Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 6, 2006 -–
Acclaimed pop punksters The Dollyrots will hit the road this summer with the Vans Warped Tour starting June 21 in Nashville. The trio will join the fabled Warped cavalcade with a serious buzz generated by network TV and radio exposure as well as rave reviews for the album “Eat My Heart Out.”
The Dollyrots will also be performing songs from the highly-anticipated new CD, “Because I’m Awesome,” considered their best effort yet. The female-fronted group is putting final touches on the album, which is expected to drop this Fall, though the band may hand out some sneak previews during some of their Warped Tour sets. The defiant and empowering title track, “Because I’m Awesome,” seems destined to become a signature song for the group, as well as a catch phrase among their fans.
Regarded as one of the best indie bands in Los Angeles, The Dollyrots may not have that distinction for long as major label action appears imminent.
The Dollyrots (http://www.dollyrots.com or http://www.myspace.com/thedollyrots) are riding a wave of critical kudos from their SXSW appearance while reviewers are still palpitating over “Eat My Heart Out.” Reviews from various publications had comments such as “Sheer pop perfection…”, “One listen and you will be hooked…”, “The Dollyrots are the real deal…”, “Tight, sweet and crunchy bursts of punky power pop…” “Infectious, incredibly fun and begging to be played repeatedly …”, and “Different and likable.” See their way-cool website for full reviews, interviews, song clips, vids, etc., including a Spinal Tap-like mini-rockumentary created by the clever folks at Blender Magazine.
The new album, tour and glowing reviews aren’t the only reason the band is rapidly hitting critical mass. The Dollyrots are also exploding on TV and radio. The group, consisting of Kelly, Luis and Amy, proved they were ready for primetime as they acted as well as performed on a recent episode of CBS-TVs top-rated “CSI: New York.” They are also seen performing their song “Feed Me, Pet Me” on a national Hewlett-Packard commercial and have appeared on several TV talk shows. Furthermore, they are getting airplay on stations including influential KROQ, Indie 103.1 and KXLU 88.9.
