    Here comes The Julie Ruin.

    Riot Grrrl pioneer Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Le Tigre) released a solo album under the name "Julie Ruin" in the late '90s with the intention of forming a band to perform the songs live. In 2010, with Le Tigre on hiatus, K. Hanna began to build her dream team.

    Hanna will release the new Julie Ruin album, titled Run Fast, on September 3 via TJR Records, distributed via Dischord.

    Some details on the players:

    The Julie Ruin album features Kathi Wilcox on bass (Bikini Kill bandmate), Kenny Mellman on keys ("Kiki and Herb"), Carmine Covelli on drums (actor, filmmaker and musical juggernaut) and Sara Landeau on guitar (met Kathleen mentoring at Rock Camp for Girls.)

    Hanna and co. will embark on the FIRST-EVER Julie Ruin tour this September, too! It's summer -- go see a show.
