BECAUSE I’M AWESOME IS NOW AVAILABLE ON VINYL
Pop-Punk duo the Dollyrots have made this year’s holiday releases a family affair and are releasing them as a gift from the Dollyrots family to yours.
They covered two holiday classics but of course doubled the speed to make them their own and invited some special guests from the band family to join them. Joining Dollyrots, Kelly Ogden and Luis Cabezas on “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” on backup vocals is 4-year-old Daisy Dollyrot, Whitney Parsons, Miski Dee Rodriguez (of City Mouse) and mixed by John Fields. Making his recording debut on “All I Want For Christmas (Is My Two Front Teeth)” is 7-year-old River Dollyrot. Both songs were produced by Luis Cabezas.
“We recorded TWO Holiday songs this year, and they’re a gift to our awesome friends and fans! The first is a cover of the Darlene Love 60’s classic “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)”, and track 2 is the debut lead vocal by our kid River in “All I Want For Christmas (Is My Two Front Teeth)”. He’s at that age where teeth are falling out, so we figured now’s the perfect time to take that one on. These tracks are absolutely free to bring the cheer. Here’s to next year and hopefully some live music on the calendar!” – says Luis and Kelly.
The band has also released their sophomore album Because I’m Awesome on vinyl via Wicked Cool Records. The album is now available as an autographed gatefold, 180-gram picture disc with a poster insert. The original version was released via Blackheart Records in 2007.
“It’s finally happening! For the first time ever we’re releasing “Because I’m Awesome” on vinyl, with friends Wicked Cool Records! And it’s super deluxe 180-gram, picture disc, gatefold vinyl with a poster insert. This album was picked out of a demo pile by Joan Jett back in 2007 before she put it out through her label Blackheart Records, and we’re SO excited to see it be issued in such a deluxe way now. We still close every live set with “Because I’m Awesome”, it’s got a certain something special and we’re so happy to be able to offer this ultimate package of it to our fans!” – says Luis
