OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
Inspired by 2 events:
"RIOT" is about our fights for equal rights that are happening on our streets globally. "Hear me scream - your silence won't protect you" - roars Nadya Tolokonnikova, frontwoman and a founder of Pussy Riot.
The "RIOT" music video shoot will be released shortly.
"RIOT" is a part of a bigger project and will lead to the release of the first ever Pussy Riot studio album (the album's name is to be announced later).
The track is recorded in collaboration with IXXF, a Berlin-based hyperbolic IDM artist, who creates trap and deconstructed club music blended in with pop anthems, making this sound as if 100 gecs, Charli XCX and Rage Against The Machine ran into each other at the rally and decided to make a protest anthem.
Pussy Riot's member Peter Verzilov is serving 15 days in jail at the moment. He was arrested since the police wanted to neutralize him before Putin's big vote for constitutional changes that will allow Putin to stay in power till 2036. On the 21th of June, at 7 am Moscow time, 20 policemen cut out the door of Pussy Riot's Peter Verzilov with a grinder. Peter's electronic devices and documents were seized “confirming involvement in the organization of the riots". We don't know the details of the criminal case yet, but currently the court locked Peter down for 15 days under an absurd accusation of "petty hooliganism".
On the 29th of May Pussy Riot has released track "1312" about police violence ("1312" stands for "ACAB", "all cops are bastards") and a Manifesto against police brutality with a superstar Chilean feminist collective LASTESIS - because of this manifesto Chilean police initiated an investigation against LASTESIS suspecting them of inciting violence against the police. On the 13th of May Pussy Riot released KNIFE EP and the "KNIFE" music video dedicated to the problem of domestic violence which is one of the biggest issues in Russia currently; earlier this year Pussy Riot established an award against domestic violence and paid 3.000 euros to 3 winners of the award who made the best media materials on the topic.
Pussy Riot is a totally independent art collective that relies only on support of its audience - SUPPORT PUSSY RIOT ON PATREON!
