Megadeth bassist launches label, signs female rock band

Doll Skin band

Official press release:

The music scene is desperate for a new collective of young ladies who know how to rock, and Doll Skin has arrived to fill that void. The Arizona-based quartet is ready to battle tyranny and oppression with adrenaline fueled rock anthems. Their mission begins with the release of their debut EP, In Your Face, on October 30th.

A collection of six powerful tracks, In Your Face is being released through EMP Records, an imprint created by legendary Megadeth bassist (and author) David Ellefson. EMP's music will be brought to the world via legendary label Megaforce Records, also known as the launching pad for legendary big 4 thrash bands Metallica and Anthrax and many more.

Audio: Doll Skin "Family of Strangers"

Ellefson says "when I was first introduced to Doll Skin, I knew there was something really special there. Through working with them as a producer, it became even more apparent what these girls were capable of. I'm really excited to be working with them, and able to unleash them on the world, through Megaforce, no less."

Vocalist Dolezal echoes David's sentiment. "Working with David has been one of the most amazing experiences you could imagine. He's such a cool guy, and a great producer, and has created such amazing opportunities for us. Every day it's kinda like, pinch me, ya know? We're so excited to finish this record and finally release it."

Formed in Arizona in 2013, vocalist Sydney Dolezal (15), guitarist Alex Snowden (16), bassist Nicole Rich (17), and drummer Meghan Herring (19) met while attending the Scottsdale School of Rock. Meghan made the initial connection when bringing the girls together to compete in Rock Revelation Battle of the Bands. After catching the attention of Ellefson, who was one of the competition's judges, the band began a sonic assault on the West Coast, playing shows with Social Distortion, Green Jello, DRI, SLUNT, and many more, through Arizona, California, and the West Coast. A full list of tour dates can be found below, and the band recently wrapped production on a video for "Family Of Strangers", which will be released later this fall.

There is absolutely no possible way in hell a teenage girl band will be relevant in any way.
No to mention how retarded their Hot Topic sensibilities are.

A lot of bassists lately thinking people give a shit about them, weird. Also no way an all girl band can write anything that isn't dog shit.

These aren't even creative you mysogonist fcks. Also webby, female imbues their sex. Like a plant or an animal. They're women, or since they're underage maybe girls. But not female. Since when has Lambgoat been a secret Men's Rights message board? Doug jokes are out but give us something newer than MFK. Ya'll idiots are half steppin.
