"Monstrous Child" is Bad Pollyanna's highly anticipated debut album.

The songs and accompanying videos of debut album "Monstrous Child" tell the story of an innocent young woman who falls victim to a crazed scientist's desperate attempts to reincarnate his lost love and, against her will, is transformed into a beautiful but deadly monster. As she looks at herself and her old life through new eyes she can see how she had been conditioned by the world around her to be afraid and subservient. With rage and lust coursing through her powerful new body but her memories intact, she faces a brutal battle between holding onto her humanity and her desire to avenge a lifetime of powerlessness.

With Olivia bringing the character to life both onstage and in their visuals as well as on the record itself, Bad Pollyanna haven't just created an album but a whole world in which their fans can immerse themselves.
