Queer punk royalty PWR BTTM has announced the UK release of their debut LP Ugly Cherries and shared new track “Projection”.
Discussing “Projection”, band member Ben Hopkins said: "'Projection' is a song about feeling unqualified to be the way you see yourself because of the way other people see you, and how other people's perception of your identity can warp your sense of self. It's about being exhausted with the pressure of fitting in and throwing a shiny, glorious middle finger to those who doubt you."
Comprised of Hopkins and Liv Bruce, PWR BTTM was formed at Bard College where the duo bonded over their desire to inject the DIY punk scene with elements of drag and performance. Ugly Cherries will be released on 7 October via Big Scary Monsters followed by dates across the UK with The Spook School. You can pre-order the record via bsmrocks.com
