L.A. punk icon Alice Bag has announced her new album Sister Dynamite, due out April 24 on In The Red Records. Her third solo effort, the album marks a thrilling return to the full-throttle punk that Bag pioneered with her legendary first-wave punk band, The Bags. An unbridled celebration of community and the undeniable power in embracing your own truth, the collection confronts some of the most pervasive problems troubling our world today: unchecked privilege and willful ignorance, systemic inequality and fragile masculinity. Bag will kick off a national spring tour on March 6 in Vancouver, joining her like minded sisters Bikini Kill on several dates. Tickets will go on-sale Friday February 28 @ 12:00pm local time.
Laced with dreamy glockenspiel tones and brilliantly bratty backup vocals from riot grrrl frontliner Allison Wolfe, the video for lead single “Breadcrumbs” depicts a Hansel and Gretel flavored cautionary tale about not treating your partner like a witch. It features Bob Baker Marionette Theater as well as a colorful cast of familiar faces including Allison Wolfe, Nina Diaz, Seth Bogart as well as members of The Linda Lindas, Death Valley Girls and Fresno grrrl gang Fatty Cakes & the Puff Pastries. “‘Breadcrumbs’ is actually inspired by working with Allison,” notes Bag, who previously played alongside Wolfe and Seth Bogart in a band called Cliquey Bitches. “She’s got tons of attitude, and the intonation on that song is totally me imagining Allison singing it.”
