Indie-punk trio Muncie Girls have revealed a new music video for ‘Social Side’, which is the latest single to be lifted from the band’s stunning debut album ‘From Caplan To Belsize’.  "We've played so many shows since our album came out in March,” says vocalist and bassist Lande Hekt. “It's been amazing, exhausting and the most fun we've ever had! Some of it was caught on camera (including a bonfire we had to welcome in the autumn), so we thought we'd get this video together for Social Side.”

 
Muncie Girls are set to hit the road in the UK in November for a headline tour with Woahnows and Happy Accidents joining them for the ride.
 
Muncie Girls’ debut album ‘From Caplan To Belsize’ was released earlier this year to critical acclaim and the band have had quite a 2016, playing to significant crowds at the likes of Glastonbury, Download Festival, Reading and Leeds, SWN, Groezrock and The Great Escape. They were nominated for a Kerrang! Award for Best British Newcomer, shortlisted for the Drowned In Sound Neptune Music Prize and have had their music played on the likes of BBC Radio 1, as well as appearing on German TV show Circus Halli Galli alongside Robbie Williams. Publications across the board have been glowing in their praise of the record and The A.V. Club recently named ‘From Caplan To Belsize’ in their Best Music of 2016 So Far, declaring “’Respect’ has one of the year’s best choruses”.
 
Muncie Girls’ debut album will be getting a second pressing courtesy of Specialist Subject and Uncle M Records; this is expected to be released before the end of 2016. Specialist Subject’s run will be limited to 500 on blue vinyl with 500 pink vinyl pressed by Uncle M.

Okay, so as some of you already know, there was a really bad fire in our local venue The Cavern on 6th September. The damage is severe and it’s going to need a lot of work before it can reopen. Everyone is being brave and super positive but truthfully it’s a really sad thing to have happened. 

Like so many other weird punk and indie kids, we’ve been going there since we were 16 and we played our first shows there. Everything we know about bands comes from the people that we learnt from down there and without that place I’m pretty sure we’d all be either really embarrassing musicians that take themselves really seriously, or be stuck in a job we don’t like. 

Also I’ve worked there since I was 18 and Pippa and Dave always let me go on tour and work when I was home. It was a rare privilege that I hope I never took for granted. My life would look entirely different if it wasn’t for the Cavern and so would this band.

Lewis Johns from The Ranch recorded this song in one take the day after the fire. If you download it, the money will go to help The Cavern in its reopening. 

- Lande Hekt (Muncie Girls) 

P.S. The song is written from the narrative of Sue Townsend, author of the Adrian Mole books, on the day she and her children were left scouring the streets for money because of the welfare state’s incompetence and underfunding. 

10/08/16  Muncie Girls release single 'Respect' for Name Your Price download in aid of Refugee Action

Muncie Girls make single ‘Respect’ available for ‘Name Your Price’ download in aid of Refugee Action: (Links Below)

Exeter indie-punk trio Muncie Girls have released single ‘Respect’ for ‘Name Your Price’ download withall proceeds raising funds in aid of Refugee Action. Lande from the band explains “Refugee Action is a UK-based charity that supports refugees and asylum seekers and campaigns for a fairer asylum system. They do such important work, so check them out!”
 
‘Respect’ is taken from the band’s debut album ‘From Caplan To Belsize’ which was released earlier this year. The single is indicative of the band’s ongoing motivation to deal with social and political issues and acts as their message to any “lad” that has been caught up in the rape culture that’s rife in our current society, particularly on university campuses and online.  Fueled by discontent and anxiety, Muncie GIrls eloquently address issues of modern living as a self-aware young adult.
 

Having played a plethora of UK and European shows and festivals this year so far, Muncie Girls have also now been announced to play the BBC Introducing stage at the prestigious Reading & Leeds Festivals at the end of this month. The band will also be playing some shows in Germany in October and will embark on their very own headline tour of the UK in Nov / Dec to round off one hell of a 2016, which included a nomination for Best British Newcomer at the Kerrang! Awards and sets at the likes of Glastonbury, Download, Groezrock, The Great Escape and the BBC Radio 1 Academy event in Exeter. The A.V. Club recently named ‘From Caplan To Belsize’ in their Best Music of 2016 So far, declaring“’Respect’ has one of the year’s best choruses”

20/06/16  Muncie Girls announce 'From Caplan To Belsize' 2016 Tour in Nov/Dec

Muncie Girls have announced a seven date tour of the UK in Nov / Dec to round off one hell of a 2016. This year saw the Exeter indie-punk trio release their debut album ‘From Caplan To Belsize’ to critical acclaim and the band have been touring and playing festivals since its release back in March. They were recently nominated for Best British Newcomer at the Kerrang! Awards and have played, amongst a plethora of live shows, stellar sets at Download, Groezrock, The Great Escape and the BBC Radio 1 Academy event in Exeter.  

As vocalist and bassist Lande Hekt enthuses “We’re so excited about this tour! I can't wait to play songs from our album ‘From Caplan to Belsize’ in some of our favourite towns in the UK and sample the regional delicacies. These will actually be our only UK headline shows for the rest of the year, so we're gonna make the most of them. Stay tuned for travel journals in the style of BBC's 'The Trip'.”

Born in punk shows and dive bars to three driven teenagers in 2012, Muncie Girls embodies the classic punk rock story in a modern context. Fueled by discontent and anxiety, they eloquently address issues of modern living as a self-aware young adult. The result is an ambitious and poignant rebellion against social norms that touches on everything from politics to interpersonal relationships. ‘Respect’, the band’s latest single, is a message to any “lad” that has been caught up in the rape culture that’s rife in our current society, particularly on university campuses and online.

23/02/16  Muncie Girls release music video for new single ‘Respect’:

Debut album ‘From Caplan to Belsize’ set for release 4th March, 2016 
Headline shows, support slots and festivals lined up

 

Exeter trio Muncie Girls have been turning many a head with the first couple of tracks to be taken from forthcoming debut album ‘From Caplan To Belsize’. Now there’s a brand new single, complete with accompanying video, streaming ahead of the album’s release in a mere couple of weeks. ‘Respect’ is the band’s message to any “lad” that has been caught up in the rape culture that’s rife in our current society, particularly on university campuses and online. Vocalist and bassist Lande Hekt decided to record herself reading aloud some extracts from other writers (Stéphanie Genz and Laura Bates) that help express her feelings on the topic. These are included in the bridge of the song.
 
The much-anticipated full length will be released on 4th March, 2016 via Specialist Subject Records in the UK. Muncie Girls have also announced a trio of headline shows in March in celebration of the record. Performances in Exeter, Brighton and London will see the band tap a different supporting line-up for each date. These precede a stint on the road supporting Tellison in March / April.
