Alice Bag, co-founder of the iconic first-generation Los Angeles punk act The Bags, this spring will release her third solo album, a collection called Sister Dynamite that is being described as a return to the “full-throttle punk” that her late-’70s band perfected.

The album, featuring 12 songs, is slated to be released April 24 on In the Red Records, and can be pre-ordered on CD or vinyl directly from the label, or digitally via Amazon.com.

The label describes Bag’s follow-up to 2016’s Alice Bag and 2018’s Blueprint as such:

“An unbridled celebration of community and the undeniable power in embracing your own truth, the collection confronts some of the most pervasive problems troubling our world today: unchecked privilege and willful ignorance, systemic inequality and fragile masculinity. “

Below, check out the Allison Wolfe-directed video for “Breadcrumbs,” featuring the Bob Baker Marionette Theater as well as Nina Diaz, Seth Bogart, members of The Linda Lindas, Death Valley Girls and Fatty Cakes & the Puff Pastries. Plus, check out all of her tour dates — including shows opening for reunited riot grrrls Bikini Kill — and the album artwork and tracklist.
