New London’s own The Suicide Dolls mix in a pinch of noise and a good amount of mood with classic rock, punk & pop structures. The bands that they have been compared to most frequently include Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr and the Pixies. Drawing influence from those bands and many others in scattered genres like post-punk, noise-rock and pop, they have worked hard to put their own spin on the classic alternative sound.
They recently released their new full length album, “Prayers in Parking Lots,” in the Spring of 2012. It was recorded over four days in the Spring of 2011 at Q Division Studios (Pixies, Dropkick Murphys, Franz Ferdinand) in Boston, MA and was co-produced by Justin Pizzoferrato (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr, The Hold Steady).
The Suicide Dolls were recently asked to cover the Circle Jerks anthem, ‘When the Shit Hits the Fan,’ for American Laundromat Records tribute to the 1980s cult classic film “Repo Man.” This tribute album to the legendary soundtrack will feature other covers by artists like Black Francis (Pixies), Mike Watt (Minutemen, Stooges), Matthew Sweet, Amanda Palmer (Dresden Dolls), Those Darlins, Weekend and many more. It’s slated for release on September 18th, 2012.
“Pizzoferrato nails the sound the band is obviously going for, as it conjures the unmistakable influence of their favorite bands. The music has that driving force of You’re Living All Over Me (Dinosaur Jr) and the experimental edge of Daydream Nation (Sonic Youth).” -Verbicide Magazine
