Feminist post-hardcore band Petrol Girls have announced they will be playing a bunch of dates across the UK, starting this month.
They’re also taking phone submissions for their new video for ‘Touch Me Again’. The song is about sexual harassment and assault and is taken from their debut Talk Of Violence, which was released last year.
Speaking about this, front woman Ren Aldridge says, “We’re also collecting phone video submissions to put together a video for our song ‘Touch Me Again’, which grew out of the demo chant “MY BODY MY CHOICE” and seems to be something we’ll be shouting a lot more given the escalating political attacks on women, wombs and marginalised bodies in general.”
Ren will also be performing a solo set at the launch party for new book Nasty Women, a non-fiction project she contributed to about being a woman in the 21st century.
