It has been kept secret for months now, but finally Bad Pollyanna have released a minute long teaser of their upcoming single "Invincible Girl"!
The song, a favourite amongst their fans, has been re-arranged and re-recorded in anticipation of its release. The single itself is due out on August 11th in aid of The Sophie Lancaster Foundation and will feature a subsequent Invincible Girl merch range, CD, Download and 7" Vinyl Pressing to be sold over at the Bad Pollyanna store, Illamasqua store and the foundation's website.
Cult makeup brand Illamasqua and its founder Julian Kynaston have been long time supporters of S.O.P.H.I.E. - even naming a number of their products after the foundation and donating a portion of profits from sales.
Regarding the band's work with Illamasqua, vocalist Olivia Hyde says "When we were approached by Julian and Illamasqua to be involved in this project, it felt very natural for us as an alternative band to say yes. It is an absolute pleasure to be a part of this project as we fully support the hard work that Sylvia Lancaster and the foundation is doing to promote tolerance towards alternative sub-cultures and other groups whether that be in schools or even festivals and we hope that this single will help spread the foundation's message further than ever before!"
Bad Pollyanna will be promoting the single in the run up to it's release with two special events at Sound Control, Manchester on the 30th July and Trinity Church, Leeds on the 31st. Limited tickets are available over at shop.badpollyanna.com
