EMILIE AUTUMN – NEW ALBUM “FIGHT LIKE A GIRL” – EUROPEAN TOUR IN MARCH
„THE ASYLUM FOR WAYWARD VICTORIAN GIRLS“ NOVEL AVAILABLE NOW
Beautiful, bizarre, and brazen sonic seductress and violinist extraordinaire, EMILIE AUTUMN has announced a new album and a European Tour for March. New album FIGHT LIKE A GIRL is due to be released in June – release date hasn’t been announced yet – but Emily already wants you to fight alongside her on this spring’s „Fight Like A Girl“ tour.
Known for her eccentric style and prodigious musical talent (she began reading notes before learning the alphabet and was already playing violin at four years old), Emilie spent her youth playing concert halls throughout the U.S. and Europe as a classical violinist before going mad, landing herself in an insane asylum and emerging as a rock singer with a murderous streak.
Taking its name from the title track and first single of her forthcoming album – the follow-up to her groundbreaking debut, „Opheliac“, Emilie starts her European tour in Germany on March 13th, ending in Brussels on April 12th.
Each show promises to be an experience. With a theatrical thread, a little classical flare, and the right dose of dirty rock ’n‘ roll attitude, the „Fight Like A Girl“ tour will undoubtedly be EMILIE’s most memorable run yet. If you’re one of her affectionately dubbed „Plague Rats“ or among the uninitiated, this is a sexy spectacle that’s not to be missed. Beyond her violin virtuosity on stage, she elegantly strikes that effervescent balance between sex, violence, and English literature. Part Broadway, part burlesque, part rock concert, part history lesson, there’s nothing quite like it anywhere…
„It’s more brutal and bloody“, affirms the ringleader with a playful grin. „There’s more girl-on-girl action and glitter. The corsets are even tighter. It’s become Victorian Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. It’s a rollercoaster. You’re going to feel like you’ve stepped into a dark Disneyland.“
That experience is propelled by the autobiographical drama at the heart of EMILIE’s intriguing new literary tome, “THE ASYLUM FOR WAYWARD VICTORIAN GIRLS”. Released last year to widespread adoration, elements of the novel’s wickedly dark narrative will be brought to life on stage, and they’re also encapsulated in her new single and battle cry, „Fight Like A Girl“.
Are you ready to join EMILIE in this FIGHT?
