Following high fan demand, Atlantic recording artist Melanie Martinez has unveiled the third leg of her acclaimed US headline tour. The new leg will kick off January 22 in Connecticut, continuing through February (see attached itinerary). For full details, please visit www.facebook.com/melaniemartinezmusic.Ticket on-sales begin this Friday, November 21.
Martinez’s compelling “Dollhouse” companion video has proven an online phenomenon, with individual page views now in excess of 11 million at www.youtube.com/watch?v=HcVv9R1ZR84. Co-written by Martinez with GRAMMY® Award-nominated tunesmiths Kinetics & One Love (B.o.B, Neon Hitch), the dark pop dream of “Dollhouse” has already earned an array of ecstatic critical notices. The song “positions Martinez as an American version of Lorde,” writes Newsday’s Glenn Gamboa. “She’s an 18-year-old writing songs for and about teenagers in an authentic, memorable way.” “(Martinez) sings about a picture-perfect family that is much more troubled under the surface,” declared Us Weekly, noting that Martinez – a former contestant on NBC’s smash reality singing competition series, The Voice – “might be the show’s first real breakout star.”
“Carousel,” taken from Martinez’s breakthrough debut, “THE DOLLHOUSE EP,” is currently featured in the first extended trailer for FX Networks’ American Horror Story: Freak Show (www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKGwySm9nMc). The official companion video – filmed on the acclaimed singer/songwriter’s native Long Island, New York, premiered a few weeks ago via Buzzfeed and can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAB5AC9yhY0. Yahoo called the video
“a wild ride” adding that “the video has everything: zombie carnies, freaky funhouse mirrors, scary dolls, levitation, light bondage, purple eyebrows, pink vomit… and Melanie’s haunting voice, of course, accompanied by the eerie tinkling of music boxes and the oom-pah-pah of old-school organ grinders.”
Martinez is currently hard at work finishing her eagerly awaited debut album ‘Cry Baby’ alongside the aforementioned Kinetics & One Love. ‘Cry Baby’ is slated to arrive in spring 2015.
