Hands Up, Desk Flipped: The Julie Ruin release new track ‘I’m Done’, announce tour dates


We all have a love/hate relationship with Facebook, but sometimes it delivers much-needed good news on a Monday morning. A few hours ago an event page unexpectedly popped up for The Julie Ruin’s July 21 show at the Sinclair in Cambridge, and some easy internet sleuthing revealed a treasure trove of news from Kathleen Hanna’s band. Stereogum has premiered their latest single, the synth-squealing hands-up-and-quit-this-bullshit bop anthem “I’m Done” (a popular refrain while traversing through standard Monday workday pitfalls), and it comes with full-on tour news: The Julie Ruin will head out on an extended run of North America and Europe that takes them to the end of 2016.

“I’m Done”, meanwhile, serves as the second single from The Julie Ruin’s new record Hit Reset, which is out July 8 via Hardly Art records. Pre-order it here get down with “I’m Done” below, and listen to Hanna covering a bit of Bruce Springsteen here.
