Punk Rock Pioneer, Alice Bag’s Politically Charged Single Drops w/ Jezebel Today, Debut Solo LP out 6/24‏

Iconic punk rock feminist, author, educator and musician Alice Bag will release her self-titled solo debut album Alice Bag, June 24 on Don Giovanni Records. As with all of Bag’s artistic endeavours, this album is unabashedly honest and unafraid. Alice Bag features all original material written by Bag and includes performances by some of her favorite LA-based musicians.

Poetically biting lyrics set the stage for previously shared, sassy first single “No Means No” and today she shows her moodier, bluesier sound with politically charged “Poisoned Seed” premiered with Jezebel today. Listen to “Poisoned Seed” HERE.

Alice was lead singer and co-founder of The Bags, one of the first wave punk bands to form in the mid-1970’s in Los Angeles, CA. She was featured in the seminal documentary on punk rock, The Decline of Western Civilization and went on to perform in other groundbreaking bands, including Castration Squad, Cholita, and Las Tres. She has published two books, including the critically acclaimed memoir Violence Girl which is now required reading in gender and musicology courses throughout the country + the self-published Pipe Bomb For the Soul, based on her experiences in post-revolutionary Nicaragua. Her influence on popular music is highlighted in the Smithsonian exhibit, American Sabor.

There will be an album release party on July 2 at The Echo in Bag’s hometown of Los Angeles, CA with support from Generacion Suicida and Kim and The Created. Info and tickets available HERE.
