New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Ground-breaking Indonesian all-girl rock/ metal trio VOICE OF BACEPROT (VOB) released their powerful single "The Enemy Of Earth Is You" on May 18- a call-to-action protest anthem against indifference to climate change-which Louder Sound praised for its "infectious grooves and nimble-fingered riffs." Born out of the trio's high school years, "The Enemy Of Earth Is You" is a powerful, passionate anthem wrapped in VOB's trademark ferocity and marks the debut single from VOB's upcoming debut album RETAS due in July (exact date tba). VOB have shared a lyric video featuring animated artwork and caricatures of themselves.

VOB—Firdda "Marsya" Kurnia (vocals & guitar), Widi Rahmawati (bass) and Euis "Sitti" Aisyah (drums)—are also excited to share they will be heading to the U.S. for the first time this summer to perform at the Head In The Clouds Festival Los Angeles Music & Arts Festival taking place at Brookside At The Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA on August 5-6. Passes go on sale Tuesday, May 30 at 10am PT here.

VOICE OF BACEPROT (pronounced 'bah-che-prot') formed in Garut, West Java in 2014. The word "baceprot" from their band name comes from the Sundanese language meaning "noisy" and was chosen to represent the style of music that they play. The trio, who are all Muslims, sing in English, Bahasa Indonesia and Sundanese, and have faced opposition from conservative Muslims, in their hometown due to the unique and contradictory combination of performing heavy rock/metal music and their wearing of the hijab on stage.

In 2018, VOB released their globally acclaimed debut single, "School Revolution" which drew in support from media across the globe and featured appearance at several local and international virtual music festivals including the UK's virtual WOW (Women of World) Festival where they were introduced to now Queen Camilla Parker-Bowles. Further hit singles including "God, Allow Me (Please) to Play Music," "[NOT] PUBLIC PROPERTY" and "PMS" (short for "Perempuan Merdeka Seutuhnya which translates to "Wholly Independent Woman") followed.

After several years of blood, sweat, and tears, VOB are set to unveil their greatest work yet: RETAS. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for further details.
