Glitoris have earned a reputation as one of Australia’s most fearlessly political, uncompromising and unforgettable live acts. After extensively played and widely received singles, Trump Card, Spit Hood and The Policy, Glitoris were crowned ‘Queens of Australian Punk’ (The Brag) and the band have wasted no time in following up with their brutal, unapologetic hard rock anthem Slut Power (out now): a raging call-to-arms dealing with the insidious nature of violence against women.
Straight off the back of winning the National Live Music Award (NLMA’s) for ‘Hard Rock Live Act of the Year’ (2019), 2020 sees Glitoris embark on their biggest national tour to date, starting in Alice Springs (6th March), a special International Women’s Day performance in Darwin (7th March) and finishing up in their home town of Canberra (23rd May). Bringing a brand new show to the stage, complete with a powerful new image and a rallying protest befitting our times, fans can expect the band to be at their rousing, political yet satirical best.
Glitoris is Keven 007 (vocals and guitar), Andrew (Lead guitar and vocals), Malcolm (Bass and vocals) and Scott (Drums). Highly energetic, deeply political, satirical and sometimes absurd, Glitoris blends frenetic punk rock, classic hard rock riffs, metal prowess, pop harmonies and a dash of theatre with badass attitude and indelible songwriting, resulting in a unique, powerful and unrelenting musical force. Widely recognised as ‘One of the fiercest live forces in the country’ (Pile Rats), Glitoris has built an army of fans – The Gliterati – all over the country, toured extensively and performed at major national and international festivals including Groovin’ The Moo, The New Zealand Fringe Festival, Triple R Kyneton Festival and Blackwoodstock Festival (New Caledonia). Glitoris has performed as much with brand new acts as they have with established punk royalty, including Frenzal Rhomb, Regurgitator, Shonen Knife and The Meanies.
The diverse, politically on-point and refreshing nature of Glitoris’ sound means they are equally at home touring and performing as headliners or major supports, at festivals or sharing bills with new pop/rock/indie acts. Join Glitoris in 2020 for what promises to be their fiercest single and tour yet \*/
