Petrol Girls are a feminist post-hardcore punk band, originally formed in London, with members from Austria, Lithuania and the UK. Now based all over the place and touring incessantly, the band are strong advocates of freedom of movement, anti capitalism and intersectional feminism.
Rooted in a DIY music community that has always combined politics with punk rock, Petrol Girls are part of a counter culture challenging mainstream values like nationalism and the gender binary, and the oppressions that these ideals promote. With a diverse range of influences such as Refused, The Slits, Fugazi and Björk, and having had the pleasure to support bands such as The Dead Kennedys, Propagandhi, La Dispute, Anti Flag and Refused, the band are constantly developing musically as well as politically.
Support from South-West hardcore punk quartet SickOnes. You may have previously caught them alongside the likes of Dead Kennedy's, Cancer Bats, Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, Loathe, Higher Power and more, and we cannot wait to see them back in Bristol!"
