Hailing from an artist commune on the island of Crete, the band sold everything they owned and left crisis-ridden Greece in 2010 for their current home in Los Angeles, at the invite of aforementioned KROQ DJ Rodney Bingenheimer. Upon their arrival in California, BARB WIRE DOLLS immediately sold out the world famous Roxy Theatre in Hollywood, boasting a live show that is second to none. Electrifying rock of this magnitude did not go unnoticed by the elder statesman of the Sunset Strip, the incomparable, irreplaceable Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead. After seeing BARB WIRE DOLLS live, Lemmy took an immediate interest in the band and placed them under his supportive wing.
Don’t confuse BARB WIRE DOLLS as just another local act – since forming, this international group has gone on to melt ears and hearts on 700 stages across 22 countries in just under five years – consistently selling out club dates in America, the UK and Europe.This year, the band even performed at Germany’s Wacken Open Air, the largest metal festival in the world. But home is where the heart is – BARB WIRE DOLLS became the house band at the Whisky within a year of migrating to the United States.
Take a look at the brand new “Heart Attack” video now, directed by music writer and photographer Steve Appleford, filmed at the Whisky: https://youtu.be/YKksirf3Mck

BARB WIRE DOLLS are one of the most vital new bands in music today, representing all that is inspiring and furious about rock and roll. The band intelligently weaves sub-genres of punk, grunge, and metal, producing an urgent sound that is truly unique. Desperate contains gripping rock tracks, empowering anthems, and hard-edged thrashers, all performed with the classic punk rock energy the band has become internationally known for.
Recorded at Sonic Ranch (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Ministry, Gogol Bordello) and NRG (Motörhead, Foo Fighters, No Doubt) studios, Desperate was produced and mixed by Grammy award-winning producer Jay Baumgardner (Bush, Evanescence, Lacuna Coil) and mastered by Grammy award-winning mastering engineer Howie Weinberg (Nirvana‘s Nevermind, Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ Blood Sugar Sex Magik, U2‘s Pop).
BARB WIRE DOLLS‘ cultural and musical immediacy is not to be missed.

BARB WIRE DOLLS online:
“BARB WIRE DOLLS are the most explosive and exciting new punk band I’ve seen in decades! They are gonna change the face of music and save rock and roll as we know it!”
– Mickey Leigh/brother of Joey Ramone
“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.”
– Music Entertainment
“If you were bummed that you missed out on the Sex Pistols and Black Flag because you were only one, or not even born yet, here’s your chance to catch one of the best bands playing that style today. From their music to their attitude, BARB WIRE DOLLS embody that same spirit of the late ’70s punk scene.”
– Washington Times
