The freshest new name in punk-influenced rock, BARB WIRE DOLLS, will release their electrifying new album, Rub My Mind, tomorrow, July 7, 2017 via Motörhead Music.
The band is touring all summer long on the Vans Warped Tour in support of the album! Along the way, BARB WIRE DOLLS have met many fans, new and old, face-to-face – hearing their personal stories and bonding over a mutual love of rock music. But one young fan’s story, in particular, really stuck with the band – a 15-year-old girl who expressed that she was considering taking her own life, but after discovering BARB WIRE DOLLS and listening to their messages of self-love and self-empowerment, was inspired to find new ways to use her inner strength to live a more joyous life and help others who are experiencing similar struggles. This story greatly touched lead singer Isis Queen, who also battled with suicidal thoughts at a young age.
Coincidentally, the band’s new track, “If I Fall”, focuses on topics of suicide and just wanting to give up on life in itself. Today, BARB WIRE DOLLS have teamed up with Alternative Press to not only premiere this track, but to also share a statement from Isis Queen about her own personal struggles with self-loathing, and how giving up is never the answer. Listen to “If I Fall” and read Isis’ statement here.
In her statement, Isis Queen says, “I’m extremely grateful that I’m alive today and that our music and message of self-empowerment and self-realization has been able to reach others who have felt the way I did before. Our new track, “If I Fall”, was written about this important issue and I hope it can open up rusty portals in someone’s mind to look beyond suicide and take the challenge that life gives us – and to create a fulfilling, good life for themselves. If we can inspire anyone to make any sort of positive change, that is our mission.”
