Muncie Girls Share New Song Locked Up And North American Dates

Thursday, 02 August 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Muncie Girls have announced North American tour dates and shared a new song.

Locked up is the latest track to emerge from the UK pop-punk trio's sophomore record, 'Fixed Ideals', following previously shared singles Falling Down and Picture of Health. It clocks in at just two minutes and finds vocalist Lande Hekt questioning our fucked up society. She said in a statement:

"I’ve never felt like I fit in to 'normal' life and I often find myself trying to articulate/make sense of it. I wrote a list of a lot of things that I find bizarre and overwhelming about (my version of) society that we’re expected to not only accept, but celebrate. It’s kind of depressing really. It has a lot to do with growing up as well and the horrors of being a weird teenage girl.

"The line, 'I can’t be the only one to see the ghost in the room' is in there because my friend said that she’d heard someone say something similar about veganism. The chorus is about how we get trapped by what we don’t question, but it’s also about the prison system and it’s about being claustrophobic, which was in part inspired by my love of the song Franklin Prison Blues by Onsind. The guitar riff at the start I came up with when I was listening to a lot of the Replacements."

The follow up to 2016's 'From Caplan to Belsize' is out on August 31 through Specialist Subject and the band will accompany the release with a UK and European tour towards the end of September and into October.

They will then cross the pond for eight North American shows, including stops in Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Boston, Toronto, Chicago, Seattle, Portland and Los Angeles during November. Tickets go on general sale at 10am on August 3.

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.

td#right {display:none !important;} A new year brings with it the chance to look ahead after a few weeks of looking back over our shoulders. In musical terms, we can start to think about the artists who’ll capture our attention on summer festival stages, or during opening slots for existing favourites. We can ponder the singles that’ll leap from radio waves or playlists into the fabric of our day-to-day. Here we’ve assembled 10 artists we believe will make 2019 one to remember—some of them are about to release debut records, others are starting to pound the pavement in support of music that deserve time to shine.
