Muncie Girls Reveal Details Of Sophomore LP 'Fixed Ideals', Confirm Autumn UK Tour

Wednesday, 13 June 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Muncie Girls have announced their second album.

'Fixed Ideals', the follow up to 2016's 'From Caplan to Belsize',  is due to arrive on August 31, with a UK tour set to follow in September and October. Tickets go on sale at 10am on June 15. Head below for dates.

Speaking about playing both bass and guitar on the record, Lande Hekt said:

“Having two guitars sounds really different and adds intricacy to the songs. I was listening to different music when I wrote the songs and when we recorded it so that probably sounds quite different. I was listening to a lot of The Replacements, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Popguns and The Pastels so i wonder if any of that is audible! I think we all became a bit more adventurous when we were writing and recording this record.”

Watch a video for the album's first single, Picture Of Health, and check out the artwork and tracklist, below.

1. Jeremy

Muncie Girls - Fixed Ideals (Album Review)
Thu 13 Sep 2018
‘Fixed Ideals’ begins in medias res. Lande Hekt is tired, anxious and furiously angry. “I’m gonna get a tattoo that says: fuck Jeremy Clarkson and fuck you too,” she sings. The album’s opener is something of a blueprint for what follows, fusing fabulous melodies with brass tacks insights into her own life and a vivid, despondent view of a world that has lurched right with little concern for the people getting crushed in the gears.
