Joanna Gruesome Line Up Tours With Los Campesinos And Speedy Ortiz

Friday, 15 November 2013 Written by Jon Stickler

Cardiff noisepop five-piece Joanna Gruesome will be embarking on two UK tours to celebrate the release of their debut album 'Weird Sister', which is out now on Fortuna POP! First up, they play to big crowds with Los Campesinos and then on to gigs with US DIY punks Speedy Ortiz early next year.

'Weird Sister' is the band's first foray away from recording in a living room to a proper studio under the guidance of producer MJ, of the much-lauded Hookworms. 

Comprising Alanna on vocals, Owen on guitar, Max on bass, George on guitar and Dave on drums, Joanna Gruesome draw inspiration from DIY scenes such as Riot Grrrl/noisepop/C86 /K-Records as well as post hardcore outfits like Drive Like Jehu, Converge and the art rock of The Velvet Underground and My Bloody Valentine.

Check out the animated video for latest single Sugarcrush, as well as the single's b-side Tugboat, below.

Catch Joanna Gruesome on tour with Los Campesinos next month and alongside Speedy Ortiz in February next year.
