Muncie Girls announce ‘From Caplan To Belsize’ UK Tour in Nov/Dec

Muncie Girls have announced a seven date tour of the UK in Nov / Dec to round off one hell of a 2016. This year saw the Exeter indie-punk trio release their debut album ‘From Caplan To Belsize’ to critical acclaim and the band have been touring and playing festivals since its release back in March. They were recently nominated for Best British Newcomer at the Kerrang! Awards and have played, amongst a plethora of live shows, stellar sets at Download, Groezrock, The Great Escape and the BBC Radio 1 Academy event in Exeter.

As vocalist and bassist Lande Hekt enthuses “We’re so excited about this tour! I can’t wait to play songs from our album ‘From Caplan to Belsize’ in some of our favourite towns in the UK and sample the regional delicacies. These will actually be our only UK headline shows for the rest of the year, so we’re gonna make the most of them. Stay tuned for travel journals in the style of BBC’s ‘The Trip’.”

Born in punk shows and dive bars to three driven teenagers in 2012, Muncie Girls embodies the classic punk rock story in a modern context. Fueled by discontent and anxiety, they eloquently address issues of modern living as a self-aware young adult. The result is an ambitious and poignant rebellion against social norms that touches on everything from politics to interpersonal relationships. ‘Respect’, the band’s latest single, is a message to any “lad” that has been caught up in the rape culture that’s rife in our current society, particularly on university campuses and online.
