On the run up to the release of their debut album ‘Talk Of Violence’, feminist post-hardcore band Petrol Girls have unveiled new song ‘Restless’ along with a Halloween themed music video that features werewolves and pumpkin vaginas. During their live sets Ren Aldridge has stated on numerous occasions that ‘Restless’ is about “the female orgasm from the perspective of a werewolf burning down government buildings” and they’ve definitely gone to town on that concept for the music video as the band dress up as werewolves to chase men and burn billboards depicting traditional ideals.

This release follows a music video for the single ‘Phallocentric’ which saw people painting each other in a way that was based on Yves Klein’s performance art piece where he had naked women use paint to print their bodies. The band definitely have strong opinions and ideas when it comes to social issues, and their music videos bring those ideas to life in an interesting and cinematic way.
Petrol Girls are currently bringing their sociopolitical sound to Europe after a successful headline run in the UK.
‘Talk of Violence’ is out on the 18th of November through Bomber Music.
