The Twisted Dolls 

Manchester’s catchy rock and roll blues trio The Twisted Dolls release their second single ‘Bluesbreaker’ and to mark the occasion have announced an official launch event at Joshua Brooks, Manchester on Friday 27th November 2015.

Twisted Dolls were formed in 2013, out of a longing of front man Luke Thornton to become a band with an ‘arsenal of riffs, where every song is a story brought to life’, they have ever since been meticulously constructing their unique sound as they played live throughout the UK.

This year has seen The Dolls acquire Grace Chilcott as their new drummer who they described as their ‘secret weapon’ and they’ve been performing catchy, raw and powerful new material that encompasses the bands love of rock n roll blues with the soulfulness of Cream, the power of Zeppelin and the complete showmanship of David Bowie and T-Rex which has acquired them a reputation as one of Manchester most exciting new live bands.
