Hunx and His Punx have entered the chat today with new singles “White Lipstick” & “Lose My Mind”, out now via Sub Pop’s Sub Pop Singles Club Vol 7, with an accompanying video directed by J.J. Stratford.
“White Lipstick” b/w “Lose My Mind” is their first new release since 2013’s Street Punk. “White Lipstick” - named after an as-yet-unmade John Waters movie - is about being a queer teenager seeing women perform in bands and wanting to be just like them. “Lose My Mind” is a reflection on how terrible the world is, America’s abundance of guns, and wanting to give up and die, but deciding instead to keep fighting. It’s about thinking, “Fuck, what should all the women and queers and weirdos that don’t like guns do? Do we need them to protect ourselves?” It’s about hating guns.
First formed in 2009 by Seth Bogart (aka Hunx) with Shannon Shaw (Shannon & The Clams) and Erin Emslie (Secret Stare), Hunx & His Punx have been a touchstone reference for many indie bands and mainstream pop darlings, earning critical fanfare along the way. Hunx and His Punx will celebrate the release with three shows: August 25 in Portland, OR; October 29 in Austin, TX; and October 31 in Brooklyn, NY at the 17th Annual NY Night Train Haunted Hop Halloween Spooktacular with Martin Rev (Suicide), Christeene, and many more.
