Having both formed at First Timers Fest, Big Joanie and Charmpit have garnered a loyal and passionate following on the DIY underground scenes here in the UK. With this joint release on Kill Rock Stars, their punk infused sounds will be reaching wider, equally as passionate audiences in the US and beyond.
Kluster Room Sessions features an early recording of Big Joanie’s track ‘Cut Your Hair’ on the A side, and Charmpit’s single ‘Bad Attitude’ on the B side. “We leapt at the chance to do a split EP with Big Joanie because we love them,” explained Charmpit’s guitarist & vocalist Rhianydd YorkWilliams. “We’re so psyched to be working with Kill Rock Stars. They are a cool breeze to work with and we have so much love for what they do.”
After releasing their debut album Sistahs in 2018, Big Joanie are also planning to share their highly anticipated second record via Kill Rock Stars in 2021. “I grew up idolising practically every band on the Kill Rock Stars roster when I was a teenager,” explains Big Joanie’s guitarist & vocalist Stephanie Phillips. “We all have so much admiration for the work Kill Rock Stars has done and their influence on the punk scene. We’re so happy they can join us on this next journey of Big Joanie to help us reach new audiences.” Big Joanie’s 2021 second album will also be released in the UK and Europe via Thurston Moore and Eva Prinz’s label, Daydream Library Series.
