New video – The Julie Ruin, ‘I Decide’
The Julie Ruin has just released a lyric video for the lead-off single from their next album. Hit Reset is scheduled for release July 8 on Hardly Art. It’s the band’s first full-length since 2013’s Run Fast and the release of the biographical documentary The Punk Singer. That documentary charts singer Kathleen Hanna‘s career from the founding of Bikini Kill through to this latest iteration of The Julie Ruin.
The lyric video for the song stars Waxahatchee‘s Katie Crutchfield as she listens to the song for the first time at SXSW.
In a media release, Hanna says of Hit Reset‘s subject matter: “I was way more honest lyrically on this record because we’d been on the road together and I felt more confident taking risks in front of my bandmates,” and “I’ve written about my personal bouts with illness, abuse, sexism and how hard it is for me to walk away from people even when they are toxic Tasmanian Devils before, but not in this way.”
