The Julie Ruin – new album – “Hit Reset” out 8th July on Hardly Art

“Hardly Art say they are “incredibly proud to announce its latest signing”, that latest signing is The Julie Ruin, the album is set for release on LP, CD, digital, and cassette formats on Friday, July 8th.  Hit Reset – “which finds the band operating at the peak of their considerable talents” – is The Julie Ruin’s first full-length since 2013’s Run Fast and the release of the biographical documentary The Punk Singer (which charts Kathleen Hanna’s career from the founding of Bikini Kill through to this latest iteration of The Julie Ruin). Leadoff single “I Decide” is here. The band has also shared a lyric video for the song, starring Waxahatchee’s Katie Crutchfield as she listens to the song for the first time at SXSW, which you can watch on this very page

 

 

Of Hit Reset’s subject matter, Kathleen Hanna says, “I was way more honest lyrically on this record because we’d been on the road together and I felt more confident taking risks in front of my bandmates,” adding “I’ve written about my personal bouts with illness, abuse, sexism and how hard it is for me to walk away from people even when they are toxic Tasmanian Devils before, but not in this way.”
