The Julie Ruin Return with 'Hit Reset'

The Julie Ruin Return with 'Hit Reset'
The mighty Kathleen Hanna has returned to deliver another album with the Julie Ruin. The indie icon and her cast of collaborators have prepped an album called Hit Reset for new label home Hardly Art, and it hits stores July 8.

The record is the first from the group since 2013's Run Fast and also follows the release of The Punk Singer, a documentary on Hanna's long and storied career. The band began working on their sophomore collection at the end of 2014, with the record said to expand on the band's sound by making it "dancier in spots and moodier in others."

Lyrically, Hanna is said to have taken "a leap into the personal," arguably more so than ever before. Part of this is owing to the developing relationship between her and her bandmates, who hadn't played a show together prior to the release of Run Fast.

"I was way more honest lyrically on this record because we'd been on the road together and I felt more confident taking risks in front of my bandmates," she said in a statement, adding, "I've written about my personal bouts with illness, abuse, sexism and how hard it is for me to walk away from people even when they are toxic Tasmanian Devils before, but not in this way."

Below, you'll find a video for Hit Reset's first single, "I Decide," which features a cameo from Waxahatchee.
