Press ReleaseCraig Owens of Chiodos recently recorded a cover of the Bikini Kill song “Rebel Girl” and has released the song in an effort to raise awareness and funds for two causes close to his heart Girls Rock Camp Allianceand the Equal Rights Advocates. Fans can purchase the song now and make a donation to both causes HERE.

Craig Owens explains, “I have always had an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and often find myself in books or documentaries on the subject of things far from me physically but close to me mentally and emotionally. During my daily routine of trying to educate myself on things that I was curious about, I heard about a documentary called "Girl Rising." Women and girls still earn less for every dollar that men and have barriers to education. I recorded “Rebel Girl” with Dave Trumfio in Los Angeles in early September. It was written and originally released by Bikini Kill. 100% of net profits from sales will go directly to Equal Rights Advocates and Girls Rock Camp. Both these organizations continue to help pave the way towards equal rights for girls and women everywhere. Please share, like, purchase or donate directly to the organizations on Rebel Girl song page: https://craigowens.bandcamp.com/ - love Craig.”

The Girls Rock Camp Alliance is an international 501(c)3 coalition of organizations whose shared mission is to empower girls and women using the tools of music education to foster self-esteem and confidence. The Equal Rights Advocates (ERA) is a national nonprofit legal organization dedicated to protecting and expanding economic and educational access and opportunities for women and girls.

“Rebel Girl” was recorded and produced by Dave Trumfio(Wilco, Grand Daddy)with Celso A. Estrada and Craig Owens at Chateau Trumfio. It features: Craig Owens on vocals, Dave Trumfio on synths, guitars and programs, Celso A. Estrada on synths and programs and Denny Westin on drums.“Rebel Girl” was originally recorded and written byBikini Kill.

Not really into the musical choices here, but I do think Craig himself does a vocally good job

I wanted to like it, but holy fuck this is terrible. The music itself isn't so bad, the vocals just completely killed it for me.
