Thunderpussy announce North American tour dates

Seattle rockers Thunderpussy have confirmed summer North American tour dates, which feature headline gigs along with shows beside Black Pistol Fire and Hollis Brown.

New York stops on their hike include Buffalo at Cobblestone Live on August 3, and NYC at Brooklyn Bowl (w/ Hollis Brown) on August 9 [TIX]. Tri-state area fans can also catch the band at Asbury Park, NJ’s The Saint on August 8, and Philly’s Milkboy on August 10. See a full tour itinerary below.

In more news, the gals are currently fighting to trademark their band’s moniker. Here’s more info as per an official statement:

The band is currently awaiting the outcome of a Supreme Court case, Iancu v. Brunetti, which will determine the fate of trademarking their name. In May 2015, Thunderpussy applied for a US trademark to protect their name and brand in preparation for world domination. A short time later, they received a letter from the US Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) denying the band their trademark on the grounds that their name was “immoral” and “scandalous” per the guidelines laid down in the Truman-era Lanham Act of 1946, even citing Urban Dictionary as a credible source as to why the word pussy is regarded as a derogatory term. As women, Thunderpussy’s intention has always been to shed a positive light on a word that has been used in a derogatory manner and seen as a joke or weak. Because it is exactly the opposite – the word pussy is powerful.

Lastly, Thunderpussy have just shared a live video for their new cover of Jefferson Airplane’s popular “Somebody to Love” track — stream it after the dates.
