Baltimore’s feminist punk heroes War On Women have premiered a brand new video for the track “Glass City” over on Bitch Magazine. This track appears on the band’s recently released, self-titled debut full-length which tackles issues of institutionalized sexism and patriarchy through an uproarious blend of riot grrrl, thrash and rock with sarcastic dalliances and furious aggression. Featuring 11 tracks, the album was recorded with J. Robbins at the Magpie Cage (Against Me!, Coliseum, Lemuria) and is a natural progression for the band and a little more polished than their previous efforts, while remaining as blistering as ever.
War On Women formed in 2010 by several veterans of the Baltimore rock scene, including members of AVEC and Liars Academy. The band’s furious live sets capture all of the brevity and intensity of hardcore punk with another level of lyrical and musical sophistication. This May, War On Women will support punk rock stalwarts Anti Flag on a string of shows that’ll take them from the Midwest out to Denver (with more shows to be announced soon).
