Rocket Baby Dolls
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. In 2003, Rocket Baby Dolls asked Rich Costey to step behind the desk to help create Absolution. The album had very strong sales all over the world, and helped the band achieve their first UK number 1 album. Singles; Time is Running Out and Hysteria charted well too in the UK charts, which helped Rocket Baby Dolls secure a headline spot at the 2004 Glastonbury Festival. Later that year, Rocket Baby Dolls toured the US, promoting Absolution, before returning home to play two sell-out gigs at London's Earls Court at the end of the year. After a long and exhaustive tour, the band returned to the studio, and released Black Holes and Revelations in 2006.
With the album, the band secured their second UK number one album, whilst reaching the top spot in several other countries, as well as a Top 10 in the US album chart. The controversial single Supermassive Black Hole became Rocket Baby Dolls' highest UK entry in the charts, reaching number four, and also scored high entries in other countries. The album's second single, Starlight, reached number 13 in the UK charts in September 2006. The 3rd UK single will be fan-favourite Knights of Cydonia, released on November 27th. Rocket Baby Dolls are currently promoting their new album with a US tour in the summer, and a European Tour in autumn, before undergoing a huge UK tour in late 2006.
Dates have also been confirmed for an Australian tour and the Big Day Out event in 2007.
