Todd to produce next NEW YORK DOLLS Album

The New York Dolls and legendary record producer Todd Rundgren have
been reunited for the first time in 36 years. Rundgren will produce
the Dolls' new album at his studio on the island of Kauai.
Production is scheduled to start in January 2009.

This is the first time in 36 years since Rundgren originally produced
the New York Dolls eponymous debut album "The New York Dolls" which
included the classic songs "Personality Crisis", "Trash", "Jet Boy"
and "Private World". Rundgren will be reunited with original Dolls
founding members, David Johansen (vocals) and Sylvain Sylvain
(guitar, vocals).

"We're really excited to be working with Todd again," says David
Johansen. "We're hoping to recapture the same magic on the
forthcoming album."

The album, which is yet untitled, will be released on the Atco label
through Warner Brothers. The Atco label has been specially re-
launched. The New York Dolls are one of the first signings to the
label. The Dolls will follow the release of the new album with a
world tour in 2009.

Kentish Town Forum (Sunday November 23).
