Julie Ruin Announces Album, Tour

Julie Ruin

The band, not the gal, kids… wait, what gal?!?

 By Blurt Staff

 In 1997 Riot Grrrl pioneer Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Le Tigre) released a solo album under the name‚ “Julie Ruin” with the intention of forming a band to perform the songs live. In 2010, with Le Tigre on hiatus, Kathleen recorded The Julie Ruin debut album. Titled Run Fast, the album will be released September 3rd via TJR Records, distributed via Dischord

The Julie Ruin will take off on its first national tour this year, performing at Fun Fun Fun Fest and making stops in NYC, Los Angeles DC & more. (In addition to “Just My Kind” mixed by James Murphy (DFA, LCD Soundsystem), Kathleen Hanna was at the helm, mixing “Goodnight Goodbye” and “Oh Come On” recently released as a FREE MP3.)

The Julie Ruin features Kathi Wilcox on bass (Bikini Kill bandmate), Kenny Mellman on keys (’Kiki and Herb’), Carmine Covelli on drums (actor, filmmaker), and Sara Landeau on guitar (met Kathleen mentoring at Rock Camp for Girls.)
