Check out the news you might have missed today below!
1. Sharptooth sign with Pure Noise Records, release video for debut album title track
Frontwoman Lauren Kashan talked about the new single with Metal Injection commenting, “the track is all about aggressively fighting back against the hands that chain us. It’s about ‘biting back’ against oppression of all forms, be that by people in your life, in your society, or systemic forms of oppression like sexism, racism and bigotry. The song was inspired by an argument I had with a guy who tried to tell me and a bunch of other women (many of us survivors of sexual assault) about how WE should feel about sexual violence.”
