With Bikini Kill
Press statement: “The memoir traces Hanna’s life from her tumultuous childhood
home to her formative college years in Olympia, Washington, and on to her first years
on tour, fighting hard for gigs and for her band. Hanna makes clear that surviving as a
singer who was a lightning rod for controversy took limitless amounts of determination
as she and her bandmates faced male violence and antagonism at every turn. In an uncut
voice all her own, Hanna reveals the hardest times along with the most joyful — and how
it continues to fuel her revolutionary art and music.
With The Julie Ruin
The book will also dig into the relationships with various bandmates such as Tobi Vail,
Kathi Wilcox, and Johanna Fateman, the time she spent with Kurt Cobain and Ian MacKaye,
her marriage to Ad-Rock of the Beastie Boys, battling Lyme disease, and how the Riot Grrrl movement has evolved over the years. ”
The past 2 years Hanna went on a reunion tour with Bikini Kill and does the same
thing now with Le Tigre. Watch them play Primavera Sound Fest in Barcelona last June.
