When you’ve been a band long enough to release eight studio albums, play two thousand shows, work with Joan Jett & Stevie Van Zandt, and give birth to two children who are now old enough for guitar lessons, the Punk Rock roadshow turns into a family affair. But even with the addition of their two youngest traveling cohorts — son River and daughter Daisy — The Dollyrots won’t be confused for The Partridge Family anytime soon. “Sometimes you get bored with the party,” says bassist/vocalist/mom Kelly Ogden. “We toured for over a decade being ridiculous, drinking too much, being crazy. Honestly, I was ready to throw in the towel more than once.” Things have changed since that earlier pre-parental era of the band, the longstanding artistic collaboration between Kelly and her husband, guitarist/dad Luis Cabezas. “Our kids are totally normal at home but are so easy on tour. They just know what to do, on stage and off. It’s a part of them,” says Cabezas. The next adventure on the now-expanded Dollyrots caravan is the brand new album Night Owls, their latest full length effort. Released in October 2023 through Stevie Van Zandt’s Wicked Cool Records, the album is co-Produced by longtime collaborator John Fields (Jimmy Eat World, All Time Low, Meet Me At the Altar). “John Fields is our George Martin,” says Kelly. “He’s pretty much our bandmate that doesn’t tour.” The Dollyrots are no stranger to success. The band has hit the Billboard Heatseekers and Independent Albums charts multiple times, they’ve been featured in movies and TV shows and they’ve shared stages with some of punk and rock’s biggest names.
