BABES IN TOYLAND talk next record, current lineup and more with Elliott of Little Punk People in NYC

Kat, Lori & Clara of Babes in Toyland sat with Elliott Fullam of Little Punk People at their Irving Plaza show in NYC and talked about how their new record will probably sound heavier than their previous releases along with how well things are going with their new bassist Clara. They also discuss a lot more in the video link below.

The band was incredibly sweet to Elliott and they even gave him a big shout-out in the middle of their set. The lights went on him and they had him stand up and wave back at everyone and the band, which was amazing. And the band played an energetic set to a full house of enthusiastic fans who screamed along to favorites such as “Bruise Violet” and “Oh Yea”. Their new bassist Clara showed a persona of total bliss (we also witnessed her proud father watching the show in bliss as he was sitting right near us) and she held her own alongside the ferocious performance of drummer Lori Barbero and singer/guitarist Kat Bjelland, whose vocals sent shockwaves throughout the venu. Babes in Toyland are currently on their reunion tour which ends at FUN FUN FUN Fest in Austin, Texas on November 6th.

And they signed Elliott’s record! Thanks again, gals!!!

Babes in Toyland announce first reunion show

Lead vocalist and guitarist Kat Bjelland had this to say about the band’s decision to reunite:

“It was brought to my attention that not only do we have a lot of diehard fans from back in the day, but also a whole new generation of kids–my son Henry included– that were eager to see us live. I felt some kind of obligation for them to see us, too. But mainly, I just missed my girls and the feeling that comes from playing with them–visceral live therapy.”

Bass player Maureen Herman added, “The first time we played together again, we weren’t sure what it would be like. After knocking the hell out of ‘He’s My Thing’ on the first try, we knew this was going to be fun–and it was going to rock like a motherfucker.”

Babes in Toyland, who lasted for only three albums (Spanking Machine, Fontanelle, and Nemesisters), broke up in 2001 after fourteen years together. The band announced their reunion last July.
