Childbirth is the Seattle-based guitar band that includes members from a few key groups in the city's scrappy rock scene: Chastity Belt, Tacocat, Pony Time. The trio's new full-length is out this fall via Suicide Squeeze Records, and today we're debuting "Let's Be Bad," the band's newest punk freak-out. It's a half-whispered, half-shrieked call-to-action, encouraging ladies to embrace all the indulgences that society tries to make them feel guilty about: splitting a dessert, showing up a little late for work, wearing skirts that barely fit. It's a rousing, ragged example of the way most Childbirth songs tend to be laugh-out-loud funny while also getting at some deeper, more empowering truths. The album, called Women's Rights, is due October 2nd.
