Muncie Girls Announce Second Album and Release New Single
Muncie Girls have announced details of their second album, Fixed Ideals, to be released 31st August via Lost Boy Records in Australia. Produced by long-term collaborator Lewis Johns (Funeral For A Friend, Rolo Tomassi, Gnarwolves) at The Ranch and mastered by Emily Lazar at The Lodge (Morrissey, Coldplay, Haim), the follow up to 2016's From Caplan To Belsize explores deep topics such as mental health, too much booze wasting potential, and personal relationships.
The announcement of the album comes alongside a new UK headline tour (supported by our very own The Hard Aches) as well as the release of the lead single with accompanying music video, Picture of Health. A catchy punk tune, it was written when Lande Hekt realised “how much easier it is to worry about your friends than it is to worry about yourself.”
Muncie Girls’ new album also marks a progression as vocalist/guitarist Hekt played both guitar and bass when they were tracking. She comments “Having two guitars sounds really different and adds intricacy to the songs. I was listening to different music when I wrote the songs and when we recorded it so that probably sounds quite different. I was listening to a lot of The Replacements, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Popguns and The Pastels so i wonder if any of that is audible! I think we all became a bit more adventurous when we were writing and recording this record.”
Pre-orders for Fixed Ideals are available now here.
