Beautiful, bizarre, and brazen sonic seductress and violinist extraordinaire, EMILIE AUTUMN wants you to fight alongside her on this fall's "Fight Like A Girl" tour. Known for her eccentric style and prodigious musical talent (she began reading notes before learning the alphabet and was already playing violin at four years old), Emilie spent her youth playing concert halls throughout the U.S. and Europe as a classical violinist before going mad, landing herself in an insane asylum and emerging as a rock singer with a murderous streak.
Taking its name from the title track and first single of her forthcoming album due out this month, the follow-up to her groundbreaking debut, "Opheliac"
The show promises to be an experience. With a theatrical thread, a little classical flare, and the right dose of dirty rock 'n' rollattitude, the "Fight Like A Girl" tour will undoubtedly be EMILIE's most memorable run yet. If you're one of her affectionately dubbed "Plague Rats" or among the uninitiated, this is a sexy spectacle that's not to be missed. Beyond her violin virtuosity on stage, she elegantly strikes that effervescent balancebetween sex, violence, and English literature. Part Broadway, part burlesque, part rock concert, part history lesson, there's nothing quite like it anywhere…
"It's more brutal and bloody," affirms the ringleader with a playful grin. "There's more girl-on-girl action and glitter. The corsets are even tighter. It's become Victorian Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. It's a rollercoaster. You're going to feel like you’ve stepped into a dark Disneyland."
About the single, Emilie comments: "The song kicks off the record, and it's about women realizing that they are in fact 51% of the population, and learning how to take back their power. In the story, the inmates of a Victorian insane asylum for girls break free and go on a rampage against the doctors who terrorized them. For me, 'Fight Like a Girl' means to fight like the ultimate badass you are. It's time to take back the words and phrases that are used to ridicule girls and insult boys and transform them into sources of power. If you're going to live, then fight, and every fight scene needs a good soundtrack. This record is my soundtrack. Of course, there's an overriding story arc. It's a social critique of the mental healthcare system spanning from the 19th century all the way up to the present, as well as the inequality women still face worldwide, whether they’re “crazy” or not. I’m drawing upon my own personal experience as a notoriously bi-polar person who has been committed and lived to tell the tale. Hopefully, my story will give strength to those who need it, and raise a little awareness."
The tune undoubtedly will, especially as EMILIE is set to perform it nightly as a fitting precursor to the release of the album next year.
