Bikini Kill Launches Bikini Kill Records
The members of Bikini Kill have announced today that they are launching their own label, Bikini Kill Records. The label has already released the Bikini Kill back catalog, as well as releases by The Frumpies and Casual Dots. The label plans to re-release physical versions of the Bikini Kill catalog as well.
Here is the announcement made by the band:
“As our 25th anniversary approaches, Bikini Kill has decided to start our own record label called Bikini Kill Records. The Bikini Kill back catalog is currently available digitally as of July 17, 2012 via bikinikill.com, eMusic & iTunes. The Frumpies and Casual Dots are also up for sale now. We are working towards reissuing the physical Bikini Kill records one at a time. There are brand new Bikini Kill T Shirts available from bikinikill.com at this time with more merch to come in the near future.
Bikini Kill’s Self-Titled EP will come out in the fall of 2012 to commemorate the 20 year anniversary of its original release. We also plan to re-release our original demo tape, which contains songs that were previously unavailable and/or hard to find on vinyl & CD. We are currently going through our archive, which include photographs, practice tapes, live recordings, unreleased songs, films, video, writing, interviews, zines and flyers that we intend to feature on future releases and document on our website.
