"Family Of Strangers", the new video from the Arizona-based all-female rock quartet DOLL SKIN, can be seen below. The clip was directed by Michael Thompson and Ty Sugg of TyMike Films, who say: "Working with DOLL SKIN was a great experience. Not only are they very talented, they have great chemistry that shines through their music and performance. They are naturals in front of the camera." Meghan Herring, DOLL SKIN's drummer, adds: "'Family of Strangers' is the first song DOLL SKIN ever wrote. Over time, it has evolved into this powerhouse of a song about how a room full of strangers at a rock concert can feel like a family because of their shared love for music. We're so excited to show you guys this video!! Enjoy!"
A collection of six powerful tracks, DOLL SKIN's "In Your Face" EP is being released on October 30 through EMP Label Group, an imprint created by MEGADETH bassist (and author) David Ellefson. EMP's music will be brought to the world via legendary label Megaforce, also known as the launching pad for legendary thrash bands METALLICA and ANTHRAX and many more.
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."
DOLL SKIN 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, DOLL SKIN's members — 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, D.R.I., SLUNT, and many more, through Arizona, California, and the West Coast.
