These are not pretty songs. This is not a pretty album.
This album is for all of us that feel betrayed or dissatisfied (or both) by society and the world in general. 'Resistance' is about empowerment, it's about feeling like a stranger in your own skin but knowing it's ok because you're not alone. It's about kicking out at all the wrongs that we as a race commit to each other. It's about standing up as one and letting the world know that we are here, we are everywhere and together we can fight back.
The novelty of an 'all female' band should have died out years, no, decades ago, in fact, it should never have been a novelty in the first place - why are we still having to prove ourselves as musicians? This album is a call to arms to keep fighting for the right to be called a 'rock' band and not be defined by our gender.
Thank you to all the fearless, angry women who have been fighting and continue to fight for equality particularly within the music industry to move it away from its sexist and archaic views on female musicians. Culture is what we make it - we must carry on their fight to change the rhetoric, we must engage and stand together.

2016 has been a funny and at times uncertain year for us...we started the year with a gig in London with a couple of friends helping us out...to not knowing if we were going to be able to carry on as a 'band'...to then having Liz join us as our new drummer and adding something brilliant and solid to the band......since then we've opened the main stage at a festival, organised and hosted our first event ('Girls to the Front!'), and have started recording our debut album, and now we've been included on this list - what a great end to the year!
Thank you so so much to everyone that has supported us in any and every way imaginable - it really does mean everything to us!
