Joanna New-some - Line-Up Change & Extensive Tour For Cardiff Noiseniks

Article written by Kev W - Jun 3, 2015

It's sad but exciting times for scuzzy indie-punks Joanna Gruesome, as they sadly say goodbye for now to singer Alanna McCardle who is leaving for personal reasons. Replacing her as the band prepare to head out on an extensive tour of the UK and US later this year, are Kate from the band Pennycress as well as Roxy who has been a member of bands including Two White Cranes and Towel.

Read Alanna's statement in full, we wish her all the best and thank her for being involved in making some amazing music.

"Lately, my mental health problems have become a lot worse and I've gone through a pretty shitty time. I've realised I need to actually take some time out to focus on some kind of 'recovery', so I won't be singing in Joanna Gruesome anymore. I hate to sound cheesy but the time I had in jgro was life-changing. I made friends with so many amazing people, had the chance to play with some of my favourite bands, went to places I'd never been before (metaphysically and geographically) and pissed off a lot of men in the process. I am really proud of everything I've done with the band, especially Peanut Butter, and I think we've made some really great records. Thanks to everyone who ever put up with me on tour, and anyone who stopped any assholes from hurting other people at our shows xo"
