When you ’ ve been a band long enough to release seven albums, play two thousand shows, work with Joan Jett & Stevie Van Zandt, perform live on The Price Is Right , and give birth to two children who are now old enough for guitar lessons, the Punk Rock roadshow turns into a family affair., But even with the addition of their two youngest traveling cohorts — son River and daughter Daisy — The Dollyrots won ’ t be confused for The Partridge Family anytime soon. “ Sometimes you get bored with the pa rty, ” says bassist/vocalist/mom Kelly Ogden. “ We toured for over a decade being ridiculous, drinking too much, being crazy. Honestly, I was ready to throw in the towel more than once. ” Things have changed since that earlier pre - parental era of the band, th e longstanding artistic collaboration between Kelly and her husband, guitarist/dad Luis Cabezas. “ Our kids are totally normal at home but are so easy on tour. They just know what to do. It ’ s a part of them. ” The next adventure on the now - expanded Dollyr ots caravan is a couple brand new singles and tours ahead of their eighth full length studio album. In February 2023 the band toured the UK with an exclusive early release of “ Still Holding On ” on Wicked Cool Records, a digital single which sees a US relea se April 28th . The first physical US release, the 7 - inch single “ Hey Girl ” , was co - produced with Steven Van Zandt at his Renegade Studios in NYC, with Geoff Sanoff Engineering. The single was released during the band ’ s “ Hey Girl ” Spring US tour. The B - Sid e “ I Touch Myself ” - a cover of the Divinyls 1990 hit - was co - Produced by longtime collaborator John Fields (Jimmy Eat World, All Time Low, Meet Me At the Altar), who is responsible for the bulk of Production credit on the upcoming full - length LP. “ John F ields is our George Martin, ” says Kelly. “ He ’ s pretty much our bandmate that doesn ’ t tour. ” The Dollyrots are no stranger to success. They have released albums on Panic Button/Lookout and Joan Jett ’ s Blackheart Records, and are now working with Stevie Van Zandt ’ s Wicked Cool Records. The band has hit the Billboard Heatseekers and Independent Albums charts multiple times, they ’ ve been featured in movies and TV shows, and they ’ ve shared stages with some of punk and rock ’ s biggest names. Long a staple in rotation on Little Steven ’ s Underground Garage, the band ’ s consistent output perked up the ears of Wicked Cool founder Stevie Van Zandt. “ Their songwriting has reached a consistent level of greatness, ” he says.
