Blondie’s ninth studio album ‘Panic Of Girls’ glances backward but resolutely moves forward, remaining keenly observant of street-level pop culture and the roiling musical melting pot of New York City. The core trio of vocalist Deborah Harry, guitarist Chris Stein and drummer Clem Burke have embraced younger band-mates, collaborated with up-and-coming producers and discovered new songwriting partners, yet have eschewed chasing trends.  “We’re part of the future as well as the past,” declares Harry. “When we first got back together in 1997, one of the stipulations I had was that it not be just a review of Blondie’s greatest hits. I really felt convinced of and dedicated to the idea that we had to move ahead and do new music. I’m really happy that this CD is coming out and represents the Blondie tradition, yet it also has a statement that is part of today.”  

Blondie has come a long way from CBGB’s and the Bowery, having sold more than 40 million albums globally and repeatedly reaching the top of the charts over the course of four decades with such hits as “One Way Or Another,” “Heart Of Glass,” “Rapture” and “Maria.” In 2006, Blondie was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. Burke notes, the band’s plaque is situated right below the Beatles — deservedly in good company! Blondie continues to be a powerhouse live act, attracting huge audiences around the world. Don’t miss your opportunity to see them when they appear at this year’s RBC Bluesfest.
