War on Women to Open for Good Riddance at House of Independents On Saturday

(ASBURY PARK, NJ) -- War On Women, a co-ed feminist hardcore-punk band, will be at House of Independents in Asbury Park on Saturday, May 14th to support Good Riddance.  Doors open at 6:30pm, showtime is 7:00pm.  School Drugs is also on the bill.

Formed in Baltimore, MD in 2011, War On Wome use driving riffs and in your face vocals that attack the listener both sonically and lyrically, penning catchy and confrontational songs that touch on rape culture, street harassment, the gender wage gap, transphobia, and other vitally pertinent social issues. The band has shows in the United States and Canada on this tour and they're excited to be back on the road and performing again.

“This is only our second time back in the van since the pandemic hit and we couldn't be happier to see everyone's masked faces again!” said Shawna, War On Women,

Riff-fueled manifestos are nothing new for War On Women. The co-ed feminist punk troupe has been tackling injustice one song at a time since their 2010 inception. Storming out the gate with teeth gnashing and spitting venom, War On Women’s self-titled 2015 debut crossbred riot grrrl ferocity with the nimble aggression of thrash. Hailed for their crystalline jabs at societal ills, War On Women prove that hardcore can incite change that ripples far beyond the parameters of the stage.

House of Independents is located at 572 Cookman Avenue in Asbury Park, New Jersey.  Tickets are $17 and available for purchase online.
