The Dollyrots To Tour With The Buzzcocks

Fresh off a tour run with Bowling For Soup and in anticipation of their third full-length slated to drop in August, The Dollyrots get set for a trek with the Buzzcocks. The band, comprised of Kelly Ogden (bass/vocals), Luis Cabezas (guitar) and Chris Black (drums), recently released the "California Beach Boy" EP whose title track was deemed "Coolest Song in the World" by Little Steven's Underground Garage.

The Dollyrots formed by longtime friends Kelly Ogden and Luis Cabezas have shown no sign of slowing down since 2004 when the band self-released their debuted "Eat My Heart Out" to widespread success which garnered them much attention. The rise in their profile led to a slot on the Vans Warped Tour, where they hooked up with drummer Chris Black and solidified the final band line-up. The tour proved not only to be a huge stepping stone for the band, but also the chance to connect with one of its VIP artists, Joan Jett. Jett took a liking to the band and signed them to her label Blackheart Records. In 2007 band released the "Because I'm Awesome" album to rave reviews, and the release's title track was voted "Coolest Song in the World -- 2007" by the listeners of Little Steven's Underground Garage.

The Dollyrots recently put the finishing touches on their upcoming full-length release due out August 2010 on Blackheart Records.
