Bikini Kill Are Back with a vengeance
Hailed as kick starting the riot grrrl revolution of the 90s, Bikini Kill opened doors for woman to reclaim their space and air the grievances in true punk rock fashion with outspoken political opinions, radical feminist lyrics and a determination to be accepted as a band on their own terms, blazing a trail for women in music ever since their formation. It's been 22 years since the fierce female quartet was last seen spreading their heady anarchy on stage, so their reformation and announcement of new shows in 2019 truly is history in the making.
Front woman Kathleen Hanna, bassist Kathi Wilcox and drummer Tobi Vail will be joined by guitarist Erica Dawn Lyle for a hotly anticipated Summer reunion tour, a timely jaunt considering tumultuous current events concerning women, from the MeToo movement to reproductive rights and workplace inequality. Anti-establishment to the core, Bikini Kill returns to reignite the cultural resistance against the patriarchy with anthems like 'Rebel Girl', 'Double Dare Ya' and 'Feels Blind'.
