Bikini Kill is back, baby! Pitchfork reported that the riot grrrl band from Olympia, Washington has announced a reunion tour for 2019. Singer/songwriter Kathleen Hanna, bassist Kathi Wilcox, and drummer Tobi Vail will be joined by a new guitarist, Erica Dawn Lyle, for three shows: one show in L.A. and two shows in New York.
Bikini Kill disbanded in 1997, reuniting briefly in 2017 to play one song at an event celebrating the Raincoats, a '70s British punk band. Bikini Kill’s discography wasn’t added to streaming services until last year.
Here at BUST, we’ll be listening to "Rebel Girl" on repeat until the tour starts!
