time partnered with eOne. Since the release of In Your Face (Again), Doll Skin’s colorful brand of Pop-Punk infused Hard Rock has garnered massive worldwide press and airplay through four singles, “Family of Strangers”, “Wring Me Out”, “Let’s Be Honest”, and “Furious Fixation”, including 2 months of repeat spins on Rodney on the Roq on the World Famous KROQ, grabbing rotation and winning cage matches all over the US, topping playlists in Japan, and finding a home on playlists across Europe and the US, with the album not once, but TWICE, being most added at CMJ Metal Radio. The band topped off the year with an appearance in AP Magazine’s 2016 list of “7 of the Best Rising Bands Under 21”, and winning STONE CHROME RADIO’s LISTENERS CHOICE AWARD for “Female Fronted Band of the Year”, and will start 2017 off on an equally high note, performing at the annual NAMM JAMM in Anaheim, CA with Buckcherry and Like a Storm, as they prepare to release their sophomore LP on EMP LABEL GROUP in Summer 2017
