London power-punk risers Alien Chicks share gripping new effort ’Curtains Up’ (video here), out today via Hideous Mink Records (Opus Kink, Fake Turins, Black Bordello) & SO Recordings (Enter Shikari, Deadletter, Big Special).

Marking the third and final reveal from upcoming debut EP ‘Indulging The Mobs’ (pre-order here), set for release July 18th, ‘Curtains Up’ follows biting lead single ‘Steve Buscemi’ and frenetic follow-up ‘Qwerty’, with their surreal social commentary drawing substantial acclaim throughout the tastemaker community ahead of a busy summer festival run.

With a UK tour support ticked off alongside indie heavyweights English Teacher late last year, the thriving trio have developed a staunch grassroots following in recent times, with multiple sold-out London headliners and dates supporting Lambrini Girls, Fat Dog, Opus Kink and Warmduscher.

With support filtering across the BBC Radio 1 (Jack Saunders, Arielle Free, Amy Lamé), BBC 6 Music (Steve Lamacq, Tom Robinson) and Radio X (John Kennedy) airwaves, as well as key indie press champions including The Independent, DIY, Dork, CMU and Rough Trade, Alien Chicks’s relentless momentum certainly continues to gather pace ahead of next month’s debut EP release.

Speaking ahead of their newest release, frontman Joe explained: “‘Curtains Up’ is recurring periodic anxiety. I’ve suffered badly from health anxiety and ‘Curtains Up’ was a representation of how I've felt before. It also discusses how long adulting is generally and how that affects how anxiety manifests itself. Basically it's a few minutes of moaning”.

Alien Chicks’ ‘Curtains Up’ is out now via Hideous Mink Records and SO Recordings and available on all digital platforms.
