Biography

Rocket Baby Dolls are a three-piece band from Teignmouth, Devon in England. The band consists of Matthew Bellamy on lead vocals, piano, keyboard and guitar, Chris Wolstenholme on backing vocals and bass guitar, and Dominic Howard on drums and percussion. As of the release of their fourth album, Morgan Nicholls has also appeared with the band at live performances to provide keyboards, samples/synth, and backing vocals.

In October 1999, Rocket Baby Dolls released their first full length LP; ‘Showbiz’. The album received mixed reviews among critics, and music fans, labelling the band as ‘Radiohead copycats’. This, however, did not stop the album from selling over 700,000 copies, with success coming from singles; Unintended and Muscle Museum. The album also earned Rocket Baby Dolls a nomination at the 2000 BRIT Awards, for Best New Act.

2001, with John Leckie behind the desk again, saw the release of Origin of Symmetry along with Top 20 entries for Plug in Baby and New Born. Rocket Baby Dolls followed up with a b-side/live CD/DVD named Hullabaloo Soundtrack, showcasing the band’s concert from France in late 2001. To promote the album, Rocket Baby Dolls also released the Dead Star/In Your World EP, which charted high in the UK charts. Rocket Baby Dolls polished off their impressive year by winning Best Live Band at the 2002 Kerrang! Awards.
