soap girls

The SoapGirls brand new album, the angry, reflective and beautifully honest 'Society's Rejects' is out on July 28th and it's full of straight up rock'n'roll songs containing tons of energy, flashes of anger and serrated guitar-driven angst, attitude, swagger and raw rasping vocals.

The SoapGirls' uncompromising brand of music has been labelled 'Revolt Rock', a mix of revolting and revolutionary music. The girls have previously said:

"Put it this way, if music was a hand, revolt rock would be the middle finger. It's there to piss people off and make them think in this fucked up world."

"Stand up, you know you'll be shot down; life's free but you're gonna pay somehow," sings Mille on the opening title track, setting the tone for the whole album about society and how it "rejects anyone that tries to question the system. We are sold a dream of being free when in actual fact we're not. If you do not conform and follow the guidelines society sets out for you you are vilified and rejected."

The fifteen tracks on the album include previous singles as bonus tracks: the primal and emotional break up song 'Rather Be Dead' and 'Bad Bitch', a caustic slice of vitriolic rock'n'roll.

The SoapGirls also bring humour to the situation with 'Party In Hell'. "Life's already fucked up so might as well rock the party however you like. The politicians are so why can't we?"

Armed with a venomous swagger and catchy, riff-oriented guitar grind, backed up by their strong songwriting abilities, dedication and determination to their craft, The SoapGirls have earned themselves a formidable live reputation and this raucous force of nature with a love for screaming guitars, in your face bass, and raw vocals have delivered a statement of intent with their exceptional debut.

The striking artwork captures their vision and fights back for women rights.

"First of all society tells you to cover yourself and be 'decent' so in true SoapGirl fashion of course we weren't gonna do that."

Political agitators The SoapGirls, the French born sisters Ca(Millie) and Noe(MIE) Debray, hail from South Africa and were given their name by the general public back in 2004.

"We've been The SoapGirls since we were eight and nine selling hand made soap and street performing for various causes. We did this 365 days of the year for nine years."

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
