Since their formation 15 years ago, The Dollyrots have played over a thousand shows, toured the World on their own and with some of their idols, and released five studio albums and a live CD/DVD. The last 2 releases have peaked in the Top 20 of Billboard’s Heatseeker’s chart completely independently and DIY. After a debut on Lookout! Records and two efforts through Joan Jett’s Blackheart Records the band decided to go completely independent and are now cutting their 6th studio LP through PledgeMusic. The new Whiplash Splash is set for a March 2017 street date with distro through MVD. Pre-order it HERE.
Some words from the band:
It’s about that time again! We’re baking a little bun in the oven and are determined to get an album recorded before her due date in November. This will be our 6th studio album and 4th fan funded project. If you’re just getting to know us we’ve really fallen in love with the process of making our albums WITH our fans. In the early days of the band we were fortunate to put out records on great indie labels but have since determined DIY is the way to go for us and our fans.
We finished recording the new album with our long-time producer John Fields in early September. Our Pledgers have been along for the adventure from start to finish. We’re sharing demos, photos and TONS of footage from recording in the studio and the process of making the album. All the while preparing for our baby grrl’s arrival…. it’s getting a little crazy around here!
Every day we’re still so grateful that we get to make music that makes your life richer. Thank you for helping to make our wildest dreams a reality. We’re doing our best to make your new favorite album, and we know you’re gonna LOVE Whiplash Splash!
With sweaty show hugs,
Kelly & Luis
