Happy Monday and a happy album release to The Julie Ruin! ‘Hit Reset’, the band’s highly-anticipated new record is finally out on CD, LP, cassette, and digital formats via Hardly Art. Tomorrow, The Julie Ruin will perform live on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers and the band hits the road in support of ‘Hit Reset’ starting next Thursday night in Chicago. Rookie Magazine recently shared The Julie Ruin’s music video for ‘I’m Done,’ the first music video from the album. Director Laura Parnes’ clip for the band’s defiant, anthemic ‘I’m Done’ features riot grrrl pioneer and front-woman Kathleen Hanna teaming up with a gaggle of iconic iterations of her past self in a karaoke battle against haters everywhere. Perfect.
The 13-song album is the follow up to 2013’s Run Fast and is due for release on July 8th through Hardly Art. In a press release 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.”
‘Hit Reset’ is available on limited edition white vinyl right here on Hardly Art
