Guitar rock diva, songwriter, on-air personality and masterful entertainer Palmyra Delran has released her newest single, “I Thought You Said That You Were Gonna Kill Yourself,” off her upcoming album. The track, which Substream Magazine calls “smart and witty,” focuses on the idea that in our culture of convenience, we sweat the small stuff. “It’s a comment about people who overdramatize small situations in their world, without considering that other people may have heavy shit going on in theirs,” Delran shares.
“I Thought You Said That You Were Gonna Kill Yourself” is the second single off Delran’s new album, Come Spy With Me, out November 9th via Steven Van Zandt’s Wicked Cool Records in partnership with The Orchard. Last month, Delran released the album’s title track featuring Little Steven, Debbie Harry (Blondie), and John Carlucci (Fuzztones), which spotlights the resurgence of the 60s and 70s punk sound in the modern punk scene.
Delran is inciting espionage and bringing fans along for the ride with the release of her forthcoming album, Come Spy With Me, which stays true to her longtime artistic vision as she assumes producing and tracking duties.
A punk pioneer, Palmyra Delran’s musical integrity stems from years at the forefront of all things rock ‘n’ roll. Packing more melody than her riot grrrl counterparts and more rock grit than most members of the alt-rock boy’s club, her impressive career spans a stint in Pink Slip Daddy and co-founding nineties girl group The Friggs - who released the seminal Rock Candy, shared the stage with the likes of The Ramones and Cheap Trick, and also lent tunes to big-screen classics such as Superbad and Jawbreaker.
Upon the band’s dissolution, Palmyra poured herself into multiple musical projects, releasing unforgettable solo music and unexpected collaborations, including an acclaimed set of singles with Bubble Gun (John Carlucci, Laura Carlucci, Michelle Balderrama, & Rikki Styxx), that showcase the multifaceted nature of her talent. Her 2013 album, You Are What You Absorb, featured “You’re My Brian Jones” and was met with praise for Palmyra’s adrenaline-rush rhythms and potent musical skill which Guitar World described as “another intoxicating blend of punk-girl grit combined with hook-laden melodies and deep lyrics.”
