    FRIENDSHIP COMMANDERS SINGLES // "WOMEN TO THE FRONT" AND "SAW AND HEARD"!

    I'm behind on my updates! We were on tour with ROYAL THUNDER when "WOMEN TO THE FRONT" was released on September 6th, so it was all we could do to share it on the FC pages etc. And now today, our third and last single in advance of the BILL album is out; it's called "SAW AND HEARD." I'll talk about that in a minute. First: touring with RT ruled. They were awesome. It was awesome. We hope it happens again! Thanks to all who came out to the shows!

    Now, about "WOMEN TO THE FRONT"!

    The video was directed by Buick Audra; shot by Jerry Roe and Perry Bean! Noteworthy performances were contributed by Heather Donegan and Grant-Lee Phillips, among many others!

    On “WOMEN TO THE FRONT”:
    What if, instead of competing with or steering clear of other women, we stood for and with each other? What kind of bold new frontier could we possibly create were we to abandon the trappings of old belief systems and get current? I am encouraged by recent movements of solidarity among women around the world. I crave more. Stand together. (Buick Audra)

    Finally, about "SAW AND HEARD"!

    This was one of the first songs written for the BILL album, and many of you have heard us play it on the road over the last two years. It's near and dear to us; we hope you like it. The music was produced by Steve Albini and us. We made a lyric video for this one; please enjoy.

    On "SAW AND HEARD":
    The moment at which we reclaim our personal traumas and difficult experiences is one in which we gain the power. Staring abuse and abusers in the eye and saying, “I see it now, and I see it so very clearly,” strips those forces of any power they once possessed. It’s never too late to take back what’s yours, dignity included.
