The SoapGirls proudly announce the release of their new album – the angry, reflective and beautifully honest “Society’s Rejects” on July 21st.
The perfect balance of attitude, swagger and raw rasping vocals – Societys Rejects, is full of straight up rock’roll songs – tons of energy, flashes of anger and serrated guitar-driven angst. Nothing can stop The SoapGirls inevitable rise to the top.
Arresting and compelling Society Rejects encapsulates and distills perfectly The SoapGirls live energy and replicates perfectly the thrill of their live show. The SoapGirls uncompromising brand of music has been labelled “Revolt Rock’, a mix of revolting and revolutionary music.“Put it this way if music was a hand, revolt rock would be the middle finger, it’s there to piss people off make them think in this fucked up world.”
“Stand up, you know you’ll be shot down, life’s free but you’re gonna pay somehow” sings Mille on the opening title track, setting the tone for the whole album about society and how it “rejects anyone that tries to question the system. We are sold a dream of being free when in actual fact we’re not, if you do not conform and follow the guidelines society sets out for you you are vilified and rejected”
The energetic and diverse Society’s Rejects is full of finely crafted songs and rock’n’roll attitude. With unforgettable melodies and catchy choruses, the fifteen musical nuggets on the album include previous singles as bonus tracks: the primal and emotional break up song Rather Be Dead and the Bad Bitch, a caustic slice of vitriolic rock’n’roll.
The SoapGirls also “bring humour to the situation with Party in Hell, life’s already fucked up so might as well rock the party however you like, the politicians are so why cant we?”

Society Rejects is “a kick in the face followed by a kiss, it’s raw dramatic angry and passionate with warped humour thrown in” and finds The SoapGirls at their full creative tilt delivering frenetic garage rock with heavy and psychedelic overtones with a modern twist. Armed with a venomous swagger and catchy, riff-oriented guitar grind, backed up by their strong songwriting abilities, dedication and determination to their craft, The SoapGirls have earned them a formidable live reputation and this raucous force of nature with a love for screaming guitars, in your face bass, and raw vocals have delivered a statement of intent with their exceptional debut.
The striking artwork captures their vision and fights back for women rights “first of all society tells you to cover yourself and be ‘decent’ so in true SoapGirl fashion of course we weren’t gonna do that”.
Alluring, hypnotic and nonchalant The SoapGirls, the French born sisters Ca(Millie) and Noe(MIE) Debray, hail from South Africa and were given their name by the general public back in 2004. “We’ve been The SoapGirls since we were 8 and 9 selling hand made soap and street performing for various causes, we did this 365 days of the year for 9 years”. Displaced master musicians and political agitators – few can match the SoapGirls visceral sonic hypnotic beauty and soul.
Societys Rejects is a record from a band that have found their sound and is ready for the world to hear. There’s always hope for a new dawn however dark the sky might seem!
