The Dresden Dolls is the eponymous debut studio album by American Brechtian Punk Cabaret duo The Dresden Dolls. It was recorded by Brooklyn producer Martin Bisi and released on 26 September 2003 on 8ft. Records, the band's personal label. Upon signing with Roadrunner Records, the album was re-released on April 27, 2004. The enhanced CD included a video for "Girl Anachronism". The album artwork was also modified to mask which record sleeves had been used in the album artwork.
This is Amanda's highest-selling album, a self-titled 2004 release with her punk-cabaret band Dresden Dolls, has sold 149,000 copies; none of her subsequent albums (two more Dresden Dolls records, a solo release and an album by a project called Evelyn Evelyn) crossed the 100,000 mark, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
