The Rocket Dolls Release New Video Ahead Of Album, UK shows & Wildfire Festival and Ramblin Man Fair




BRIGHTON BASED GRUNGE ROCK TRIO RELEASE GRIM MUSIC VIDEO AHEAD OF NEW ALBUM AND UK TOUR

DON'T MISS THE ROCKET DOLLS LIVE AT WILDFIRE FESTIVAL AND RAMBLIN' MAN FAIR

Watch 'DeaDHead' (official music video): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FlEf8Le2bg0




In the new video 'DeaDHead', The Rocket Dolls vocalist/guitarist Nikki Smash takes on the role of grim reaper to deliver a message of death courtesy of his bosses, played by band mates Benji Knopler (drums) and Joe Constable (bass). Eventually having enough of delivering punishment and the misery it inflicts, Nikki delivers a rose to the crime overlords and punishes them for using him to do their dirty work, giving them a taste of their own medicine!

The Rocket Dolls new music video was directed by Dave Neale & James Eldridge of Wild Stag Studios.

Smash talks about the song,"'DeaDhead' is just simply about my battles with depression, battle with drugs and prescription painkillers. After a particular heavy day, I hadn’t a clue where on earth I was, I was actually in a flat downstairs from my own and I couldn’t for the life of me get back to my own. The day after, I realised something had to change. I couldn’t carry on being that reckless, and this song is very much me wearing my heart on my sleeve."

Delivering 11 tracks of "angst and emotion that is palpable" (Planet Mosh), The Rocket Dolls have produced one of the most passionate and honest rock releases you'll hear by a British band this year.

The new album 'DeaDHead' is out 6th April 2018 and is available to pre-order now.

EX-HIM Frontman Ville Valo Reveals New Band & Album

Ex-HIM Frontman Ville Valo has announced his return to music with his new band, Ville Valo & Agents, with their debut single, a cover of Rauli Badding Somerjoki's 'Orpolapsi Kiurun'(‘Orphan Child Of The Skylark’) to drop later this month on the 21st September, with an album to follow in 2019.


Ville has teamed up with Esa Pulliainen, guitarist with veteran Finnish band Agents, to record an album of songs inspired by late Finnish rock’n’roll singer Rauli Badding Somerjoki.

“This story begins three years ago,” says Pulliainen, whose band played with Badding in the 80s. “Upon finding three demo cassettes in my drawer which had been sent to me by Badding back in the day, I knew I had to contact Ville right from the get-go. I was aware he knows his Badding inside out. I'm really happy that we were able to finalize this project. Badding meant for these songs to be recorded and even if it took us 30 years to make that happen, I feel I've kept my promise."

Badding is…
