– SHARE NEW VIDEO FOR ‘DANA KATHERINE SCULLY’
– ALBUM ‘LOST TIME’ OUT NOW VIA HARDLY ART
– UK TOUR THIS MAY 

Seattle-based pop-punk band Tacocat have shared a new video for track ‘Dana Katherine Scully’ taken from their new album ‘Lost Time’, which is out now via Hardly Art. The band are set to tour the UK this May with shows in London, Nottingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Cardiff & Brighton.

Inspired by the X-Files & directed by band members Emily Nokes & Lelah Maupin, the group’s self-made music video for their album opening track ‘Dana Katherine Scully’ showcases their catchy pop-punk sounds & pays homage to the FBI investigator from the cult 90’s TV show.

The Powerpuff Girls, for which Tacocat performed the theme song ‘Who’s Got the Power?‘, premieres on Cartoon Network this Monday.

On the tour front, the band recently opened for Senator Bernie Sanders’ Seattle campaign rally at Safeco Field, to a crowd of thousands. They tour the U.S. and Europe starting tomorrow, and just announced a slew of West Coast and Southwest U.S. dates for this July. See below for a full list of upcoming Tacocatperformances.

One of the weirdest things humans do is to classify half of all humans as niche. As though women’s shit isn’t real shit—as though menses and horses and being internet-harassed aren’t as interesting as beer-farts and monster trucks and doing the harassing. That’s why Tacocat is radical: not because a female-driven band is some baffling novelty, but because they’re a group making art about experiences in which gender is both foregrounded and neutralized. This isn’t lady stuff, it’s people stuff. It’s normal. It’s nothing and everything. It’s life.

Tacocat’s third studio album, ‘Lost Time’ (an X-Files reference, doy), is their first with producer Erik Blood. “I would describe him generally as a beautiful wizard,” Nokes said, “who, in our opinion, took the album to the next level. Wizard level.” Blood’s sounds are wide and expansive, bringing a fullness to the band’s familiar sparkling snarl. The Tacocat of Lost Time are triumphantly youthful but also plainspoken and wise, as catchy as they are substantive.
