Petrol Girls To Contribute New Song For ‘Loud Women’ Compilation

Petrol GirlsLondon feminist post-hardcore quartet Petrol Girls have announced that they will be contributing the song, “Touch Me Again,” to the upcoming Loud Women – Volume 1 compilation, which is set to drop on March 18, 2017.  The band comments:

“It’s really positive to be able to put Touch Me Again, a song about our rights to our bodies, on a compilation that raises money for a grassroots organisation dealing with domestic violence. Women’s Aid are committed to putting survivors voices at the heart of their actions and politically campaign on the wider sexist context of this violence, alongside running services to support survivors. It’s also always great to be on a compilation alongside a load of awesome feminist bands, including loads of our mates! We had a brilliant time playing Loud Women Fest last year, and its so encouraging and inspiring to see everything Cassie is doing with Loud Women and support it where we can.”

Pre-orders are live.
