Ratchet Dolls is an American rock band from Brownsville, TX, formed in 2014. The band consists of founder Kevin Sauceda (lead vocals, lead guitar), Eliseo Moreno (bass, backing vocals), and Robert Mendoza (drums, backing vocals).

The band released their self-titled EP Ratchet Dolls in 2014. On July 2017, the band released their first full-length studio album, Damaged, spawning three singles - “Highway Hypnosis,” “Insane,” and “In My Mind.” The album catapulted the band from small local venues to international music festivals opening up for legendary acts. On March 2018, the band was forced to re-release Damaged through EarRiot Records, LLC after firing their then management team (Rock Angels Agency, LLC) due to copyright infringement and for withholding royalties from the band. On May 2019, the band spawned a highly anticipated single, “Out of Control,” celebrating the band’s reincarnation. “Out of Control” was widely accepted in over 50 countries and was featured on Loudwire’s “Weekly Wire Playlist”, KNAC Pure Rock with Full Metal Jackie, Eddie Trunk, and Metal DJ Will, and many other outlets. Ratchet Dolls is currently in the studio recording their sophomore album which is set for release in 2020.

New Music Video

We turn the rock ‘n’ roll dial back to the setting marked ‘Sleazy’ as we get ‘Out Of Control’ with Texas hard rockers Ratchet Dolls. This one will simultaneously light a fire under your ass and start a riot in your ears, with its infectious groove and Hard Rockin’ vibe.”

A lifelong Dream for many and a reality to those that pursue and persevere. Meet the Ratchet Dolls - a local group from the Rio Grande Valley. It’s not the first time the group makes it to the big stage along with some of the most prominent names in the genre...”
— Alfredo Cuadros - KVEO Local 23 News
Sauceda’s slightly gruff vocal style lends itself to the sleazier end of the rock spectrum but this album is a lot more polished than that. The songs are fast-paced, well-constructed and clearly suited to live performance which they pride themselves on.”
