In the lead up to next week's release of Outernational's politically charged Here Is The Rose EP, the Brooklyn, NY-based revolutionary rockers have teamed up with the Amoeblog today to offer an exclusive advance free download of the EP track "She Craves Spring" that features Canadian power vocalist Lindi Ortega. Click "Download" above for your free advance copy of the the pro-feminist bluesy rock ballad track that features lyrics such as, "This woman knows there's no man above / Your brothel's are filled with a slave-master's love / All my sisters, ready to fly / Breaking tradition holding half the sky."
The new release is deliberately scheduled to drop on International Women's Day, March 8th, 2013. "We are releasing the Here is The Rose EP right now, in time for International Women's Day, because right now millions of people, and millions of women in particular are speaking and acting out against their daily oppression - patriarchy, rape culture, sexual objectification and dehumanization," explained Outernational guitarist Leo Mintek. On Thursday March 7th, the night before the EP drops, Outernational will be celebrating the release with a new weekly residency at Arlene's Grocery in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. 10pm shows.
