Vivian Girls ‘Share The Joy’ With Release Of Their New Single


Brooklyn-based all girl trio, Vivian Girls, are sparking interest in their latest album Share the Joy with the release of their first single, “I Heard You Say”.  The album, which is the ladies’ third release but their debut on the Polyvinyl label, continues the ever evolving path of the group’s own mixture of garage thrash backed with their sweet melodic voices.  Vivian Girls have been getting quite a bit of attention with their latest release as they venture into a more mature sound and have become very influential among young budding girl groups.  

With their video for “I Heard You Say”, Vivian Girls keep the setting simple while letting the lyrics speak for themselves.  Add in the nostalgic guitar and hard-hitting drums and the combination is the perfect blend.  

Vivian Girls will launch their tour February 22nd in Los Angeles and will spend two months trekking across the US before coming to a close in Houston on April 29th.  They will be sharing the stage various acts along the way including Catwalk, Cold Showers, Black Lips, Surfer Blood, Thee Oh Sees, The Strange Boys & more.

Vivian Girls Share The Joy


Spring may seem far away, especially for those of us plagued by a constant influx of snow, but the Vivian Girls were kind enough to send over a new song and some good news. The threesome-guitarist/vocalist Cassie Ramone, bassist/vocalist Kickball Katy and new drummer Fiona Campbell have announced an April 12th release date for their new album Share The Joy.

“The sound is more open, more free.  I think that this album really shows our strengths as musicians, and shows us melding together musically. Share the Joy has the most diverse batch of songs of any of our albums,” says Ramone of the album. And that is evident in the record’s first single, “I Heard You Say,” which can be listened to below and downloaded HERE.

In a few days, the trio will take to the road for a nationwide tour, promoting Share The Joy.
