Track: Venus Grrrls – Bloodsick

Venus Grrrls return with their new single ‘Bloodsick’ which follows up from their previous single ‘Divine‘. The band also share details of their first-ever UK headline tour set for September after recently playing their biggest headline performance at The Brudenell Social Club in Leeds.

‘Bloodsick’ was recorded by Sugar House and mixed/mastered by Grammy-nominated Romesh Dodangoda (Bring Me The Horizon, Nova Twins)

“Bloodsick describes a change or a metamorphosis of a being that has become far more insular and isolated,” GK says of the track, “It is a grief of what once was, that transcends into a bittersweet liberation of a new body, or way of living both physically and emotionally.” 

This is Venus Grrrls well and truly ploughing their own furrow as one of the best punk rock bands with a message. The vocal brilliance of GK adds a touch of melodic sweetness over Hannah Barraclough’s and Gabby Cook’s heavy backline while Eliza Lee and Grace Stubbings add a touch of colour. The bottom line is this track hits hard and is just one of the many reasons they sell out gigs.

As well as new music, VENUS GRRLS have also announced details of their first-ever headline tour. In a move that speaks to VENUS GRRRLS own experience with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML), the band have partnered with stem cell transplant charity Anthony Nolan. 

Anthony Nolan uses its register of 900,000 people to match potential stem cell donors to blood cancer and blood disorder patients in need of stem cell transplants. All shows on the 8-date run will have Anthony Nolan volunteers present to provide more information about stem cells, their role in treating AML via transplant and the importance of people aged 16-30 signing up to the stem cell register.

Charlotte Cunliffe, Director of Register Development at Anthony Nolan says:

“When people in the public eye, like GK, share their experiences, it inspires others to seek out how they can help which is why we’re thrilled VENUS GRRRLS will be encouraging their fans to learn more about stem cell donation on tour.”

“At Anthony Nolan, we know that one individual can transform the lives of patients with blood cancer and blood disorders. VENUS GRRLS fans – your stem cells could hold the key to someone’s survival and starts with a simple swab. We need people aged 16-30, particularly young men and those from minority ethnic backgrounds, to join the Anthony Nolan register. By doing so, you could be the lifeline someone desperately needs, offering them a second chance at life.”
