Le Tigre reunite for new pro-Hillary Clinton song “I’m With Her” — watch

on October 19, 2016, 11:00am


All it took was the impending election of the country’s first female president to reunite feminist dance-punk group Le Tigre. After nearly a decade, the trio of Kathleen Hanna, JD Samson, and Johanna Fateman have reconvened to record a new song entitled, “I’m With Her”. As the title suggests, the rallying anthem is dedicated to Hilldog and features lyrics like, “I want a problem solver, a true rock climber/ Pantsuit-wearing herstorical first-timer/ I want a listener, a negotiator/ A legal scholar, supreme court nominator.”

The song’s accompanying video, embedded above, includes video from Clinton rallies interspersed with footage of the band and kitty cats.

Le Tigre last released music in 2004 with The Island. In the years since, Hanna formed The Julie Ruin with Bikini Kill bandmate Kathi Wilcox, and Sampson has fronted the electropop collective MEN.
