Doll Skin will release its sophomore LP, Manic Pixie Dream Girl, on June 16 via EMP Label Group/Amped and in Europe via EMP/SPV.

Produced and mixed by Cage9 frontman Evan Rodaniche (Lacey Sturm, Powerman 5000), Manic is the follow up to Doll Skin’s EMP debut, 2016’s In Your Face (Again), produced by Megadeth bassist David Ellefson. 2016 saw the band on tour Otep, Lacey Sturm, Fire from the Gods, Hellyeah, Dead Kennedys, Escape The Fate, September Mourning, Through Fire and more, capping off the year with a spot on Alternative Press’s list of “7 of the Best Rising Bands Under 21,” before settling in to record the new record.

The band kicked off 2017 with a packed hometown show supporting John 5, and the announcement that it would join the lineup of the 2017 Vans Warped Tour from June 16 to 25, appearing on the “Hard Rock” Stage alongside metal and punk Icons including The Dickies, Municipal Waste, Strung Out, The Adolescents, The Ataris, TSOL and Fire from the Gods.

In addition to the stint on Warped Tour, Doll Skin has announced a run of headlining dates in April and May, as well as the release of “Shut Up (You Miss Me),” the first single from Manic Pixie Dream Girl.

Drummer Meghan Herring says, “How excited are we for Warped Tour? Psyched. Ecstatic. Beside ourselves. We’re feeling it all at once. Before we were even a band, I would go to Warped with the girls. Now our names are on the poster. It’s a surreal feeling. The lineup this year is absolutely incredible as well. Let’s do this!”

And on the new album, Herring said, “We are so crazy excited for this new record to be released! The sophomore album is an entirely different beast. It’s colorful, loud, and all over the place. It really shows the world who we are.”

Vocalist Sydney Dolezal said: “I am so excited to be hitting the road again this spring! We’ve got some great new tunes that we know you’ll all love, and I can’t wait to see all of our friends and fans around the country!”
