The Dollyrots continue to bring their trademark melodic pop-punk to the masses with a new album and tour run this summer. The duo’s upcoming new album Daydream Explosion will be out on July 12 on Wicked Cool/The Orchard. Preorder the full album now and get both “Everything” and “In Your Face” as instant downloads.

Daydream Explosion is the band’s sixth release with longtime producer John Fields (Jimmy Eat World, All Time Low.) The new album bursts out of the gate with the one-two punch of “Animal” and lead single “Everything.” Follow-up single “In Your Face” is a midtempo rocker with a wallop of a chorus, while stylistic variations are all over the collection of 14 brand-new songs. “Watching The Storm Go By” is a ’60s girl-group homage while the lounge vibes on the verses of “Flippy In My Red Dress” are balanced sweetly by the revved-up chorus. Album closer “Daisy’s Song” is an ode to Kelly and Luis’ two-and-a-half-year-old daughter.
“Their songwriting has reached a consistent level of greatness.” – Wicked Cool founder Stevie Van Zandt
The Dollyrots’ songs have long been a staple in rotation on Little Steven’s Underground Garage, but the band’s recent work really perked up the ears of Underground Garage/Wicked Cool founder Stevie Van Zandt. The alliance with Wicked Cool, which began with the singles “Get Radical” in 2018 and “Everything” this spring, is a return to a label after several DIY, fan-funded releases since 2012.
The band recently wrapped up a west coast tour run and will be on the road again this summer. Look for them back in California for their album release party presented by Little Steven’s Underground Garage at the Hi Hat on July 13 and The Vans Warped Tour 25th Anniversary Celebration at Shoreline Amphitheater on July 20. Their east coast tour kicks off on July 30, full list of dates below. Tickets available at thedollyrots.com.
