The incendiary Petrol Girls picked up the coveted Hercury Prize last night for their album ‘Baby’. The album delivers 11 awesome tracks, including lead single ‘Baby, I Had An Abortion’ – a ‘party-banger about having an abortion and not being sorry about it’ – which is raising funds for Abortion Without Borders.
The band have recently announced a European tour for the album throughout October and November, with UK supports including previous Hercury Prize winners The Menstrual Cramps in Bristol.
The prize was announced last night in a “glitterish” ceremony, broadcast on LOUD WOMEN’s socials. You can watch it again here
and here’s Ren Aldridge’s acceptance speech!
Congratulations to Petrol Girls, and to all of the shortlisted artists. Check out the full list on this playlist:
