THE SOAPGIRLS Unveil New Video ‘Johnny Rotten’ 

THE SOAPGIRLS Unveil New Video ‘Johnny Rotten’

The SoapGirlsThe SoapGirls unveil the video for Johnny Rotten a dark, angst, yet catchy song that is straight from the heart.

Johnny Rotten’s vicious lyrics and hooky chorus shines, with their ever-so-edgy vocals, fuzzed guitar and throbbing bass creating a menacing blast of rock’n’roll

The song is written from the perspective of Marli Van Breda, who survived an axe attack from her brother Henri, who brutally murdered his parents and brother, as they slept.

Henri claimed “it was a random man that broke into their home after finding the axe outside the house. It was so chilling to hear the emergency call he made 3 hours after the attack, he was even laughing at some points, we were captivated, disgusted and shocked by the cold-blooded evilness so much so that we wrote the song.”

The SoapGirls are on their biggest tour to date over 8 months between Europe and UK and have a new album in the wings. However, this year they are experiencing an unbelievable amount of censorship and hate, waking up to find that Facebook had deleted without warning or chance to save years’ worth of content build up since 2011 the start of their page with almost 100 000 likes and followers.

As their popularity grows, they have been encountering escalating issues with trolls, other bands and more alarmingly a much bigger faceless entity which had the power to have Facebook delete the girls fan page of 8 years without justification or warning a monumental loss to the band as they were given no chance to save any of their content but refusing to be thwarted they have since almost 3 weeks ago created a new page with their fans rallying behind them. The constant harassment impedes on their abilities especially whilst on tour even so much that their manager’s personal profile is regularly banned for 3-month periods while Noemie’s profile has been deleted 4 times in the last week “we receive notification about inciting violence and being a security risk and its alarming to appreciate that there is a bigger nameless entity behind them losing a page and getting answers from Facebook is like hitting a brick wall.

“We are enemies of the system and as much as they try to shut us down we will continue to rise against!

Armed with unforgettable melodies and catchy choruses, The SoapGirls energy, rawness and authenticity live, has earned them a formidable reputation.  Catch the band on their Stinks Like Punk tour.  They promise “pure freedom” and a show that is “unhinged, dramatic, energetic, manically fun and will remind you to live in each moment without fear of judgement. As an audience member you are as much a part of our show as our instruments, you will never be the same”

The SoapGirls write outsider anthems and Johnny Rotten is the third single from their album Societys Rejects.

Alluring, hypnotic and nonchalant The SoapGirls remind us that music can still be straight to the point, efficient, honest and exciting, so brace yourself for The SoapGirls’s next chapter.
