more about...
Childbirth is a “supergroup” in the sense its members are all in other hit bands (Julia Shapiro of Chastity Belt, Bree McKenna of Tacocat, Stacy Peck of Pony Time) and also that they do good for the world while in costume. The band’s feats are performed in maternity gowns rather than the traditional cape, but the gowns flap around as dramatically and are probably more comfortable. And honestly writing a song about an astronaut who wears adult diapers is cooler than flying.

Childbirth’s forthcoming album, Women’s Rights (out 10/2 via Suicide Squeeze Records), is piss-your-pants funny—subject matter includes a trashy friend bringing coke to a baby shower (“Baby Bump”) characteristics that warrant an instant “swipe left” on Tinder (“Siri, Open Tinder”) and dating vapid IT douches (“Tech Bro.”) Lyrics on Women’s Rights are highly quotable—from “Tech Bro:” “I’ll let you explain feminism to me/If I can use your HD TV.”
