Punk rock has never had a better time to be alive than right now, and one of the groups making the most out of the re-awakening of punk is Bikini Kill.
Hailing from Olympia, Washington, this punk rock outfit has blessed the music world with is abrasive, in-your-face sound that is attracted them a ton of fans in their heyday.
When the band formed in 1990, they were the pioneers of a sub-genre of punk called riot grrl. Most of Bikini Kill’s earlier songs were steered in extreme feminism, and their live shows were simply the stuff of legend. Bikini Kill was on the scene for seven years, attracting a legion of fans and scaring the daylights out of suburban families; but their time was short, and they disbanded in 1997.
As the old saying goes, however, you can’t keep a great punk band down, and in 2019, they have reformed at, quite possibly, the best time at this moment in music history. To get the word out that one of the ‘90s more notorious punk bands is back on the scene, Bikini Kill has announced that they will embark on their first tour in 22 years, and AXS.com has your ticket to this fun, exciting tour that will hit the New York area in the summer.
