Petrol Girls release 'Fang' music video

Having brought their thrillingly abrasive live show to 2000trees and Glastonbury Festivals over the past couple of weeks, Petrol Girls have revealed a music video for ‘Fang’, which documents the band’s time on the road over the past few months.

 
‘Fang’ is taken from Petrol Girls’ debut album ‘Talk of Violence’ which was released to critical acclaim last year. The band have been on the road ever since and are continuing a busy summer festival schedule with Rebellion, Punk Rock Holiday and Boomtown in August.
 
Never ones to shy away from provoking conversation and always standing vehemently against sexual violence and harassment in the music community, Petrol Girls’ current festival set includes a soundscape incorporating fans’ accounts of harassment at festivals as a pre-cursor to their track ‘Touch Me Again..’
 
LIVE DATES:
AUGUST

4th Rebellion Festival, Manchester

11th-13th Boomtown Fair, Hampshire 


SEPT 

2nd Loud Women Fest, London

9th Stains In The Sun, Germany

 ‘Touch Me Again’ music video:

 

Petrol Girls’ visceral and all-too-relatable ‘Touch Me Again’ is the latest single to be revealed from their 2016 debut album ‘Talk of Violence’. The caustic track now has a music video made up from submissions from Petrol Girls’ community. As Ren from the band elaborates: "Thanks loads to everyone that submitted phone videos for our video, and extra big thanks to Sammi Whitaker for putting it all together! The song grew from my own experiences of sexual violence, both within and outside of the punk community and from our commitment to speaking about consent whenever we get an opportunity. We hope that this video project has opened that platform up to more people that share the same or similar experiences, and that this collective project has been in some way empowering. The protest chant 'MY BODY MY CHOICE' is becoming more and more relevant as political attacks on women and other marginalised bodies increase. Hopefully this video can be just one small way of helping us remember that there are many of us, and together we are powerful." 
 
The band are about to hit the road across the UK and Europe for a series of festivals and shows and they’re using this opportunity to bring their message to the masse. Once again, they’re calling on the punk community to get involved with their own experiences and be a part of the band’s set. See below for touring details and a note from the band.

Ren elaborates “I'm definitely not the only one feeling a bit overwhelmed by the state of politics right now, and touring always ends up being a great way of meeting people to rage, dance, hug and organise with. 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." 
 
On the 29th March, Ren will also perform solo at the book launch for ‘Nasty Women’, a book project which she contributed to. Tickets and further info via the link below

 

Petrol Girls released their debut album ‘Talk of Violence’ via Bomber Music on 18th November, 2016. Caustic and pertinent, Petrol Girls’ live show has to be seen in the flesh to really be experienced. The band combine manic jagged rhythms with vocals that range from furious screaming to intricate melodies and harmonies. Influenced by Refused, White Lung, Bikini Kill, Fugazi, RVIVR, Propagandhi, At The Drive-In and War On Women, Petrol Girls have sculpted a sound and a performance that is not only explosive, but highly detailed and raucous. They identify as a feminist band and draw on personal experiences to challenge and ridicule sexism, as well as exploring wider political themes, such as alienation, mental health and the current anti-austerity movement. Sometimes desperate and sometimes defiant.
