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.

Forming 20 years ago in North Carolina, they emerged just as metalcore and other forms of moody hard rock were beginning to take off. However, they aren't remembered for their contributions to the scene as much as how they subverted its tropes. Drawing from screamo and psychedelic space rock in equal measures, their releases 'No Wings to Speak Of' and 'The Satellite Years' to this day stand up as classics of the genre.

Photo: Paola Baltazar​ Much like prog before it, math-rock hasn't always appeared the most accessible of genres. As a form, it's designed to keep listeners on their toes, directing and misdirecting with syncopated rhythms, jagged melodic progressions and non-standard time signatures. That might not seem like a recipe for commercial success, but if there's one thing Brits can get behind it's art that's awkward, intelligent and self aware.

It’s easy to question the authenticity of any young musician who stirs up a super-sized buzz. Are they merely a record company’s latest marionette? Yet another superficial media darling destined for 15 minutes of fame? Dan Owen certainly generated significant plaudits before his debut album, ‘Stay Awake With Me’, had even been released, but the finished product revealed a special singer-songwriter who, after years of grafting for his shot at the big time, is being lauded for all the right reasons.

Crackling through a speakerphone, Joe Talbot’s voice is calm and level. “I don’t feel any pressure to do anything,” he says. “It’s up to me. I genuinely don’t care what anyone else makes of what I do. It’s up to me to be as honest to myself, and truthful to the band and our art, as possible. The rest is up to you.”

There’d be no record companies or publications trying to shape our tastes. Image would be unimportant. Sales irrelevant. Radio airplay redundant. The only thing that would matter would be the creativity of the musician and how they reflect themselves through their art.
