Portland hardcore punks Cliterati (Poison Idea, Voetsek, et al) are currently streaming their forthcoming self-titled EP via Bandcamp. The five-track effort will officially be released through Tankcrimes on December 9. Vocalist Ami Lawless issued the following statement regarding the release:
“Cliterati is a band who believe in equality through inclusion. We are queer, straight, people of color, and white,…our influences include the bands Doom, L7, and Bolt Thrower with a healthy dose of Pacific Northwest D-punk. This band was brought together by Amelia Collins and we continue in loving memory of her vision to bring a breath of fresh air to Portland punk. These five rippers are the result of spending many hours in a dark dank Portland basement while smoking copious amounts of weed. Hopefully these songs will make you wanna get your clit in the pit. The positive responses at our live shows has been off the hook. We’re looking forward to taking Cliterati on the road in 2017.”
