In 2012, two members of Pussy Riot, Nadya Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina, were sentenced to two years in prison for a live performance at Moscow’s Cathedral of Christ the Savior. They were charged with “hooliganism” for their anti-Putin “punk prayer,” and the name Pussy Riot spread far and why as a result.

Since their release in 2014, Pussy Riot has collaborated on a number of projects, but xxx, which features Tolokonnikova, introduced a distinct anti-Trump sentiment. The most recent single is the decidedly more pop “Police State.” The tour will also feature Tolokonnikova.

Dates are already selling out, and more are sure to be added. Check them out here.
