Delilah Bon releases new single

Festival dates have now also been announced at Kendal Calling, Maui Waui, Shambala, Burn It Down and Drown U Out.

DELILAH BON (the alter-ego of Lauren Tate from Hands Off Gretel) is angry, like countless others throughout the world, following the recent news coming from the US that sees more women and those with uterus’ lose their rights and bodily autonomy. While many of us recoil at the injustice and the horror in silence, Delilah speaks out with an eloquence and a fury.

Built on the firm foundations of female empowerment, Dead Men Don’t R*pe fuses hip-hop, punk and nu-metal with a ferocious, screamed rap over razor-wire guitar riffs. “My body is mine / Don’t belong to the government,” Bon screams, commanding full attention. You can almost taste the hurt, the betrayal, the anger.

Listen to the single here:

Dead Men Don’t R*pe is a song that addresses a system that is failing to protect victims of abuse. With a rise both in violence towards women and worldwide femicide, Delilah is prepared to be a voice for those that do not have one. There are some things that need saying out loud, and sometimes it takes a courageous young woman to say them.

Following her acclaimed debut self-titled album, Delilah previously announced her first UK tour for the autumn of this year, which follows festival appearances at Kendal Calling, Maui Waui, Shambala and Burn It Down, and precedes her appearance at Drown U Out festival alongside the likes of SCARLXRD, ZAND, Bob Vylan, DANA DENTATA and GHØSTKID.
