Las Vegas, NV, June 11, 2012 – SquidHat Records is proud to announce the release of “I Am A Robot”, The first full length album from The Dirty Panties, one of Las Vegas’ most popular live acts and one of the only exclusively female punk bands working today. A CD Release show is scheduled for July 20, 2012, at the world-famous Double Down Saloon in Las Vegas.
“In the male dominated world of punk rock we are thrilled to be working with such a talented group of young ladies.” said SquidHat Records President and founder, Allan Carter. “The Dirty Panties represent a fresh new voice in modern punk and present a strong message that aggressive, angry, indie music should not be gender biased.”
The Dirty Panties officially formed in 2001. Like most great ideas, the concept of The Dirty Panties was born at a New York City bar, in a drunken stupor, and had a history even before it had instruments. After moving to Vegas, creating a solid local following and undergoing a few personnel changes, The Dirty Panties solidified their line-up with founding member, Barbara Lenox, on guitar; lead singer, Melanie Ash; Michelle “Lil’ Moe” Meyer on bass; and Kayley “Animal” Malcolm on drums. Through extensive touring throughout the Southwest, the Dirty Panties have earned the reputation as a “must see act” and become iconic in Las Vegas and beyond.
Influenced by the DIY past of NYC punk and the raw style of the garage rock renaissance, The Dirty Panties have created their own unique sound. They write and perform powerful, infectious songs that reflect the band’s personality. From getting drunk, feminism and rejection, to their take on what it means to be a girl in the punk scene in the anthem “Pretty In Pink.” “The Panties” as their fans call them, are a unique, hard working punk rock band that know their way around a dive bar, a catchy song and a concert stage. To see what it’s “all about” you need to see them live. Fair warning: take these girls lightly at your own risk.
To celebrate the release of “I Am A Robot”, The Dirty Panties will perform the album, in it’s entirety, at a special CD Release show on Friday, July 20th, at the Double Down Saloon in Las Vegas. SquidHat Records artists, The Gashers, will open.
Look for the new Dirty Panties release, “I Am A Robot”, available from SquidHat Records on Tuesday, July 24, 2012.
