Indie rock troupe Muncie Girls will be heading back out on the road in March for their first shows in well over six months, having most recently played the main stage at 2000trees festival last summer. Prior to that, they’d spent much of 2018 and 2019 touring, sharing stages with the likes of Taking Back Sunday, Frank Iero and The GetUp Kids in the UK & Europe, as well as playing shows as far away from home as Australia and Japan.
Muncie Girls’ latest album ‘Fixed Ideals’ was released in 2018 via Specialist Subject Records in the UK & Europe and Buzz Records in North America with Lost Boy Records doing the honours in Australia. The record has been praised for its insightful social commentary and endearing melodies. As much as it feels like you’re being read passages direct from vocalist and guitarist Lande Hekt’s diary, with her ideas and heart laid bare, the songs within will also be relatable to many and are certainly thought-provoking.
‘Fixed Ideals’ tackles themes of anxiety and mental health head-on, as well as delving into the effects of too much alcohol and wasting potential. It speaks of having a desire to be educated, focusing on personal relationships and the importance of friendship and family.
MUNCIE GIRLS ARE:
Lande Hekt – Guitar / Vocals
Dean McMullen – Guitar
Luke Ellis – Drums
