    The groundbreaking Barb Wire Dolls - who started out in a Greek artist commune, moved to Los Angeles, performed on over 650 stages in 22 countries in just 4 years - are a DIY phenomenon with a story that reads like no other.

    The four-piece/female-fronted Barb Wire Dolls first formed at The Ikarus artist commune on the island of Crete in 2010 in a remote mountain village by songwriters Isis Queen (vocals) and Pyn Doll (guitar), later adding drummer Krash Doll and a female bassist. With Greece in political turmoil and bankruptcy, allowing no real opportunities for musicians, fate and destiny intervened when LA's world famous 106.7 KROQ radio DJ Rodney Bingenheimer (the first to play Ramones, Blondie, Guns N' Roses, Nirvana) discovered the band and started playing the bands’ demo EP non stop on KROQ's influential airwaves. Bingenheimer invited the Greek band to perform in Hollywood, and within weeks Barb Wire Dolls sold everything they owned and moved to Venice Beach in Los Angeles to chase their dream. Then something magical happened...

    Barb Wire Dolls became the first Greek rock band to ever perform in the USA: “Grecian imports Barb Wire Dolls have taken the Sunset Strip by storm” declared the Roxy Theatre as the bands' debut show in America at the legendary venue sold out. "Barb Wire Dolls are the most important punk invasion to the U.S. since the Sex Pistols" announced PMP as the word spread rapidly about Barb Wire Dolls, who subsequently ignited and spearheaded a totally new music scene on the once-wild streets of LA. "There is a buzz on the streets of LA, it’s loud, it’s nasty and it’s hitting the region like a tornado. The music they played is so refreshing and full of an energy the punk scene needs desperately" writes Big Wheel magazine while Guitar World credits the band as "The Return Of Punk".

    “I was in shock and awe after watching the living spirit of rock ‘n’ roll embody itself through Pyn’s guitar and Isis’s performance and voice…Isis Queen has the most incredible voice. I swear the purity of her voice vibrated my entire body. They embody the true spirit of punk…they are the real deal.”- Tom Zutaut/A&R mogul

    Starting in January of 2012, Barb Wire Dolls hit the road hard touring relentlessly first back and forth across America, and next all over the world. The band with a grassroots approach, created a loyal fan base consisting of punks, metal heads, and street rockers of all ages, proudly calling themselves the 'Street Generation'. With integrity, scorching anthems, and a sense of urgency, Barb Wire Dolls' themes of unity against the outside world and "inner-anarchy" struck a responsive chord with the global rock community as did their sheer emotive power on stage. By keeping true to their punk ideals, the band became the biggest DIY success story in decades, selling out club dates globally, headlining major festivals, and receiving international critical acclaim for their raging-guitar, hook-filled classic debut album 'Slit'.

    Two days — that’s all it took for Barb Wire Dolls to record their debut 'Slit', and to satisfy the gritty punk rock taste they craved, the band turned to Nirvana noise guru Steve Albini to record live and direct to 16-track 2" analog tape at his Electrical Audio studio in Chicago. Barb Wire Dolls resuscitated the exhilaration and abandon of 1970's punk with some grunge stylings on 'Slit', ignoring anything the genre had to offer post-1989. In early 2013 the band received wide critical acclaim and embraced a hail of hype as critics across the globe took their first liberating listen. "Slit is the best punk rock record since Nirvana's "Bleach" (Music + Riots), "Literally paralyzed by the absurd power...'Slit' will stand the test of time. 9 out of 10 Stars" (Ox Fanzine), "Top Ten of the Year" (Maximum Rocknroll), and Heavy Hard Metalmania writes "A pure massive H-bomb, a nuclear sound wave, probably the best punk album of the last two decades".

    "Barb Wire Dolls have emerged as the new voice of real punk rock...with (their) mesmerizing, spellbinding exhibition of attitude-laden, high-octane punk rock." - Metal Assault

    After seeing the band live for the first time in New York City, Mickey Leigh (musician/author/brother of Joey Ramone) exclaimed, “Barb Wire Dolls are the most explosive and exciting new punk band I’ve seen in decades!” while Jesse Malin (D Generation/owner of NYC’s Bowery Electric) stated that Barb Wire Dolls are the first band he’s seen that capture the Bad Brains’ (legendary DC punk pioneers) live chaotic energy on stage. Music Entertainment magazine writes “Barb Wire Dolls are the new face of Punk. The Dolls deliver real authentic punk rock with 70’s CBGB style swagger with an oversexed frontwoman who makes Debbie Harry in her 70’s prime look downright homely, while singing like Patti Smith channeling Johnny Rotten. Punk’s not dead…not as long as Barb Wire Dolls have breath”.

    "Barb Wire Dolls destroy stages!" - Joe Sib/ALT 98.7FM

    Barb Wire Dolls are currently hitting fans all around the world with a musical force and fury not experienced in decades. Fronted by the "The Queen of Punk Today" (Jurnallica magazine), the band's setting the world on fire, whipping audiences into a frenzy with their sexually-charged, must-see live performance. Barb Wire Dolls have been continuously touted by the global press as 'the most exciting band in 20 years' and that's because they are bringing back the true spirit of rock and roll for a new generation to experience. 

    "Barb Wire Dolls are kinda like a girl-fronted Green Day. They could become huge." - Bouncing Souls

    Members of the Sex Pistols, Blondie, Motorhead, Black Flag, Guns 'N' Roses, Stooges, L7, Aerosmith, Sonic Youth, UK Subs, Minutemen, Germs, Kreator, and countless others have experienced a Dolls performance and the band was chosen as direct tour support for punk icons Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedy's), Descendents, NOFX, and Bouncing Souls. Receiving high billing status quickly on the touring circuit, Barb Wire Dolls also co-headlined dates with punk pioneers GBH, Sham 69, Discharge, Cockney Rejects, and 999.

    “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, Guns N’ 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” -Sugarbuzz magazine

    Apart from rave reviews, awards, a Number One single in Brazil, a Top Ten single in Peru (and multiple charting singles on European radio stations), already five books have been released by photographers on Barb Wire Dolls, three 7" singles (including a split with OFF!) have all but sold out, and the band to date has graced the covers of over a dozen magazines world wide. Four live albums have been released including a double live album recorded in Berlin, Germany. 

    A new as-of-yet untitled full-length sophomore studio album is in the works for a late 2015 release with a world tour to follow.
