Legendary all-female British hard rockers Girlschool are gearing up to storm North America for the first time in 20 years, intent on proving they’re the hardest rocking bunch of females to ever destroy a stage… But they’ll have some competition, because they’re taking Swedish headbangers Crucified Barbara across the Atlantic as part of a combined invasion.
Girlschool will be previewing tracks from their new album, Guilty As Sin, set for release later this summer on UDR Music and will be selling a special edition EP, Propaganda! exclusively at shows. The EP features two songs from the new album, (‘Take It Like A Band’ and ‘Come, The Revolution’) as well as revisiting two tracks from their classic Hit And Run album in the form of rerecorded versions of ‘Kick It Down’ and ‘Watch Your Step’. Rounding out the limited edition EP, is the girls’ blistering cover of The Bee Gees’ classic ‘Staying Alive’. Both Propaganda! and Guilty As Sin were helmed by legendary producer Chris Tsangarides (Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy).
For Crucified Barbara it will be their second return to North America in three years. With a new label, Despotz Records, and new album, In The Red. Produced by Chips Kiesbye (The Hellacopters, Millencolin), the album is said to feature “eleven tracks of pure mayhem”.
Support on all dates through the USA and Canada from May through to June will be from Old James and Velvet Black.
