Pussy Riot's Make America Great Again: Group announces new EP xxx

They also announced a new EP ‘xxx’ is out Friday

Posted on

Following the releases of “Organs” and “Straight Outta Vaginas,” Pussy Riot released another new track, “Make America Great Again,” and announced an EP, xxx, due out Friday.

The EP will house the three songs, all written about the current political climate. Their most recent release, “Make America Great Again,” co-written by Ricky Reed, is the most direct dig at Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. In a video directed by Jonas Akerland, the band parody a cable news network run by Trump with the slogan, “Make America Great Again,” and imagine a dystopian world where Trump wins the presidency.

“No more Muslims! No more Mexicans!” a fake news anchor screams over footage from Trump’s rallies. A woman is then branded with the words “outsider” and “fat pig.”
