Civet On Tour With Dropkick Murphys
February 6, 2009
Never ones to shy away from testosterone-laden road trips, the girls of Civet are taking their punk rock show on the road once again with Dropkick Murphys, beginning on February 20 at the newly restored historic Hollywood Palladium.
Civet have honed their chops supporting Dropkick Murphys last year, as well as tours and shows with labelmates Rancid and Tiger Army and dark rockers Aiden, who Graves described as "our dark and scary rock n roll male equivalent," possibly because of both band's taste for black eyeliner.
Civet's Hellcat Records debut, 'Hell Hath No Fury', came out last fall, and the girls have not stopped working since. Like Runaways-era Joan Jett channeling Motorhead, the brash and tattooed chicks are proving that they can hold their own with any all-guy bands out there today.

Civet Set To Release Debut Album
August 5, 2008
The ferocious hellions of Civet are set to unleash their Hellcat Records debut album entitled 'Hell Hath No Fury' on September 09, 2008. Hailing from the notorious punk stronghold of Orange County California, it’s obvious these brash young ladies have learned from their heroes, who, by the sound of it, are Joan Jett’s legendary Runaways and a whole bunch of power-chord wielding, blow your hair back classic punk rock bands from GBH to The Misfits and Motorhead.
"This album is definitely our fiercest to date,” the band proclaims. “It’s balls out, unapologetic femme-fatale punk rock and roll which is the music we love."
And the music Civet loves sounds like four ultra confident, delinquent sex bombs playing some of the loudest and fastest songs you’ve ever heard. 'Hell Hath No Fury' is the perfect soundtrack to a night of unadulterated chaos, a careening joyride through a landscape of pool halls, girl-fights, pissed off lovers, and riotous all night punk shows.
Hellcat let the ladies loose in a recording studio with producer Julian Raymond and the result gives Civet’s raucous sound an added thickness and power without losing any of their primal street punk passion. Standout songs such as "Son of a Bitch" with it’s nasty surf guitar hook and anthem-like chorus and the memorable old-school punk pop of "All I Want", co-written with Rancid front-man Tim Armstrong.
"Working on this record was awesome,” the band says. “We pulled together all our different influences and laid down some real heartbreak songs with a couple of FTW ones thrown in for good measure. And we got to co write with Tim Armstrong which was amazing. This record really inspires us and we’re confident it will do the same for our fans - both new and old!"
'Hell Hath No Fury' Track List:
01. Do a Line (of alibis)
02. Son of a Bitch
03. Pay Up
04. All I Want
05. Bad Luck
07. Take Me Away
09. Gin n Tonic
