Kate Pierson – iconic voice and founding member of the B52s, punk, new wave, genre-defying band has produced her debut solo record ‘Guitars and Microphones’, coming February 17 via Kobalt Records.

Produced by Tim Anderson (Ima Robot) and featuring Nick Valensi of The Strokes on several tracks, Kate collaborated on songwriting with Sia who also executive produced the album.

Album opener “Roses” is an empowering humanist anthem, maintaining that one can embrace the world, radiate positivity and still kick butt when necessary. Kate’s soaring emotive vocals on “Mister Sister“ is a poetic love letter of the power of transformation- welcoming the freedom to live (and dance ) and daring to transcend gender boundaries . Upbeat title track, “Guitars and Microphones” plays upon a galactic pop groove. The lush “Bring Your Arms” is an immediately infectious synth-pop jam with a move to the groove environmental theme.

Along with being a B52, Pierson has collaborated with The Ramones, Iggy Pop, David Byrne, REM. and Gnarls Barkley. Guitars and Microphones marries party rock, psychedelia and socio-political punk. Revered for her anthemic pop chops, Kate’s songs are rife with girl group wit, drama—rejecting stereotypes and preconceived ideas at every turn. This is humanism and feminism out for a real good time.
