Muncie Girls will release their hotly-anticipated second album 'Fixed Ideals' on 31st August via Specialist Subject Records in the UK & Europe, Buzz Records in North America and Lost Boy Records in Australia.

'Fixed Ideals' covers topics of anxiety and mental health, the effects of too much alcohol wasting potential, having a desire to learn and be educated, as well as focusing on personal relationships and the importance of friendship and family. And what we feel when those relationships let us down.

The first single from the record, 'Picture of Health', is an impossibly catchy slice of punk-driven melodic perfection, which was written when vocalist and guitarist Lande Hekt realised "how much easier it is to worry about your friends than it is to worry about yourself." NPR have said that the song is "Absolutely fetching...'Picture of Health' blast[s] out the gate with thunderous drum fills and arena-bopping riffs"
Muncie Girls' line-up is completed by guitarist Dean McMullen and drummer Luke Ellis and the three grew up in Exeter, playing local DIY shows to their friends, which is still something they enjoy immensely.

Since the release of their debut album 'From Caplan To Belsize' in 2016, they've toured the UK & Europe extensively and they've performed in Australia and Japan, as well as playing appearing at world-renowned festivals such as SXSW, Glastonbury and Reading & Leeds.

    Muncie Girls

    Punk

    Muncie Girls released their highly acclaimed debut album ‘From Caplan To Belsize’ on 4th March, 2016 via Specialist Subject Records in the UK. Animal Style Records released the album in the US and Uncle M had the honours over in Germany. The record has received much attention and plaudits from the likes of Kerrang!, Rock Sound, Upset, Noisey, DIY, The Line of Best Fit & Punktastic. Muncie Girls were also nominated for ‘Best British Newcomer’ at the Kerrang! Awards 2016. Recent singles have received plays on BBC Radio 1, Kerrang! Radio, Amazing Radio & Scuzz TV.

    Born in punk shows and dive bars to three driven teenagers in 2012, Muncie Girls embodies the classic punk rock story in a modern context. Fuelled by discontent and anxiety, they eloquently address issues of modern living as a self-aware young adult. The result is an ambitious and poignant rebellion against social norms that touches on everything from politics to interpersonal relationships. Musically, the album is a dynamic and emotional exploration of punk and indie rock. The album’s bouncy catchiness is sure to be a hit with fans of Hop Along, Lemuria, Latterman, and RVIVR, but one of the defining characteristics of Muncie Girls is their ability to explore outside their immediate influences. Ultimately, what sets Muncie Girls apart is vocalist & bassist Lande Hekt’s unique perspective and its impact on her understated lyricism. Hekt’s dry, unembellished writing style is, in many ways, reminiscent of classic American literature – a trait exceptionally unusual for a punk rock band from Exeter.
