Bikini Kill Launch Record LabelPosted by Timothy Grisham
As the 25th anniversary of the launch of the seminal feminist-punk band Bikini Kill approaches, the band have launched their own label, Bikini Kill Records, to reissue their back catalog.
The band, who worked with Kill Rock Stars for the last twenty years, will begin their reissue campaign this fall by reissuing the band’s 1992 self-titled EP.
The label also plans to release Bikini Kill’s original demo tape, which includes previously unreleased material. According to their website, the band is sifting through their archives to find other rare/unreleased tracks, zines, live takes, photographs, practice tapes, films, videos, flyers and more, which they plans to share and release via Bikini Kill Records.
The band also announced that they have made their music available through EMusic, iTunes and currently their discography is streaming and downloadable on Bandcamp, with physical releases to come. Digital albums by Bikini Kill side projects the Casual Dots and the Frumpies are also available.
