Leeds/London duo Kamikaze Girls are extremely pleased to announce that their debut EP Sad will be released on 2nd September through Bearded Punk Records (UK/EU) and Wiretap Records (US). The record is available to pre-order now.
To celebrate the news, the band have revealed the video for their new single ‘Stitches.’
The duo will also be heading out on tour this August on select Ireland dates with Belfast emo punks Apartments and UK dates with Dublin indie pop quintet The Winter Passing, as well as several other headline dates and festival appearances.
Since 2014 the Riot Grrrl duo, consisting of vocalist and guitarist Lucinda Livingstone and drummer Conor Dawson, have used music as a means to challenge attitudes and taboos surrounding mental health. Their aim has always been to show their strength and solidarity to other young people in the same position, through their vitriolic fuzz-rock and to work alongside other bands in the scene to help stamp out gender stereotypes in music for good.
