Vanity Theft Premiere Music Video, Release Album Digitally

Vanity Theft, the all-girl quartet from Ohio, seem hellbent on reviving the rough and tough riot-grrl ethos typified by female artists like Sleater-Kitty, Joan Jett and Bikini Kill, while also offering punky dance tunes similar to The Ting Tings. Or as bassist Lalaine Paras succinctly put it: “We may have vaginas, but we’re not pussies.”

That defiant-but-playful attitude is on full display in the band's video for their first single, the catchy and lyrically blunt "Anatomy" (draw your own conclusions about what the girls are singing about) from their new album Get What You Came For. The album is currently available digitally on Vigilante/Adamant Records, and will be released physically on March 1st.

The band also begins a North American tour with Hunter Valentine February 2nd. Touring is nothing new to the band though, who steadily built a following with successful stints on the 2009 Warped Tour and national road shows with acts like Sick of Sara.

The girls can put on their boogie shoes when required, as the drum n' bass-style remix of "Limb From Limb" by Chicago's Chrissy Murderbot proves. Check out the video for "Anatomy," as well the remix for "Limb From Limb" and a list of tour dates below:
