Bridgeport,
Connecticut’s Saint Bernadette are set to release ‘Word To The Lourdes‘ (Exotic Recordings) a six-song EP due April
14, and the first of three EPs they plan to release in 2009.

According to the record label, the EP’s title “alludes to the shrine in France
where the band’s namesake first saw the Virgin Mary, as well as to the
present-day Madonna’s actual daughter and her metaphorical daughters, who, like
lead singer Meredith DiMenna, grew up with the one-time Madonna Louise Veronica
Ciccone as a role model.”

 

 

Said
DiMenna, “In the 80s, Madonna kicked the door down. She was powerful and
positive and singing that women should express themselves.” But DiMenna
also considers the cost of that power: “Madonna fell into her own trap.
She believed the hype, and now she has to run around in thongs and thigh-highs
to prove it.”

“Already Gone” is the first single from ‘Word
To The Lourdes
(“wailing guitars and propelling drums make for a fierce and
catchy new-wave anthem anchored by the seductively commanding female vocals”),
and you can check it out on MP3:
