The SoapGirls Unveil Brand New Video ‘Johnny Rotten’

The SoapGirls unveil new video ‘Johnny Rotten’ & fight unprecedented censorship and trolling on Social Media.

The SoapGirls unveil the video for Johnny Rotten a dark, angst, yet catchy song that is straight from the heart.

Johnny Rotten’s vicious lyrics and hooky chorus shines, with their ever-so-edgy vocals, fuzzed guitar and throbbing bass creating a menacing blast of rock’n’roll
The song is written from the perspective of Marli Van Breda, who survived an axe attack from her brother Henri, who brutally murdered his parents and brother, as they slept.

Henri claimed “it was a random man that broke into their home after finding an the axe outside the house. It was so chilling to hear the emergency call he made 3 hours after the attack, he was even laughing at some points,we were captivated,disgusted and shocked by the cold blooded evilness so much so that we wrote the song.”

Watch now the raw and disturbing Johnny Rotten video:

Shot it in an abandoned reformatory we see an axe murderer’s anguish as he loses his mind.

The SoapGirls are on their biggest tour to date over 8 months between Europe and UK and have a new album in the wings. However, this year they are experiencing an unbelievable amount of censorship and hate, waking up to find that Facebook had deleted without warning or chance to save years worth of content build up since 2011 the start of their page with almost 100 000 likes and followers.

As their popularity grows, they have been encountering escalating issues with trolls, other bands and more alarmingly a much bigger faceless entity which had the power to have facebook delete the girls fan page of 8 years without justification or warning a monumental loss to the band as they were given no chance to save any of their content but refusing to be thwarted they have since almost 3 weeks ago created a new page with their fans rallying behind them. The constant harrasment impedes on their abilities especially whilst on tour even so much that  Their manager’s personal profile is regularly banned for 3 month periods while Noemie’s profile has been deleted 4 times in the last week “we receive notification about inciting violence and being a security risk and its alarming to appreciate that there is a bigger nameless entity behind them losing a page and getting answers from facebook is like hitting a brick wall.

“We are enemies of the system and as much as they try to shut us down we will continue to rise against!

The SoapGirls - Enemies of the System

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
