One Eyed Doll
Genre: Goth, Punk Rock
Similar to: Creature Feature, The Dirty Youth, Straight Line Stitch
Described as Strawberry Shortcake meets Gwar and Valentine's Day meets Halloween with the visual impact of Japanese Anime, One-Eyed Doll is an award-winning Austin, Texas power rock duo with a loyal global fan base and extensive international press exposure. In 2009, 2010, 2011, the group swept the SXSW Music Awards in categories such as Best Punk Band, Best Metal Band, Best Goth Band, Best New Band and much more. The group has independently released three full-length albums, they appear in Revolver, Guitar World and Guitar Player magazines and has left several national tours in its wake including major anime conventions. Blazing the band's wildfire, amongst their growing legions or religiously crazed fans, is One-Eyed Doll's cult leader: the impossible-not-to-love Kimberly Freeman, whose punishment is so sweet you'll beg for more.
If life was a comic book, Doll Skin would be right at home in the larger than life color pages. Four Glitter-fueled, teenage, punk rock superheroes, wielding mighty guitars, as they battle tyranny and oppression with adrenaline fueled rock anthems. But don't get the wrong idea, Doll skin is just as much The Runaways, as they are Josie and the Pussycats. And in that polarized dichotomy lies the heart of Doll Skin, young, pretty, and dangerous. (Imagine if teenage Harley Quinn started a band.) All that aside, Doll Skin is far from just a gimmick with a pretty face (ok, technically 4), these girls really know how to rock, pounding out heartfelt "glitter punk" crafted with a skill well beyond their young years
Formed in Arizona in 2013, Doll Skin, Vocalist Sydney Dolezal (15), Guitarist Alex Snowden (16), Bassist Nicole Rich (17), and Drummer Meghan Herring (19) came to the attention of Megadeth bassist and co-founder David Ellefson, who took the band under his wing, and together they began a sonic assault on the West Coast, playing shows with Green Jello, DRI, SLUNT, and many more, through Arizona, California, etc.
Doll Skin will be releasing their debut album "In Your Face" October 30, 2015 through Ellefson's own imprint via legendary Metal label Megaforce, (also known as the launching pad for legendary big 4 thrash bands Metallica and Anthrax and many more.) which sees Ellefson handling producing duties as well.
Says Ellefson,"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."
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."
The band has also wrapped production on a video for the first single "Family of Strangers", which will be released in October.
Lead Vocals: Sydney Dolezal

Seven Days Lost
Starting members Mike Trejo and Joseph Vallejos,
a small skeleton crew from Pueblo Colorado's known
Metal Masters 1990's "WICKED WAYZ" had a Devilish Nightmare
in their heads when they came up with the plot for
Seven Days Lost.
Re-mastered songs like Hammer Down and Suicide Saturday Night
have found their way into the current set list and
still rock the crowd to the point of exhaustion.
Se7en-Days-Lost was officially founded in the
dark heart of a cold winters night in early 2007,
following a series of performances at Mike Trejo's - Hell's Circus.
Hell's Circus is promoted as "The Loudest Show on Earth",
and for that you need a crew of Hard Rock Monsters with the
balls to turn it up both musically and visually!! Ear bleeding solos,
heart stopping thunderous sound and a over the top visual
appearance is required to live up to this kind of billing.Band members
Gary Higdon (Bass & Vocals), Mike Rodriguez (Drums & Vocal),
Joseph Vallejos (Lead Guitar & Vocals), and front man Michael Trejo (Guitar & Vocals)
have performed together as the musical muscle…
the fire breathing motor, that had driven the Hell's Circus show.
The need became apparent that this Hard Rock - Heavy Metal Nightmare,
needed it's own identity, so it could continue to reek havoc and mayhem
beyond the Big Top of Pain known as Hell's Circus, from this
Se7en-Days-Lost was born.
The band strives to entertain it's fans with not only songs that are
Thick as a Brick & Twice as Hard, but a with a growing, constantly
evolving live show that visually captivates the viewer and draws them into
a musical web of hooks! Once there, there is no escape…
2009 marked 7DL first official shows outside of Hell's Circus
and the beginning of a recording project. Plan on CD & DVD
projects in 2010 along with new merchandise and a
much more aggressive playing schedule.
Hell's Circus features musicians from the the band "Se7en-Days-Lost"
as the musical motor that drives the shows,
along with several other area guest musicians.
The Circus also features Dancer's and Actors
from some of the area theater companies.
Most of the dancers come from Dance Unlimited School of Dance.
Hell's Circus is one of Mike Trejo's ongoing projects,
which include his local cable TV show
"Access Unlimited" (www.accessunlimitedtv.com)
Members of the Circus change from show to show
and many of the performers return to later events,
but the core of the songs that act as the sound track to A Hell's Circus show are written
by Mike Trejo from his past and current projects.
HELL'S CIRCUS..... I remember working in a gas station years ago
with my boom box playing some of my favorite rock music,
when a gentleman walked in and grimaced
and put his hands on his ears, even though the music was turned down.
He looked at me and said "That is the Devil's music!"
and informed me that I was going to hell,
even though he knew nothing about me
or what kind of person I was.
There has always been people and some religious leaders,
who have dubbed it as Evil or Wicked, ...........
"the Devil's music."
Never mind that majority of the Rock songs subject matter
is the same as many other forms of more socially accepted music.
So when it came time to give this beast of my own creation a name,
I asked myself, "What in the hell do you call this
Rock and Roll Roller Coaster Ride?"
One of the Descriptions of a Circus in the Dictionary is:
A place or activity marked by rowdy or noisy disorder.
My Frankenstein needed a name
that described it in such a way that made meaning of it's being.
My vision is to merge visual stimulation and audio ecstasy.
The show is geared toward the likes of
Alice Cooper & Rob Zombie.
Shows such as these conjure up images of evil for those who believe that Rock n Roll is Wicked. ............
This is a show packed with action and entertainment
placed on a foundation of Rock music that has a sound that is as
thick as brick and twice as hard.
That is why it is called:
Hell's Circus A Rock'n Roll Psychodrama
with no real story that connects one song to the next
in it's live performance.
The jumbled ranting of mad men.......
Just a series of underlying short stories bound together by the theme of there presentation.
Words that have meaning and stories that have reason,
but are often miss-inturpreted and twisted to feed the listeners own personal views.
When you come to a Hell's Circus show,
we mean only to entertain you for the time you care to share with us.
We Hope to see you when the circus comes to your town!!!...
Michael J. Trejo
