HIRS announce LP ft. Shirley Manson, Laura Jane Grace, Marissa Paternoster, & more


Philly’s grindcore-ish queer punk collective HIRS are touring with Screaming Females and Thou this spring, and they’ve just announced that their first full-length album will come out during that tour. As Stereogum points out, the album features tons of highly impressive guests, including Screaming Females singer Marissa Paternoster, as well as Garbage’s Shirley Manson, Against Me!’s Laura Jane Grace, Limp Wrist/Los Crudos’ Martin Crudo, G.L.O.S.S.’s Sadie Switchblade, Soul Glo’s Pierce, RVIVR’s Erica Freas, The Bags’ Alice Bag, and more.

The LP is called Friends. Lovers. Favorites., and it drops on April 20 via Get Better/SRA. The album also comes with the previously-released You Can’t Kill Us EP, and a remixed version of that EP called You Can Remix Us including Moor Mother remixing opener “Not For You.” No music is out from the album yet, but you can see the full tracklist below, alongside streams of You Can’t Kill Us and the more recent How To Stop Street Harassment EP.

UPDATE: The video for closing track “Outnumbered” is out now and you can watch below.

The tour with Screaming Females and Thou includes a NYC show on April 6 at Market Hotel (tickets).
