Indie rock troupe Muncie Girls have today released a collection of B-Sides recorded at The Ranch with Lewis Johns during their sessions for the band’s latest album ‘Fixed Ideals’. Titled ‘B-Sides the Point’, the six tracks have been corralled into an EP, which is available now on all digital services and on 12” vinyl, limited to 300 copies, via Specialist Subject Records, with Buzz Records releasing the collection in North America.

The EP’s songs naturally fit in with the themes of ‘Fixed Ideals’, as vocalist and guitarist Lande Hekt’s heart and ideas are once again laid bare through cutting social commentary, personal storytelling and endearing melodies.

Hekt says of the EP “The song ‘Rain’ is about the government, old men in power, fear-mongering, the FTSE 100 and having friends who know how fucked up everything is. Most of the songs on this record are quite topical, with a concept song about a single mother of three trying to survive on the welfare state (‘Five Miles’, which is based upon an article that author Sue Townsend wrote in the 80s about how the welfare state left her scouring the streets for pennies) and a song about how much I don’t enjoy Made in Chelsea (‘Idolise’).”

Muncie Girls are also heading out on a UK headline tour this month, playing their first shows in well over six months, having most recently played the main stage at 2000trees festival last summer. Prior to that, they’d spent much of 2018 and 2019 touring, sharing stages with the likes of Taking Back Sunday, Frank Iero and The Get Up Kids in the UK & Europe, as well as playing shows as far away from home as Australia and Japan.
