Dream Nails have just dropped a mighty new single – ‘Kiss My Fist – a punkrock marching anthem, railing against homophobic violence. The track comes from their self-titled album, now scheduled for release in September, on Alcopop! Records.
Guitarist Anya Pearson says:
“As a queer woman, I live in fear of violence every day because of my sexuality and the way I look. We were all shocked by that image of queer couple Melania Geymonat and Christine Hannigan, who were left bloodied and bruised by a group of teenagers for refusing to kiss on a London bus.
In the UK anti-LGBT hate crime has surged in the past five years. On the one-year anniversary of that attack, we are releasing Kiss My Fist in honour of all the queer people of this world trying to get from A to B without getting beaten up. Our message to homophobes and transphobes is clear: ask us to kiss again, and we will eat your brain”
