Petrol girls release video for “Touch Me Again”

Petrol Girls  have released the video for “Touch Me Again” taken from their debut album “Talk Of Violence”. The Video is made up of submissions from fans.

The band had the following to say about the video

“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.”

Petrol Girls release ‘Restless’ – new single & music video for Halloween:

Restless is the latest single to be lifted from feminist post hardcore group Petrol Girls’ forthcoming debut album Talk of Violence which will be released via Bomber Music on 18th November, 2016. Vocalist Ren Aldridge had this to say about the song;

“It’s about the female orgasm from the perspective of a werewolf that likes to burn down government buildings. It’s a demand for pleasure in sex and a statement that the liberation of women is central to overthrowing the white supremacist capitalist patriarchy. For me, it’s all about my experiences during the anti-austerity movement in London around 2010/11, which was a key part of my political development, especially in terms of thinking about how violence is defined.”
