Grunge punk quintet BARB WIRE DOLLS are preparing to kick off their U.S. headline tour, beginning tomorrow, November 11 in Laguna Niguel, CA. In anticipation of the tour launch, the band is revealing a brand new music video for their track “Blind To Your Misery”, which features footage of the band’s performance at this past summer’s Wacken Open Air festival in Germany. Check out the raucous, all-energy video now, exclusively via Loudwire
“Misery loves company,” states BARB WIRE DOLLS frontwoman Isis Queen. “Everybody wants to bring you down so they can control you. This song is a big “Fuck you, I won’t do what you tell me!” in a new way. Find the power you have within and stand up for yourself so you can leave the misery to others, and live the highest version of your life.
Over a dozen record labels wanted to sign us and change us, but not until Lemmy saw us live and told us “don’t change a thing” did we immediately say “yes” and create our own destiny. Escape your fate and re-create! You have the power.”
BARB WIRE DOLLS were recently included in the “We Are Not Afraid” campaign video that also includes appearances from Sting, Bruce Springsteen, Ringo Starr, Joe Walsh, Brian Wilson and more in awareness of the global refugee crisis and victims of religious and political violence. Watch here and read a Rolling Stone news post about the video here.

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.
Hailing from an artist commune on the island of Crete, BARB WIRE DOLLS 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.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.
BARB WIRE DOLLS‘ cultural and musical immediacy is not to be missed.
