Members of feminist protest group Pussy Riot have released a new video for song “Like A Red Prison” for the first time since three were sentenced to serve two years in prison for “hooliganism motivated by religious hatred.” The video and song are commentary on the link between Russian president Vladimir Putin’s involvement with the oil industry and features scenes of one member of the group splashing oil onto an image of Igor Sechin, the head of Rosneft, Russia’s state oil firm. Earlier this summer, HBO released a documentary about the collective called A Punk Prayer that focuses on the three members, Nadezhda “Nadia” Tolokonnikova, Maria “Masha” Alyokhina, and Yekaterina “Katerina” Samutsevich who were on trial. Samutsevich was released from prison on appeal, while Tolokonnikova and Alyokhina are still serving their sentences in Russian penal colonies. Other members, like the ones featured in this video, have been attending screenings to do Q&As with the audience and directors. Watch their video for “Like A Red Prison” below.

  1. Kinda sounds like Fugazi. I’ve also heard that a lot of the members of Pussy Riot are like 15 years old. This song kicks ass.

  2. If only this band could come to the States to play shows.

  3. “Cut off you penis like the Depardieu character” is my new favorite insult.
