Punk rock duo the Dollyrots are wrapping up recording and getting set for a new album release and a new addition to the family. The twosome has been hard at work in the studio with long-time producer John Fields and are determined to wrap it all up before their baby girl arrives in mid-November. You can hear clips of the first 2 tracks and get an update from the band here: https://youtu.be/LSgMGlbAjHM
This will be their 4rd PledgeMusic crowdfunded project and there are plenty of pledger-only exclusives and unique items like tour guitars, video chats, surprise goodie boxes, back stage passes, personal items, cocktails with the band and much more. As always, regardless of what you order, all pledgers will receive a digital download of the studio album the moment it’s ready for release and before the general public gets their hands on it.
After the band meets their goal a percentage of proceeds will be donated to Assn. for Frontotemporal Degeneration. Just over a year ago Kelly’s father was diagnosed with a lesser known form of dementia called Frontotemporal Degeneration or FTD. It typically affects people younger than Alzheimers or other forms of dementia and there is currently no treatment known to stop or slow its progression. Funding for research is essential and the band would like to do what they can to help other families facing this disease in the future.
The duo’s last release Family Vacation: Live in Los Angeles debuted #15 on Billboard’s Heatseekers album chart, garnering them their 2nd chart appearance. While their 2015 release, Barefoot And Pregnant charted with a peak #7 also on Billboard’s Heatseekers. The follow-up to the group’s 2012’s self-titled LP, two albums on Joan Jett’s Blackheart Records, and a 2004 debut through Lookout/Panic Button Records.
