Joanna Gruesome gif animation comic

Cardiff-based noisepop group Joanna Gruesome have announced a split 7″ with Perfect Pussy. The release comes packaged in a 24-page comic book, illustrated by cartoonist Phil McAndrew (brother of Perfect Pussy’s guitarist Ray McAndrew). The heroine in McAndrew’s comic is a “split” between Joanna Gruesome front woman Alanna McArdle and Meredith Graves of Perfect Pussy, who battles misogynists, online trolls and haters everywhere. Both bands share a new track from the upcoming release. Listen to Joanna Gruesome’s Psykick Espionage lifted from the 7″ via Soundcloud below.

The 7″ is being co-released by Captured Tracks, Slumberland and Fortuna Pop. There will be a very limited number of copies available on their upcoming US tour. The 7″ will be available online and in stores this fall (release date TBA).

Joanna Gruesome’s debut album ‘Weird Sister’ is out now via Slumberland Records (US) and Fortuna Pop! (UK) on vinyl/CD and digital formats.
