Petrol Girls are one of the best hardcore feminist bands around.

Feminist post-hardcore punk band Petrol Girls have announced a handful of UK tour dates to promote their latest album – with tickets initially available for just £5.

The band have been getting rave write-ups for their second album, Cut & Stitch which came out a few weeks ago – read our review here.

Now they have announced a string of UK dates for September, starting with an appearance at the Loud Women Festival in London.

 In a statement, the band, fronted by Ren Aldridge, said: “We’re super excited to finally be doing a short UK headline run this September, to celebrate the release of our new album Cut & Stitch.

“So far, people have been really sweet and positive towards the new songs and we’re really excited to play them live.

“There will be a limited amount of cheap £5 tickets during the first two weeks of pre-sale which are explicitly aimed at folks that simply can’t afford to pay more to get into a show, but still want to come out and have a good time.”
