This summer we wives along w/ @girlsrocklondon put out an open call asking female identifying & non binary fronted music projects to join us on our fall headline tour as support and share the stage w/ us. The open call lasted a week & by the end of that week we received 433 submissions. Going through them took weeks and wow the amount of incredible music that came our way blew our minds. Thank you to all who submitted & shared your stories w/ us❤️. Over half the submissions came from the UK & was the hardest decisions to make. We also narrowed it down to local musicians for each city. Excited to play this month on our UK leg w/ @bobbykakouris @arxxband @bigjoanieband #thehippaes @girlfriendband @catapostropheband @dollie_demi !!
