GIRLS AGAINST BOYS COME ON BOARD

We are pleased to announce that we have added Brooklyn-based Girls Against
Boys
to the label. The as-of-yet untitled debut, will be the seventh album
for the band, their first full length release since 1998′s lauded
Freak*on*ica (Geffen). It will be released on May 14, and available for
pre-order on March 19.

The band is currently in the studio with producer Ted Nicely (Fugazi,
Shudder to Think, Jawbox) behind the board. This will be the fourth album
helmed by Nicely, who produced all of bands acclaimed GVSB’s Touch N Go
releases (House of GVSB (1996), Cruise Yourself (1994) and Venus Luxure #1
Baby (1993)). Tracking is being done at Mission Sound in Brooklyn — mixing
will be done at the band’s Williamsburg, NY studio. The 11-song album,
according to the band, will be "stripped-down, bare-assed rock — as dark,
abrasive, and strangely compelling as we’ve ever been".

Formed in 1990 from the ashes of legendary DC hardcore bands (most notably
Soulside), Girls Against Boys have released six albums on such varied labels
as Adult Swim, Touch & Go and Geffen, in addition to numerous singles & EPs.
They have also contributed to soundtracks for the movies: Clerks, Mallrats,
Permanent Midnight, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Suburbia and 200 Cigarettes.
GVSB have toured the world extensively by themselves and with bands such as
Fugazi, the Jesus Lizard, Rage Against the Machine, Garbage, Hole and
Jawbox,, as well as appearing in such festivals as Lollapalooza, Reading,
Mt. Fuji and SXSW.

Girls Against Boys will be doing select dates over the Winter, and hitting
the road in March, which includes a performance at SXSW. The album release
will be supported by extensive touring, in the US and overseas, throughout
2002.
