Leeds/Newcastle-based rock quintet Venus Grrrls have shown once again why they’re “ones to watch” with their latest single. ‘Bloodsick’, is a fuzz-laden juggernaut, supercharged with a charismatic chorus, led by vocalist GK.

“Bloodsick describes a change, or a metamorphosis of a being that has become far more insular and isolated” says Venus Grrrlsvocalist of the track, “It is a grief of what once was, that transcends into a bittersweet liberation of a new body, or way of living both physically and emotionally.”

It is Venus Grrrlssecond single of the year, following ‘Divine’.

Venus Grrrls Have Announced a UK Headline Tour Too

The release of ‘Bloodsick’ coincides with news of Venus Grrrls’ first headline UK tour. Scheduled to take place in September, the tour will see them partnered with stem cell transplant charity Anthony Nolan.

Anthony Nolan uses its register of 900,000 people to match potential stem cell donors to blood cancer and blood disorder patients in need of stem cell transplants. With Venus Grrrls’ GK having experienced acute myeloid leukaemia (AML), it is a cause close to the band.

During the eight-date run, Anthony Nolan volunteers will be available to provide information about stem cells, their role in treating AML via transplant and the importance of people aged 16-30 signing up to the stem cell register.

“When people in the public eye, like GK, share their experiences, it inspires others to seek out how they can help which is why we’re thrilled Venus Grrrls will be encouraging their fans to learn more about stem cell donation on tour,” commented Charlotte Cunliffe, Director of Register Development at Anthony Nolan. “At Anthony Nolan, we know that one individual can transform the lives of patients with blood cancer and blood disorders. VENUS GRRLS fans – your stem cells could hold the key to someone’s survival and starts with a simple swab. We need people aged 16-30, particularly young men and those from minority ethnic backgrounds, to join the Anthony Nolan register. By doing so, you could be the lifeline someone desperately needs, offering them a second chance at life.”
