Team Dresch have released their new song “Basket” following their recently released “Your Hands in My Pocket” earlier this summer. According to Brooklyn Vegan, “Basket” was mixed by past collaborator John Goodmanson, who has also worked with Bikini Kill, Sleater-Kinney, Harvey Danger and more. Both songs mark the band’s first release of new music in 19 years and are also aligned with a 25-year celebration of their album Personal Best. Along with the celebration, the band reissued their entire music discography, including Personal Best and Captain My Captain. “Just when you thought life couldn’t possibly get any gayer, Team Dresch is back to dance this Queercore mess around and talk about the climate crisis in between drop-D grunge licks! Why? Because we’re alive and want to be with our people” the band stated about the reissue.
The band has also announced a handful of tour dates slated to begin Sep.29 in Washington D.C. and concluding Oct. 7 in Durham, NC. Fellow bands Des Ark, Teenage Halloween, Feminine Aggression & DUMP HIM, Screaming Females, Princess, Shepherdess & Stubborn Hearts are set to join the band on select dates.
