This is the second Shiprocked for Doll Skin, an all female band from Phoenix, Arizona. The members are Sydney Dolezal (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Alex Snowden (lead guitar, backing vocals), Nicole Rich (bass, backing vocals), and Meghan Herring (drums, backing vocals). In 2013, the group entered a battle of the bands contest where one of the judges was David Ellefson, bassist for Megadeth. He was so impressed with them that he soon became their manager and producer. As the girls say, “When David Ellefson says you’ve got it, you must have it.”
I had the pleasure of interviewing the ladies while on Shiprocked. It is difficult to not get caught up in their enthusiasm and effervescence. Click below to hear the interview in its entirely.
