Formed in late 2010 The Ratchet Dolls went from being the outcasts to rising to the top of the South Texas music scene. Starting out playing small venues with local metal bands they could not have been more mismatched. Funny thing is that by the end of each set they had the crowds going crazy.
Fast forward to 2012. The band starts getting courted by several small labels. They are now the most sought after band in the region. They sign with Rock Angels Management and start touring throughout Texas.
In 2013 The Ratchet Dolls continued filling up venues around Texas, and opening for national acts. They also recorded their first EP while building an international fanbase online. In 2014 they get hand picked among every glam rock band worldwide and invited to perform in Rocklahoma 2014. It was an honor to be able to be a part of a 3 day festival in Pryor Oklahoma performing next to Kid Rock, Twisted Sister, Black Label Society, Skid Row, Deftones, Five Finger Death Punch , Cinderella’s – Tom Keiffer, Stain, Extreme, Filter, Pop Evil, Seether just to name a few. Their incredible performance and their humble yet, very fun personalities had the crowd loving them allowing them to reach a whole new set of faithful fans and followers across the country. In 2015 Ratchet Dolls continue to tour across the country and writting new music getting invited to return to perform at Rocklahoma 2015. They shared the stage with artist like Linkin Park, Slayer, Tesla, Godsmack, Volbeat, Breaking Benjamin, Papa Roach, Halestorm, Queensrÿche, Live, Anthrax, Ministry, The Pretty Reckless, Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts, Of Mice & Men, In This Moment, Apocalyptica, The Winery Dogs, Motionless In White, In Flames, Aranda, Nonpoint, We Are Harlot, Young Guns, You Me At Six, Periphery, Red Dragon Cartel, Starset, Shaman’s Harvest, Upon A Burning Body, Sabaton and Like A Storm and Crobot to name a few.
In 2017 things are going to get even better. Ratchet Dolls transformed their look as their music transforms while maintaining their high energy live performances. They are planning on releasing their full length album and their first national tour, while participating with national acts. Ratchet Dolls will return to Rocklahoma in 2017. See you on the road.
