HOMEGROWN TALENT: Collie's own Sisters Doll formed in 2010 and now have hundreds of shows under their belt. They are looking forward to playing The Vic Hotel on Saturday, July 6 as part of their national Black Mirror tour.

Glam rockers Sisters Doll are about to embark on a new national tour that will include their former home town of Collie.

Now based in Melbourne, the trio of brothers released their newest single Black Mirror in March and are about to unveil its official music video.

Black Mirror, also the title of their upcoming tour, is a song that explores the youth of today's obsession with social media. It is the first song the band wrote collectively.

"Normally in the past when we write, one of us generally comes in with an idea and we go from there but with Black Mirror we all constructed it together from melodies to drums and everything in between," drummer Bryce Mileto said.

With more than 600 shows under their belts, Sisters Doll are renowned for turning heads wherever they go and for stepping up to any opportunity that comes their way.

Forming in 2010, the band gained prominence in 2016 when they auditioned for Channel Nine's Australia's Got Talent and were crowned runners up.

Sisters Doll had already toured with former KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick on his 2015 Australian tour - and again in 2017 - played Groovin' The Moo Festival in 2013, released an album (2012's Welcome To The Dollhouse) and supported rock royalty such as Four By Fate, LA Guns, The Angels, Ross Wilson, The Badloves, Angry Anderson and Daryl Braithwaite.

KISS's original drummer Peter Criss even invited the band to share his stage in Melbourne and New York City in 2017. In 2018, the band members were handpicked as judges on Channel Seven's debut season of All Together Now.

Sisters Doll were especially looking forward to returning to Collie, the place they grew up where 'everyone knows everyone' and that they 'love to bits'.

"Collie is and will always be our home - the people are some of the most amazing and genuine people in the world," the boys said.

"We'll never forget hot summers down at the View Street Deli where we got ice cream, ghost drops and all the naughty candy.

"Of course, the swimming spot down at Black Diamond. Our girlfriends growing up were all in Collie - so those were very formative years.

"It's amazing how much inspiration you can get from one place and some of our best songs were written in Collie.

"Coming back to Collie will be the highlight of our past few years - we can't wait for that show and to see everyone there."

  • The Black Mirror Tour starts in Geelong on May 31 and includes appearances at The Vic Hotel in Collie on Saturday, July 6 and Bunbury's Prince of Wales Hotel on July 12, plus dates in Perth and Albany.
