One of three awesome steampunk-oriented bands I was able to see live at the World Steam Expo on Memorial Day weekend in Dearborn, MI, US. I loved how they added organs to "Impartial (The Battle)" in their live performance. It made the song all the more dynamic and serious.
Ahhh at this point we only have Dramatis Personae we are currently working on our sophomore release (a 2 cd set!) which we will keep everyone up to date on it's progress. Our second album will be done in a full narrative format and we have plans to issue a novel alongside it explaining the clockwork dolls storyline!

I'm studying 1890s gothic and new women, so it definitely puts me in the right frame of mind... "You really thought I’d be content / A housewife in a gilded cage? [...] This triumph of my female souI / will not spoil with useless tears." Better not mention the airship!
Ladies and Gentlemen of the Steampunk Community,
As some of you may know for the past 2 years a scrappy little group from Baltimore started to work on a musical project called "The Clockwork Dolls".
After many months sweating away in the studio and many bottles of whiskey, The Clockwork Dolls has completed it's debut album which ran to press this week.
We are offering you a complimentary copy of our album free for download!
All we ask that if you enjoy our work to tell your friends and let others know of our existance. Also to let us know we love hearing from people.
Orders for hardcopies of our album will begin as of next week with a launch of an official website (that's right we're moving beyond myspace!) next month.
Untill next time prime your guns, whet your blades, the crew of the Dame De Fer awaits!
