MUSIC NEWS: Kamikaze Girls Announce Name Change
Lo-fi punk/shoegaze duo Kamikaze Girls have announced that they’ve changed their name to CULTDREAMS and are busy working on new music.
The two-piece are currently in the studio recording the follow up to their 2017 debut album Seafoam and will be revealing details of this and live dates later this year.
See the statement that the band released on their social media:
“Hey friends. We’ve decided to change our band name after it was brought to our attention that the used of the word ‘kamikaze’ could be insensitive to others, given the origins of the word and its cultural history.
“We always strive to learn and do better both as musicians and people, and want to encourage inclusivity and more open dialogue regarding cultural issues within music and across other areas of life and society.
“From today onwards we are Cultdreams. We’re heading into the studio next week to record our second album and we’re super excited about it! Thanks, and big love for your continued support. Conor and Lucinda, Cultdreams x”
