Featured Artist: The Horny Bitches

It’s hard to know what exactly to expect from a band who calls themselves The Horny Bitches, but if you guessed that they are a witty and raunchy four-piece female punk rock band with a rockabilly appearance and vocals that are the very definition of badass, then you are correct.

Founded in 2007, the Montreal band currently consists of four cleverly-named members; Virgin Slut (on rhythm guitar and vocals), Juicy Mary (on lead guitar and vocals), Jizza Belle (on bass), and Melicious (on drums and vocals). Mainly featuring the themes of sex and BDSM, their debut 2010 album, 13 Reasons to Fuck, includes fitting tracks such as, “Choke Me” and “Suck N Swallow.” The album introduces their signature catchy sound with graphic lyrics and loud harmonies. It’s obviously not for the faint at heart, but it makes for a fun listen.

Their second and latest album, Heart and Guts, may seem innocent enough judging by its title but don’t be fooled; it also revolves around sex, and features songs like, “Ripe & Tight” and “In Cock We Thrust.” Their music is everything that good punk music should be; loud, angry, controversial, and against all expectations. They aren’t afraid to speak their minds or to make you feel uncomfortable.

They recently released a music video that combines their songs “The Triple” and “Think like a Dick” and it is a frat party wet dream. It starts out pretty tame with the band singing on stage but then escalates into a fury of binge-drinking and awkward party sex.

If their albums and video leave you thirsty for more, then make sure to look out for their third album that is currently in the works, and look out for some top secret big news that they will be releasing this fall. They’ve recently toured with the likes of The Brains, D.O.A., and Vibrators, and are set to play several more shows around Quebec and Ontario this summer. One of these shows is the 11th edition of Amnesia Rockfest.

Located in Montebello, this year’s festival will take place from June 23-26th, and will feature everyone from Blink-182 to Rise Against, Jane’s Addiction, Korn, and Ice Cube, amongst others. If The Horny Bitches’ music video is any indication, then their set is sure to bring one giant party to the stage that you will not soon forget.
