Today Cardiff-based noisepop group Joanna Gruesome announces a split 7″ with Perfect Pussy. The release comes packaged in a 24-page comic book, illustrated by cartoonist Phil McAndrew (brother of Perfect Pussy’s guitarist Ray McAndrew). The heroine in McAndrew’s comic is a “split” between Joanna Gruesome front woman Alanna McArdle and Meredith Graves of Perfect Pussy, who battles misogynists, online trolls and haters everywhere.
The 7″ is being co-released by Captured Tracks, Slumberland and Fortuna Pop. There will be a very limited number of copies available on their upcoming US tour. The 7″ will be available online and in stores this fall (release date TBA).
