Le Tigre Tour Film To Be Released June 7th!

It’s just been announced today that the highly anticipated Le Tigre tour film, Who Took the Bomp? Le Tigre On Tour, will be released on DVD June 7th by Oscilloscope Laboratories! The film follows the unabashedly feminist gals of Le Tigre on the This Island tour across four continents and ten countries. 

With a no holds bar attitude lending to a punk rock vibe, Kathleen Hanna, former Bikini Kill singer and Riot Grrl pioneer, leads Le Tigre in an electronic confrontation against sexism and homophobia in the music industry. Directed by Kerthy Fox (Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and the Magnetic Fields), the film features rare live performances, archival interviews and exciting backstage footage of these musical icons. 

Check out an exclusive clip from the film of the band’s live performance of “Deceptacon”!
