About the album

Recorded at Sonic Ranch (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Ministry, Gogol Bordello) and NRG (Motörhead, Foo Fighters, No Doubt) studios, Barb Wire Doll’s sophomore album 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). The ten song album 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. As members of Motörhead Music, Barb Wire Dolls are represented by Lemmy’s long-time manager Todd Singerman, Motörhead's booking agents, and parent label UDR/Warner Music Group. Desperate’s release through Motörhead Music serves as an edgy, thrilling first chapter in the life of a label whose mission is to present the most fiery new bands in rock and roll.

Fronted by the whip-smart vocal and fashion icon Isis Queen (named after the Greek Goddess herself), Barb Wire Dolls intelligently weave sub-genres of punk, grunge, and metal, producing an urgent sound that is truly unique. The group's dynamic musicianship is blasted forth by former pro surfer & skateboarder Pyn Doll on lead guitar, Krash Doll on drums, Iriel Blaque on bass, and Remmington on rhythm guitar. In 2012, the band encamped themselves in Nirvana noise-guru Steve Albini's recording studio to produce their debut, Slit, over the span of just two days. Garnering critical acclaim and comparisons to the likes of Nirvana, Blondie, and the Ramones, Slit and its chart-topping lead single 'Revolution' powered the band to almighty festival headliner status (shredding fest-stages atop 12 countries), while simultaneously gracing the covers of 15 magazines. Few female-fronted punk bands in history have made a more immediate and tangible impact on their contemporary musical landscape.

Desperate is being released world-wide this summer in conjunction with the band's debut performance at Germany's Wacken Open Air, the largest metal festival in the world. Out to smash all misconceptions about women in rock today, Barb Wire Dolls' cultural and musical immediacy is not to be missed.
