“Ferocious”  – David Peisner, New York Times

May 11, 2018 – Poster Children returned earlier this year with the politically charged track “Grand Bargain!”, announcing a new album to come in spring. The album, of the same name, will be available on May 18 via Lotuspool Records. Today they share the new music video for the “Grand Bargain!” and announce upcoming summer tour dates to follow the album release. In the video, a child posing as Donald Trump plays out many of the President’s heavily publicized moments, which include lots of tweeting, eating fast food, and the infamous “Trump Drinks Water” moment during a speech on national security.

Poster Children originally formed in Champaign, Illinois in 1987 by Rick Valentin (guitar, vocals) and Rose Marshack (bass, vocals). Jim Valentin joined on guitar in 1991 and Matt Friscia (drummer #7) joined in 2001. They have released eleven studio albums, on various independent and major labels, and one feature-length film, “Zero Stars”. Known for their strong DIY ethic, the band members toured incessantly in the 1990s, driving their own van around the US and Europe, creating their own artwork and T-shirt designs, and operating their own record label. Poster Children were also pioneers in several forms of electronic technology relating to performance art, including enhanced CDs, webcasts, and blogs.

America held hostage day one

A lot of folks woke up without power this morning

It’s every man for himself

And every woman at 70% of the going rate

Poster Children, “Grand Bargain!”
