"Punk rock all the way to the bone" - VICE

Signed by Lemmy himself to Motörhead Music, Greece's biggest rock export, Barb Wire Dolls moved to Los Angeles where they sold out shows at Roxy Theatre, Whisky A Go-Go, Viper Room before taking on the rest of America and Europe. Barb Wire Dolls have toured with NOFX, Descendants, GBH, Jello Biafra, and have played main stages at Riot Fest, Wacken, Rebellion, Uprising, and many more around the world. On Vans Warped Tour all summer in 2017, Barb Wire Dolls are releasing their 3rd full length album 'Rub My Mind' on July 28 that was recorded at the iconic Rancho De La Luna studio in Joshua Tree, California.

"Raw power, like The Stooges" - LA Weekly

With already over 850 shows in 25 countries (7 tours of the USA & 7 UK/European tours), Barb Wire Dolls have become the hottest new band on the global rock scene.

"Like a shot heard around the world, Barb Wire Dolls are a true-to-the-genre punk band" - Guitar World
Russia's SVETLANAS, the "most dangerous band in the world", are the best hard driving, down and dirty punk rock hardcore band around nowadays. Svetlanas have toured extensively across America and Europe and have played Vans Warped Tour, Rebellion and numerous other festivals around the world. Their 4th full length "This is Moscow Not LA" is going to be released this June 2nd via Rad Girlfriend Records (USA).

Their upcoming album was recorded at Josh Homme's (Queens Of The Stone Age) studio right after Nick Oliveri (Queens of the Stone Age, Kyuss, Mondo Generator, The Dwarves, Bloodclot) officially joined the lineup.

"Olga has quite an unusual voice, kind of like an angry cornered mongoose"
-Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedy's legendary singer)

"Their music will be listened to by 40 millions of Americans."
-Gene Simmons (KISS)

"Olga Svetlanas is Henry Rollins in female form."
-Punk in Vegas

"If you don't know the SVETLANAS you definitely have a problem."
-Rikk Agnew (Social Distortion/Adolescents)
57 is a mesmerizing grungy indie-rock duo from Seoul, South Korea featuring guitarist Jun and female drummer Snow. Hailed as the hottest new band out of South Korea, they've toured extensively and multiple times across the U.K. and Europe, performing at numerous music festivals since releasing their critically acclaimed self-titled debut EP "57".

“Charged with a ferocious amount of energy, South Korean pair 57 are renowned for their supercharged live shows. Thunderous and neck breaking!" -Get Into This

57 are currently working on their eagerly anticipated first full-length album, which is due to be released at the end of 2017 with a 40 date North American tour to follow.
Since 2010, SA90 has been rocking Santa Cruz and the San Francisco and Monterey Bay area
with heavy, female-fronted punk rock.

A little bit about us – singer Celina Bottini belts out lyrics from her personal life, past and
present. Bassist Mark Hanford was a member of Idaho's Haggis in the 90s. Guitarist Joe
Gabent was in 90s Santa Cruz band The Exploding Crustaceans, as well as in newer acts
The History Lesson and Noise Clinic. Drummer Philip Wheatley played drums in an early
incarnation of renowned 80s Kansas punkers Near Death Experience.

In 2015, they finally entered the studio to lay down 8 tracks of fury. Recorded and mixed by
Joe Clements at Compound Recordings in Santa Cruz county and mastered at Mammoth
Sound Mastering by the illustrious Dan Randall, all 8 songs are potent mixes of heavy guitars,
pounding drums, and in-your-face vocals.

Mark resurrected his old label, Screwball Productions, to release “Johnny On The Phone” in
January of 2016. Copies are pressed on random colored vinyl. Some are solid, some transparent, some
a mix of colors. All records come with an insert and a download card.
