For 10 years, Chicago queercore outfit 8 Inch Betsy played what described as “aggressive lyric-driven rock with an equal debt to riot grrl ideals, snotty ‘90s pop-punk, and the heart-on-your-sleeve honesty of artists like PJ Harvey and Nina Nastasia.” Sadly, in January 2015, front woman and primary songwriter Meghan Galbraith passed away from a year-long illness at the age of 35, leaving in her wake a legacy of love, camaraderie, and a finished album that had gone unreleased.

However, on November 13, 2015, 307 Knox Records will posthumously issue 8 Inch Betsy’s sophomore album, The Mean Days. Today, premieres “Get in the Van,” the second single to be released from the forthcoming album. Stream it below.
