UK lo-fi punk/shoegaze duo two-piece Kamikaze Girls have announced that they are working on new material – and that they will release it under a new name, Cultdreams. The band are currently in the studio recording the follow up to 2017’s Seafoam.
Read a statement on the decision to change the name below.
In a short statement, the band explained their decision on social media:
“Hey friends. We’ve decided to change our band name after it was brought to our attention that the used of the word ‘kamikaze’ could be insensitive to others, given the origins of the word and its cultural history.
“We always strive to learn and do better both as musicians and people, and want to encourage inclusivity and more open dialogue regarding cultural issues within music and across other areas of life and society.
“From today onwards we are Cultdreams. We’re heading into the studio next week to record our second album and we’re super excited about it! Thanks, and big love for your continued support. Conor and Lucinda, Cultdreams x”
