South African all-female Metal band Junkyard Lipstick have released a new song. Titled Trafficked & Tortured, this song makes me excited for their album coming up soon. Awesome stuff! They have also recruited a new bass guitar player, Katinka Janse van Rensburg. Welcome to the band, Katinka!
Listen to the song and read what Junkyard Lipstick had to say about both the song and their new bass guitarist below!
We are excited to release our new single,“Trafficked and Tortured”. This song is a taste of what’s to come off our soon-to-be-released album “Repulsive Judgement”. This will follow up our 2014 EP “The Butcher’s Delight” and our début album “Hellbent” released in 2013. The album will be the first for vocalist & rhythm guitarist, Jo & Robyn, as well as our new bassist. “Trafficked & Tortured” is our most serious song in terms of lyrical content and the music projects sadness, panic & anger. The song is about a young lady’s account of being kidnapped by a human trafficking syndicate, almost like the movie “Taken” but in our song she’s tortured as well. This may seem extreme but this type of thing happens to females all over the world and most of the time, it doesn’t have a happy ending. Being an all-female band, we’d like our content to reflect that which evokes emotion in us as women. This song empathizes with victims of violent crime against women around the world.
We welcome Katinka Janse van Rensburg to our junkyard on bass guitar. We are very excited to be whole again. With every member change we have gone through, a fresh perspective is brought into the mix and has contributed to the evolution of Junkyard Lipstick’s sound. We are eager to start writing new material with Kat to continue the Junkyard Lipstick journey.
You can catch our first performance with Kat on Friday 05 February 2016 at The Mercury Live where we will be supporting NervoChaos(Brazil) & Boargazm, along with Megalodon.
