"'Brooklyn Goes Hollywood' is an alternative electro pop-punk reverie." -AltPress

"Shiragirl has defied easy definition for the past decade, bouncing between speedy guitar-based anthems and sugary bops while earning the appropriate title: 'Punk Rock Madonna.'" -Billboard

JUNE 29, 2018 - LOS ANGELES, CA - Punk rock artist and women's empowerment activist, Shiragirl, has premiered the live video for her single "Summers Comin" exclusively with New Noise Magazine. Watch HERE. The track is taken from Shiragirl's recently released EP, Brooklyn Goes Hollywood, which was lauded as "an alternative electro pop-punk reverie" by AltPress. Produced by Tim Armstrong (Rancid, The Transplants, Pink, The Interrupters) and John King (Beastie Boys, Beck, Dust Brothers), Brooklyn Goes Hollywood features a new sound; one that fuses punk rock, new wave and modern dance pop. The EP is available now on all digital platforms. For more information on Shiragirl, please visit:

With deep roots on the East Coast, this "Punk Rock Madonna" first splashed onto the scene after crashing the Vans Warped Tour. As the legend goes, a young, determined Shira showed up in her iconic pink RV, created her own stage and performed atop it with her band. After receiving a rousing crowd response, Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman invited Shira to return the following summer to host an official Shiragirl Stage. The stage went on to host over 200 female-fronted bands, many making their Warped debuts, including Paramore on their first ever tour, and the legendary Joan Jett. This year, the Shiragirl Stage returned to the 2018 Vans Warped Tour for select dates, including Pomona, San Diego, Ventura and more, and hosted artists such as Blameshift, Shiragirl, Elana J, No Small Children, Whitney Peyton, Bridge City Sinners, Turbulent Hearts and Moa, plus new additions Rivals, Vanessa Silberman and Babs from Emo Nite (DJ set). Shiragirl is also set to perform on the Full Sail Stage at select Warped Tour dates in July, including Milwaukee and Indianapolis.

With the Shiragirl Stage, Shira accomplished her mission to inspire and empower women, by providing them a platform for creative expression. She also broke into the boys club, and made Punk Rock history. Shiragirl's story was featured in the book 'Misfit Summer Camp: 20 Years On The Road With The Vans Warped Tour'. She received an MTV Warpie Award, and a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Warped Tour Time Capsule Exhibit as well.

Shiragirl went on to rock stages across North America, including support slots for Rancid, NOFX, and Juliette Lewis. In 2017, Shiragirl shot a music video for her single "RESIST" at the Women's March, and was invited back to play the 2018 Women's March. Shiragirl may travel far and wide, but her soul will always be Forever Warped.
