IN HONOR OF THE 30-YEAR-ANNIVERSARY OF NIRVANA’S ‘NEVERMIND,’ THE DOLLYROTS RELEASE THEIR VERSION OF “BREED“ AS A PAY-WHAT-YOU-WANT SINGLE
In honor of a band that continues to inspire generations of artists and music lovers alike, The Dollyrots are releasing their unique take on Nirvana’s “Breed” in celebration of the 30-year-anniversary of their classic 1991 album ‘Nevermind.’ Get it as a pay-what-you-want single here: https://thedollyrots.bandcamp.com/track/breed-single
The Dollyrots are Kelly Ogden on vocals and bass, Luis Cabezas on guitar and Justin McGrath on drums. The band is currently in the studio working on new music to be released in 2022.
“Without Nirvana, there would be no Dollyrots. The first song Luis taught me on guitar was “About A Girl” and things grew from there. Because Nirvana are like some mythical, magical entity to us, it always felt like we shouldn’t do a cover… but we gotta celebrate ‘Nevermind.’ So, here’s “Breed,” – says singer and bass player Kelly Ogden.
“Sometimes, after a show, when we’re chatting up our people, I get asked, “What’s the best way to learn how to play guitar?” I always have the same answer – just play along to something you love. That was Nirvana for me. I learned to play by being like millions of kids out there just like me; all full of angst and locked in my bedroom jamming along, learning by figuring out every song by my favorite band ever. We hope we did “Breed” justice; it’s ultimately a love song, so it felt like it’s the right choice for our lovey-dovey band,” – says guitarist Luis Cabezas.
The Dollyrots 2019 album Daydream Explosion was deemed by NPR as a ‘Notable Release’ and Huffington Post called it a “foot-stomping medley,” while New Noise said it is “pop-punk perfection” and it debuted on three Billboard charts. Their 2017 album Whiplash Splash hit Heatseekers chart at #13 and the Independent Albums chart at #31. The band’s 2016 live album/DVD Family Vacation: Live in Los Angeles hit #15 on Heatseekers, while previous studio album Barefoot And Pregnant peaked at #7 on the same chart.
