Featuring legendary riot grrrl pioneer Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Le Tigre) at its helm, The Julie Ruin released their debut full-length album, Run Fast, last September. “Running fast” into 2014, The Julie Ruin will take their “bursting dance rock songs” (Los Angeles Times) & “engaging, endearing presence onstage” (The Austin Chronicle) to the road once more on a North American tour, including stops in Cambridge, Toronto, Cleveland, Ferndale & Chicago.

To hold fans over until the tour kicks off this spring, the band has shared a new video for album track “Goodnight Goodbye”. An intimate peek into The Julie Ruin’s touring adventures and shot on Super 8 film in Olympia, WA last year, the video premiered with Pitchfork today.

Kathleen Hanna is a celebrated, outspoken figure at the forefront of feminist punk, and the subject of Sini Anderson’s The Punk Singer documentary film. She will also be guest curating this year’s The Sled Island Music and Arts Festival. The Julie Ruin also features dream team Kathi Wilcox on bass (Bikini Kill bandmate), Kenny Mellman on keys (Kiki and Herb), Carmine Covelli on drums (actor, filmmaker and musical juggernaut) & Sara Landeau on guitar (met Kathleen mentoring at Rock Camp for Girls).

Run Fast is out now via TJR Records, distributed via Dischord.
